Tamoxifen resistance in breast cancer elucidating mechanisms synonym, new research in
The precise mechanisms of endocrine resistance remain unclear. Alterations in co-regulatory proteins The transcriptional regulatory activity of ER is mainly mediated by the formation of complexes with co-activator or co-repressor proteins.
In breast cancer, the role of miRNAs in tamoxifen resistance, through regulation of cell cycle regulatory proteins, has been suggested. Conclusion Endocrine treatment of ER-positive breast cancer with tamoxifen, and later with aromatase inhibitors and the estrogen receptor antagonist fulvestrant, are the first target-based therapeutic strategies in oncology.
Using both Ingenuity Pathway Analysis IPA and Roche GeneGo, we found a variety of different gene ontology terms for pathways and networks that were the most enriched for these different studies Table S1demonstrating the difficulty in studying the overlap between individual gene signature studies.
Previously known miRNAs were also implicated, with increases in mir expression which targets tumor suppressors as well as up-regulation of mir and mirA which are both involved in the development of more aggressive phenotypes capable of migration and metastasis.
Several studies have also suggested that estrogen promotes resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs tamoxifen and cisplatin by increasing the Bcl Injury-specific ex vivo treatment of the donor lung: Overall, Cluster 3 contains many of the traditional molecules associated with Tam resistance, including those related to ESR1 along with multi-drug resistance molecules.
Mechanisms include ER modifications, alteration of coregulatory function and modification of growth factor signaling pathways. Estrogen inhibits cardiac hypertrophy: Cell cycle regulators associated with resistance to tamoxifen Cyclins, cyclin-dependent kinases CDKs and CDK inhibitors are the major regulators of cell cycle progression 3.
PI3K is commonly activated in breast cancer cells by growth factor receptor tyrosine kinases or G-protein-coupled receptors. Acquired resistance to the antiestrogen tamoxifen constitutes a major clinical challenge in breast cancer therapy.
