Marietta Vet Clinic, veterinarian Julian Peckich DVM and staff have announced an October Mammary Cancer Awareness Program to Help Aid in Prevention. Marietta, GA (PRWEB) September 30, 2014 Breast Cancer doesn't just happen in people per Marietta Vet Clinic and veterinarian, Julian Peckich DVM. Dogs and cats are like people. That's why the animal clinic plans on informing owners of a tip than can reduce the chances of malignant mammary tumors in their female dogs and cats. Spaying...

Salk scientists find two key proteins that regulate the growth of mammary stem cells and could contribute to breast cancer By carefully controlling the levels of two proteins, researchers at the Salk Institute have discovered how to keep mammary stem cells—those that can form breast tissue—alive and functioning in the lab. The new ability to propagate mammary stem cells is allowing them to study both breast development and the formation of breast cancers. "What we've shown is that...

Findings and Significance: During breast-tissue development, a transcription factor called SLUG plays a role in regulating stem cell function and determines whether breast cells will mature into luminal or basal cells. Studying factors, such as SLUG, that regulate stem-cell activity and breast-cell identity are important for understanding how breast tumors arise and develop into different subtypes. Ultimately, this knowledge may help the development of novel therapies targeted to specific...

American River Nutrition, Inc. is offering DeltaGold®, an annatto-tocotrienol Vitamin E supplement associated with breast health in animal studies, through its new website. Hadley, MA (PRWEB) August 13, 2013 In March of 2013, the journal Carcinogenesis published a study concluding that Vitamin E tocotrienols may reduce tumor size and development. The paper titled “Effect of annatto-tocotrienols supplementation on the development of mammary tumors in HER-2/neu transgenic mice”...

Why do so many mothers have difficulty making enough milk to breastfeed? A new study by scientists at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the University of California Davis adds to their previous research implicating insulin's role in lactation success. The study is the first to describe how the human mammary gland becomes highly sensitive to insulin during lactation. It is also the first study to get an accurate picture of how specific genes are switched on in the human...

Being pregnant while young is known to protect a women against breast cancer. But why? Research in BioMed Central's open access journal Breast Cancer Research finds that Wnt/Notch signalling ratio is decreased in the breast tissue of mice which have given birth, compared to virgin mice of the same age. Early pregnancy is protective against breast cancer in humans and in rodents. In humans having a child before the age of 20 decreases risk of breast cancer by half. Using microarray analysis...

Stem cells are different from all other cells in our body because they retain the remarkable genetic plasticity to self-renew indefinitely as well as develop into cell types with more specialized functions. However, this remarkable self-renewal capacity comes with a price, as stem cells can become seeds of cancer. Identifying genetic programs that maintain self-renewing capabilities therefore is a vital step in understanding the errors that derail a normal stem cell, sending it on a path to...

Scientists at The University of Manchester have identified how cells know which way up they need to be. The discovery could help in the fight against cancer because in the early stages of the disease the cells become disorganized. Professor Charles Streuli and Dr Nasreen Akhtar of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell-Matrix Research have conducted new research that leads to a better understanding of cell polarity. Properly organized tissues are vital to maintaining functional organs and a...

Reverting Breast Cancer Cells By Giving Them A Squeeze
2012-12-17 16:27:37

University of California - Berkeley Compression restores normal growth in malignant cells Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have put the squeeze – literally – on malignant mammary cells to guide them back into a normal growth pattern. The findings, to be presented Monday, Dec. 17, at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology in San Francisco, show for the first time that mechanical forces...

Pituitary Hormone "Prolactin" Outside Of Brain Has Implications For Breast Cancer
2012-10-01 07:53:51

The hormone prolactin is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain and then travels via the bloodstream to cells throughout the body, where it exerts multiple reproductive and metabolic effects, most notably on the breast where it is the master regulator of lactation. In recent years researchers have found that prolactin is also produced by some tissues outside the brain, however little is known about the functions of extra-pituitary prolactin or how its production is regulated in these...

The Common House Mouse (Mus musculus), is the most numerous species of the genus Mus. It is the most common and populous mammalian species on earth, besides humans. House mice almost always live in close proximity to humans. Laboratory mice belong to strains of house mice and are some of the most important model organisms in biology and medicine. They are by far the most commonly used laboratory mammal. House mice are light brown to black, with short hair and a light belly. The ears and...
