The mechanics of cancer cell adhesion to its neighboring cells, homotypic or heterotypic, have significant impact on tumor progression and metastasis. Intercellular adhesion has been quantified previously using atomic force microscopy-based methods. Here we show the feasibility of the recently developed fluidic force microscopy (FluidFM) to measure adhesive forces exerted by breast cancer cells. Multiple cell pairs were assessed at precisely controlled, increasing contact durations by pressure-dependent immobilization of a cell at the probe tip...

PURPOSE: HER3 (ERBB3) is a receptor tyrosine kinase that is implicated in treatment resistance across multiple cancers, including those of the breast, lung, and prostate. Overexpression of HER3 following targeted therapy can occur rapidly and heterogeneously both within a single lesion and across sites of metastasis, making protein quantification by biopsy highly challenging. A global, non-invasive methodology such as positron emission tomography (PET) imaging can permit serial quantification of HER3, providing a useful approach to monitor HER3 expression across the entire tumor burden both prior to and following treatment...

A 3-D microfluidic system consisting of microchamber arrays embedded in a collagen hydrogel with tuneable biochemical gradients that mimics the tumour microenvironment of mammary glands was constructed for the investigation on the interactions between invasive breast cancer cells and stromal cells. The hollow microchambers in collagen provide a very similar 3-D environment to that in vivo that regulates collective cellular dynamics and behaviour, while the microfluidic channels surrounding the collagen microchamber arrays allow one to impose complex concentration gradients of specific biological molecules or drugs...

Colorectal cancer is the third most prevalent type of cancer in the United States. Early diagnosis of lymph node metastases is essential to improve the prognosis for patients with colorectal cancer. Therefore, the present study aimed to screen genetic markers, including single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), copy number variations (CNVs) and mRNA expression, associated with lymph node metastases in patients with colorectal cancer to enable an early diagnosis. Targeted next-generation sequencing was applied to capture SNPs and CNVs in tumor-related candidate genes within tumor tissues from 39 colorectal cancer patients; reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction was used to detect the specific mRNA level of tumor-related candidate genes, including vascular endothelial growth factor C, cyclin-A2, Interleukin-2, ATP-binding cassette sub-family G member 2, epidermal growth factor (EGF) and nuclear factor kappa B subunit 1 (NFKB1) on chromosome 4...

Heterogeneity has long been recognized as a feature of some primary breast cancers manifesting as mixed histopathological subtypes or variable expression of the therapeutic targets ER, PgR and HER2. The recent emergence of next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies has revolutionized our understanding of the extent and nature of subclonal diversification. Careful examination of primary breast cancers often reveals multiple genomically distinct subclones that may contain driver alterations that follow spatial patterns of segregation...

Understanding tumor heterogeneity is an urgent and unmet need in cancer research. In this study, we used a morphology-based optical cell separation process to classify a heterogeneous cancer cell population into characteristic subpopulations. To classify the cell subpopulations, we assessed their morphology in hydrogel, a three-dimensional culture environment that induces morphological changes according to the characteristics of the cells (i.e., growth, migration, and invasion). We encapsulated the murine breast cancer cell line 4T1E, as a heterogeneous population that includes highly metastatic cells, in click-crosslinkable and photodegradable gelatin hydrogels, which we developed previously...

The tumor microenvironment is composed of heterogeneous populations of cells, including cancer, immune, and stromal cells. Progression of tumor growth and initiation of metastasis is critically dependent on the reciprocal interactions between cancer cells and stroma. Through RNA-Seq and protein analyses, we found that cancer-associated fibroblasts derived from human breast cancer brain metastasis express significantly higher levels of chemokines CXCL12 and CXCL16 than fibroblasts from primary breast tumors or normal breast...

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a heterogeneous subtype with varying disease outcomes. Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) are frequent in TNBC and have been shown to correlate with outcome, suggesting an immunogenic component in this subtype. However, other factors intrinsic to the cancer cells may also influence outcome. To identify proteins and molecular pathways associated with recurrence in TNBC, 34 formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) primary TNBC tumors were investigated by global proteomic profiling using mass spectrometry...

Breast cancer (BC) is a highly heterogeneous disease, both at the pathological and molecular level, and several chromatin-associated proteins play crucial roles in breast cancer initiation and progression. Here, we demonstrate the role of PSIP1 (PC4 and SF2 interacting protein)/p75 (LEDGF) in breast cancer progression. PSIP1/p75, previously identified as a chromatin-adaptor protein, is found to be upregulated in basal-like/triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) patient samples and cell lines. Immunohistochemistry in tissue arrays showed elevated levels of PSIP1 in metastatic invasive ductal carcinoma...

