Summary of "SND1 expression in breast cancer tumors is associated with poor prognosis."

Staphylococcal nuclease domain-containing 1 (SND1) expression is crucial for breast cancer metastasis; however, the clinical implications of SND1 expression in breast cancer remain unclear. This study investigated the relationship of SND1 protein expression both with metastasis and the prognoses of 144 breast cancer patients over a 10-year follow-up. Chi-square tests revealed that the percentages of positive SND1 expression in breast cancer tumors were significantly associated with larger tumor size (>2 cm, P = 0.043), higher clinical TNM stage (P = 0.003), and positive lymph node metastasis (P = 0.001). Breast cancer patients with positive SND1 expression had a significantly shorter overall survival and disease-free survival than those with negative SND1 expression (P < 0.01). Multiple Cox regression analysis indicated that SND1 expression is an independent risk factor for shorter disease-free survival (hazard ratio = 1.97, P = 0.014). The percentages of SND1 expression in metastatic breast cancers were significantly higher than that in primary tumors in 30 patients with advanced breast cancer (P = 0.016). Therefore, SND1 protein expression is significantly associated with breast cancer metastasis and may serve as a biomarker for prognosis of breast cancer patients.

AR negative triple negative or "quadruple negative" breast cancers in African American women have an enriched basal and immune signature.

There is increasing evidence that Androgen Receptor (AR) expression has prognostic usefulness in Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), where tumors that lack AR expression are considered "Quadruple ne...

SND1 acts as an anti-apoptotic factor via regulating the expression of lncRNA UCA1 in hepatocellular carcinoma.

Multifunctional SND1 (staphylococcal nuclease and tudor domain containing 1) protein is reportedly associated with different types of RNA molecules, including mRNA, miRNA, pre-miRNA, and dsRNA. SND1 h...

ZNF326 promotes a malignant phenotype of breast cancer by interacting with DBC1.

The biological role and underlying mechanism of action of zinc-finger protein 326 (ZNF326) in malignant tumors, including breast cancer, are still not clear. In this study, we detected high expression...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.

Tumors or cancer of the human BREAST.

Tumors or cancer found specifically in one human BREAST, but not in both.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
