Prolactin Receptor-Driven Combined Luminal and Epithelial Differentiation in Breast Cancer Restricts Plasticity, Stemness, Tumorigenesis and Metastasis

The authors found that interfering with expression of the receptor for the lactogenic hormone prolactin in breast cancer cells representative of the luminal and epithelial breast cancer subtypes resulted in loss of their differentiation state, enriched for stem-like cell subpopulations, and increased their tumorigenic capacity in a subtype-specific manner.

S100A8/A9 Mediate the Reprograming of Normal Mammary Epithelial Cells Induced by Dynamic Cell–Cell Interactions With Adjacent Breast Cancer Cells

To understand the potential effects of cancer cells on surrounding normal mammary epithelial cells, researchers performed direct co-culture of non-tumorigenic mammary epithelial MCF10A cells and various breast cancer cells.

LncRNA TINCR Favors Tumorigenesis via STAT3–TINCR–EGFR-Feedback Loop by Recruiting DNMT1 and Acting as a Competing Endogenous RNA in Human Breast Cancer

The oncogenic role of TINCR was examined in vitro and in vivo in breast cancer. The interaction between TINCR, DNMT1, and miR-503-5p methylation was explored.

Spliceosome-Targeted Therapies Trigger an Antiviral Immune Response in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Scientists discovered that mis-spliced RNA itself is a molecular trigger for tumor killing through viral mimicry. In MYC-driven TNBC, spliceosome-targeted therapies caused widespread cytoplasmic accumulation of mis-spliced mRNAs, many of which form double-stranded structures.

Interplay between Desmoglein2 and Hypoxia Controls Metastasis in Breast Cancer

Investigators found that high expression of desmoglein2, a component of desmosome-mediated intercellular adhesion complexes, promoted tumor growth, increased the prevalence of circulating tumor cell clusters, and facilitated distant organ colonization.

Effect of SSRI Exposure on the Proliferation Rate and Glucose Uptake in Breast and Ovary Cancer Cell Lines

The authors examined whether three commonly prescribed selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), fluoxetine, sertraline and citalopram, affected proliferation or glucose uptake of human breast and ovarian cancer cell lines characterized by different malignancies and metastatic potential.