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a molecularly diverse grouping with poor prognosis for which chemotherapy remains the foundation of treatment. The molecular heterogeneity of the disease rationalizes its diverse biological behavior and differential response to treatment. Estimates of up to 20% of patients diagnosed have germline mutations in DNA-damage repair-pathway genes, namely BRCA1 and 2, and this can be used to select patients likely to respond to platinums and/or inhibitors of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP)...

Metastasis is a multistep process by which tumor cells disseminate from their primary site and form secondary tumors at a distant site. The pathophysiological course of metastasis is mediated by the dynamic plasticity of cancer cells, which enables them to shift between epithelial and mesenchymal phenotypes through a transcriptionally regulated program termed epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and its reverse process, mesenchymal-to-epithelial transition (MET). Using a mouse model of spontaneous metastatic breast cancer, we investigated the molecular mediators of metastatic competence within a heterogeneous primary tumor and how these cells then manipulated their epithelial-mesenchymal plasticity during the metastatic process...

Background: Breast carcinoma (BC) is a heterogeneous disease due to its different molecular profiles i.e. luminal (luminal A and luminal B) and non-luminal (HER2 positive and triple negative) subtypes. Prognostic value of clinicopathological factors of Indonesian BC of different molecular subtypes has never been reported previously. This study aims to elaborate prognostic impacts on Indonesian BCs focusing on separate molecular subtypes. Methods: A hundred and fifty cases of invasive BC, stage I-IIIA, in Sardjito Hospital, Indonesia, were stained using anti ER, PR, HER2 and Ki-67 antibodies...

BACKGROUND: c-Met has been shown to promote organ development and cancer progression in many cancers. However, clinicopathological and prognostic value of c-Met in breast cancer remains elusive. METHODS: PubMed and EMBASE databases were searched for eligible studies. Correlation of c-Met overexpression with survival data and clinicopathological features was analyzed by using hazard ratio (HR) or odds ratio (OR) and fixed-effect or random-effect model according to heterogeneity...

Metastasis is a highly complicated and sequential process in which primary cancer spreads to secondary organic sites. Liver is a well-known metastatic organ from colorectal cancer. Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is expressed in most gastrointestinal, breast, and lung cancer cells. Overexpression of CEA is closely associated with liver metastasis, which is the main cause of death from colorectal cancer. CEA is widely used as a diagnostic and prognostic tumor marker in cancer patients. It affects many steps of liver metastasis from colorectal cancer cells...

Lucy R Yates, Christine Desmedt
The genomic revolution has fundamentally changed our perception of breast cancer. It is now apparent from DNA-based massively parallel sequencing data that at the genomic level, every breast cancer is unique and shaped by the mutational processes to which it was exposed during its lifetime. More than 90 breast cancer driver genes have been identified as recurrently mutated, and many occur at low frequency across the breast cancer population. Certain cancer genes are associated with traditionally defined histologic subtypes, but genomic intertumoral heterogeneity exists even between cancers that appear the same under the microscope...

Cancer kills by metastasizing beyond the primary site. Early detection, surgical intervention and other treatments have improved the survival rates of patients with cancer, however, once metastasis occurs, responses to conventional therapies become significantly less effective, and this remains the leading cause of death. Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are tumor cells that have preferentially disseminated from the primary tumor mass into the hematological system, and are en route to favorable distant sites where if they survive, can develop into metastases...

Triple negative breast cancers (TNBCs) represent 10%-20% of primary breast cancers, and despite having greater initial sensitivity to cytotoxic chemotherapy, patients with TNBCs have higher rates of distant metastasis and a poorer prognosis compared with patients with hormone receptor positive and/or human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 positive disease. TNBC has historically been treated as a single disease entity in targeted therapy trials, but advances in gene expression profiling and other molecular diagnostic techniques over the last decade have revealed considerable biologic heterogeneity within TNBCs, including subgroups with distinct, targetable aberrations...

Microtentacles are thin, flexible cell protrusions that have recently been described and whose presence enhances efficient attachment of circulating cells. They are found on circulating tumor cells and can be induced on a wide range of breast cancer cell lines, where they are promoted by factors that either stabilize microtubules or destabilize the actin cytoskeleton. Evidence suggests that they are relevant to the metastatic spread of cancer, so understanding their structure and formation may lead to useful therapies...
