[Dalton Transactions] Based on the pharmacological importance of diosgenin, the obtained derivatives were exposed to study their effect on breast cancer cells where they significantly reduced the growth of cancer cells and left non-malignant breast epithelial cells unaffected.
[ACS Applied Bio Materials] Scientists described the use of two chemical modifications, incorporating a neuropilin receptor agonist peptide and a hypoxia-responsive lipid for targeting and release of an encapsulated drug from bovine milk exosomes toTNBC cells.
[Matrix Biology] Scientists reported that estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancers had lower hyaluronan synthase 2 antisense RNA 1 (HAS2-AS1) expression compared to ER-negative tumors. Moreover, the survival of patients with ER-negative tumors was higher when the expression of HAS2-AS1 was elevated.
[Cell Reports] The authors showed that high feline sarcoma-related non-receptor tyrosine kinase (FER) levels were also associated with improved outcomes after adjuvant taxane-based combination chemotherapy in high-risk, HER2-negative patients.
[Cell Death & Disease] Investigators showed that when Hsp70-binding protein 1 (HspBP1) was either knocked down or overexpressed in BRCA1-proficient breast cancer cells, there were profound changes in tumorigenesis, including anchorage-independent cell growth in vitro and in tumor formation in xenograft models.
