ible spongiform encephalopathy.

Dr. Hoover's group suggests that "cervidized transgenic mice substantially recapitulate the clinical, neuropathologic, and PrPRES tropism and transmission patterns reported in the native cervid species and [that] studies in Tg[CerPrP] mice can provide additional insights into the trafficking, shedding, and lateral transmission of [chronic wasting disease] prions."

New Target May Inhibit Metastatic Breast Cancer

Researchers led by Dr. Yves St-Pierre at INRS-Institut Armand-Frappier, Qubec, Canada implicate galectin-7 as a breast cancer differentiation marker. They report their data in the May 2010 issue of The American Journal of Pathology.

Breast cancer is the second-most common type of non-skin cancer and the fifth-most common cause of cancer death world-wide. Breast cancer is 100-times more common in women than in men.

The protein galectin-7, which leads to cell death, is expressed in and plays a metastatic role in various types of cancer. To determine the role of galectin-7 in breast cancer, Demers et al investigated galectin-7 expression and function in breast cancer cells. Galectin-7 was highly expressed in two pre-clinical models of breast cancer, and high galectin-7 expression levels increased the metastatic potential of these tumor cells. In humans, high expression levels of galectin-7 were restricted to high-grade tumors and were associated with metastasis. Taken together, these data implicate galectin-7 as both a breast cancer differentiation marker and a potential therapeutic target for metastatic breast cancer.

Dr. St.-Pierre and colleagues "believe that lower survival rates and increased metastases in mice injected with breast cancer cells overexpressing galectin
