BRCA1 Attenuates Progesterone Effects on Proliferation and NFκB Activation in Normal Human Mammary Epithelial Cells

Germline mutations in the breast cancer susceptibility gene BRCA1, encoding a tumor suppressor protein, greatly enhance the risk of breast and ovarian cancer. This tissue-specificity implicates the role of ovarian hormones. Indeed, BRCA1 has been …


Emerging Role of SOX Proteins in Breast Cancer Development and Maintenance

The SOX genes encode a family of more than 20 transcription factors that are critical regulators of embryogenesis and developmental processes and, when aberrantly expressed, have been shown to contribute to tumor development and progression in …


Metformin and Breast Cancer: Molecular Targets

Metformin has been the first-line drug for the treatment of type II diabetes mellitus for decades, being presently the most widely prescribed antihyperglycemic drug. Retrospective studies associate the use of metformin with a reduction in cancer …


A Syngeneic ErbB2 Mammary Cancer Model for Preclinical Immunotherapy Trials

In order to develop a practical model of breast cancer, with in vitro and syngeneic, immune-intact, in vivo growth capacity, we established a primary cell line derived from a mammary carcinoma in the transgenic FVB/N-Tg(MMTV-ErbB2*)NDL2-5Mul …


Inhibition of Tumor Progression by NG-Nitro-L-arginine Methyl Ester in 7,12- dimethylbenz(a)anthracene Induced Breast Cancer: Nitric Oxide Synthase Inhibition as an Antitumor Prevention

Breast cancer has high mortality rates among the women in the Republic of Armenia. It is now evident that nitric oxide plays important roles in various stages of carcinogenesis such as oncogene activation, tumor suppressor genes, modulation of …
