Long Noncoding RNA AFAP1-AS1 Promotes Tumor Progression and Invasion by Regulating the miR-2110/Sp1 Axis in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Researchers used Cell Counting Kit-8, colony formation, wound healing migration, Transwell invasion, and nude mouse xenograft assays to confirm the role of the lncRNA actin filament-associated protein 1 antisense RNA1 (AFAP1-AS1) in the proliferation, migration of TNBC cells in vitro and in vivo.

Genome Researchers Question Security Provisions in New US Senate Bill

Buried in a bill approved by the US Senate to help the United States compete with China is language that is drawing fire from human genome researchers. It would require the NIH to develop new security protocols aimed at preventing the misuse of US-funded genomic data by China and other nations.

Vimentin Promotes the Aggressiveness of Triple Negative Breast Cancer Cells Surviving Chemotherapeutic Treatment

Persistent cells were enriched for vimentinhigh sub-population, vimentin knockdown using siRNA approach decreased the invasive and sphere forming capacities as well as Akt phosphorylation in persistent cells, indicating that vimentin was involved in chemotherapeutic treatment-induced enhancement of TNBC aggressiveness.

Curcumin Loaded on Graphene Nanosheets Induced Cell Death in Mammospheres from MCF-7 and Primary Breast Tumor Cells

Researchers evaluated cell death in mammospheres from MCF-7 and primary tumor cells in response to curcumin loaded on graphene nanosheets. The nanocarriers graphene oxide and graphene quantum dots had no cytotoxic effect on Kerman male breast cancer/71 and MCF-7 tumor cells, while those loaded with curcumin induced death in more than 50% of tumor cells.

An AIB1 Isoform Alters Enhancer Access and Enables Progression of Early Stage Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Scientists CRISPR-engineered RNA splice junctions to produce normal and early stage ductal carcinoma in situ breast epithelial cells that expressed only AIB1Δ4. These cells showed enhanced motility and invasion in 3D cell culture.
