AUF1 Promotes Stemness in Human Mammary Epithelial Cells through Stabilization of the EMT Transcription Factors TWIST1 and SNAIL1

Scientists showed that AU-rich element RNA-binding protein 1 was an important inducer of the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition process through stabilization of SNAIL1 and TWIST1 and the consequent promotion of breast cancer stem cells.

Distinct Phenotypes of Cancer Cells on Tissue Matrix Gel

Scientists investigated mammary epithelial cell phenotypes and metabolic profiles on animal breast extracellular matrix-derived tissue matrix gel, Col I, and Matrigel. Atomic force microscopy, fluorescence microscopy, acini formation assay, differentiation experiments, spatial migration/invasion assays, proliferation assay, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy were used to examine biological phenotypes and metabolic changes.

PRMT1-Dependent Methylation of BRCA1 Contributes to the Epigenetic Defense of Breast Cancer Cells against Ionizing Radiation

Investigators found that by activating PRMT1, irradiation triggered a BRCA1-dependent program that resulted in efficient DNA repair and inhibition of apoptosis. Depletion of PRMT1 in irradiated cells resulted in a switch of BRCA1 functions from repair and survival in the nucleus to activation of cell death signals in the cytoplasm.

Copper (II) Metallodendrimers Combined with Pro-Apoptotic siRNAs as a Promising Strategy Against Breast Cancer Cells

The nanocomplexes formed by metallodendrimers and different siRNA were examined for their zeta potential and size, and by transmission electron microscopy, fluorescence polarisation, circular dichroism, and electrophoresis. The internalisation of dendriplexes was estimated by flow cytometry and confocal microscopy in a human breast cancer cell line, following the ability of these metallodendrimers to deliver the siRNA into the cell. In vitro cell viability experiments have indicated effective interactions between Cu (II) dendrimers and pro-apoptotic siRNAs: Mcl-1 and Bcl-2 in breast cancer cells.

AUF1 Promotes Stemness in Human Mammary Epithelial Cells through Stabilization of the EMT Transcription Factors TWIST1 and SNAIL1

Researchers showed that AUF1 induced epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and stemness in breast epithelial cells via stabilization of the SNAIL1 and TWIST1 mRNAs, and their consequent upregulation.

Extracellular ATP Promotes Breast Cancer Invasion and Chemoresistance via SOX9 Signaling

Researchers showed that sex-determining region Y-box 9 (SOX9) was up-regulated after adenosine 5′-triphosphate treatment in breast cancer cells. In vitro invasion and migration assays demonstrated that knocking down SOX9 attenuated ATP-driven invasive capability.

S‐Adenosylmethionine in Combination with Decitabine Shows Enhanced Anti‐Cancer Effects in Repressing Breast Cancer Growth and Metastasis

Scientists investigated the combined therapeutic effects of an approved nutraceutical agent S‐adenosylmethionine and FDA‐approved hypomethylating agent decitabine using the MDA‐MB‐231 xenograft model of breast cancer and found a pronounced reduction in mammary tumour volume and lung metastasis compared to the animals in the control and monotherapy treatment arms.
