miR-205 can be responsible for breast cancer
Date:12/21/2012

Over the past couple of years research into miRNAs has become increasingly diversified and attracted a great number of research articles across genetics and medicine. This should hardly come as a surprise to any scientist in the field, especially since it has become clear that miRNAs, a recently discovered class of non-coding RNAS, are represented in nearly all cellular functions and molecular pathways. A growing list of reports demonstrates that microRNAs play a critical role in cancer initiation and progression, and that miRNA alterations are ubiquitous in human cancers. In fact, several studies have shown that miRNAs can act either as tumor suppressors or as oncogenes, and that measurement of miRNA expression in malignancies may have diagnostic implications or otherwise lead to novel treatments of breast cancer.

In the article "Mir-205 modulates acinar size and morphology of transformed breast epithelial cells" which will be released later this week in OncomiRs an open access journal published by Versita, molecular biologists from CEA Saclay and Universit Paris-Sud, led by Prof. Annick Harel-Bellan, studied the microRNAs expression potentially responsible for the abnormal acini formation of breast cancer cells. They observed that the overexpression of the miR-205 influences the morphology of acini, linking this miRNA to breast epithelial cell transformation.

A genome-wide microRNA expression screen comparing non-transformed and tumorigenic MCF10A cell lines identified miR-205 as a potential modifier of acinus size. Forced expression of miR-205 in non-transformed MCF10A cells increased the size of acini, whereas miR-205 antisense oligonucleotides restored a normal morphology. MiR-205 did not modify cell proliferation, but rather inhibited cell death by apoptosis. Moreover, miR-205 targets ZEB1, an inhibitor of E-cadherin. Downregulating E-cadherin restored normal acinar morphology in miR-205 expressing cells, consistent with E-cadh
