Summary of "Cyclin E Overexpression in Human Mammary Epithelial Cells Promotes Epithelial Cancer-Specific Copy Number Alterations."

Cyclin E, a key cell cycle regulatory protein, has been linked to oncogenesis when dysregulated. We have previously shown that overexpression of cyclin E causes replication stress, leading to failure to complete replication at specific chromosomal loci during S phase of the cell cycle. This in turn promotes chromosomal damage during anaphase. Here we show that non-transformed human mammary epithelial cell clones that survive such aberrant mitoses have a specific and reproducible pattern of chromosomal Copy Number Alterations (CNAs) that we have characterized and termed the cyclin E CNA signature. Using a number of computational approaches, we show that this signature resembles one specific CNA pattern enriched in differentiated epithelial-like tumors of the breast and ovary. Analysis of the CNA profile of these clones provides a potential mechanism for cyclin E-mediated oncogenesis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cell adhesion molecule that is expressed on the membranes of nearly all EPITHELIAL CELLS, especially at the junctions between intestinal epithelial cells and intraepithelial LYMPHOCYTES. It also is expressed on the surface of ADENOCARCINOMA and epithelial tumor cells. It may function in the MUCOSA through homophilic interactions to provide a barrier against infection. It also regulates the proliferation and differentiation of EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS.

Carcinoma characterized by bands or cylinders of hyalinized or mucinous stroma separating or surrounded by nests or cords of small epithelial cells. When the cylinders occur within masses of epithelial cells, they give the tissue a perforated, sievelike, or cribriform appearance. Such tumors occur in the mammary glands, the mucous glands of the upper and lower respiratory tract, and the salivary glands. They are malignant but slow-growing, and tend to spread locally via the nerves. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Epithelial cells that line the PULMONARY ALVEOLI.

Neoplasms composed of glandular tissue, an aggregation of epithelial cells that elaborate secretions, and of any type of epithelium itself. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in the various glands or in epithelial tissue.

A glandular epithelial cell or a unicellular gland. Goblet cells secrete MUCUS. They are scattered in the epithelial linings of many organs, especially the SMALL INTESTINE and the RESPIRATORY TRACT.
