The authors highlight the latest research progress made in the biological functions and regulation of PIWI‑interacting RNA in mammals, their involvement in various cancer forms and their potential clinical applications.
Different concentrations of doxorubicin (DOX), graphene oxide, and graphene oxide plus doxorubicin (GO-DOX) were subjected to MCF7 and BT474 human breast cancer cells at specified intervals.

The authors screened compounds inhibiting breast cancer cell proliferation with hematopoietic PBX-interacting protein (HPIP) fused with green fluorescent protein as a reporter. A novel agent named TXX-1-10 derived from rimonabant was discovered to reduce HPIP expression and had greater inhibitory effects on breast cancer cell growth and metastasis in vitro and in vivo than rimonabant.

To understand stratifiers, it is important that the field invests in key understudied areas of research including characterization of the tumor secretome and receptor activation in response to endocrine treatment, and mapping the ER-HER2-growth factor network in the normal and developing mammary gland.

Investigators focused on the crucial enhancer RNAs that participate in immune responses in invasive breast cancer.
Researchers showed that sublethal doxorubicin treatment led to increased migration and invasion in otherwise non-invasive MCF7 breast cancer cells.

The authors demonstrated that CRISPR-mediated knockout of miR-200c induced metabolic features similar to the metabolic rewiring caused by p53 hot-spot mutations, and that impairing this metabolic reprogramming interfered with miR-200c deficiency-induced stemness and transformation.

To scrutinize hormone response heterogeneity among breast cancer (BCa) tumor cells, scientists developed a precision tool to specifically measure estrogen receptor alpha (ER-α)-66, ER-α46, and eight ER-signaling proteins with single-cell resolution in the highly hetero-clonal MCF-7 BCa cell line.
