KDM3B-ETF1 Fusion Gene Downregulates LMO2 via the WNT/β-Catenin Signaling Pathway, Promoting Metastasis of Invasive Ductal Carcinoma

Scientists investigated the possible effects KDM3B-ETF1 fusion gene had on breast cancer cell metastasis, invasion and its downstream signaling mediators as revealed from RNA sequence data analysis.

The Harsh Microenvironment in Early Breast Cancer Selects for a Warburg Phenotype

Researchers subjected low-glycolytic breast cancer cells to different microenvironmental selection pressures using combinations of hypoxia, acidosis, low glucose, and starvation for many months and isolated single clones for metabolic and transcriptomic profiling.

The Cell-Surface Anchored Serine Protease TMPRSS13 Promotes Breast Cancer Progression and Resistance to Chemotherapy

Human breast cancer cell culture models revealed that siRNA-mediated silencing of transmembrane protease, serine 13 (TMPRSS13) expression decreased proliferation, induced apoptosis, and attenuated invasion.
