MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small noncoding RNAs that control gene expression by targeting mRNAs and triggering either translation repression or RNA degradation. Their aberrant expression may be involved in human diseases, including cancer. Indeed, miRNA aberrant expression has been previously found in human chronic lymphocytic leukemias, where miRNA(More)
OBJECTIVE Despite the clinical similarities triple-negative and basal-like breast cancer are not synonymous. Indeed, not all basal-like cancers are negative for estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor and HER2 expression while triple-negative also encompasses other cancer types. P53 protein appears heterogeneously expressed in triple-negative breast(More)
BACKGROUND in primary breast cancers dichotomic classification of E-cadherin expression, according to an arbitrary cutoff, may be inadequate and lead to loss of prognostic significance or contrasting prognostic indications. We aimed to assess the prognostic value of high and low E-cadherin levels in a consecutive case series (204 cases) of unilateral(More)
Specific steroid antibodies, by the immunofluorescence technique, regularly reveal fluorescent centrioles and cilia-bearing basal bodies in target and nontarget cells. Although the precise identity of the immunoreactive steroid substance has not yet been established, it seems noteworthy that exogenous steroids can be vitally concentrated by centrioles,(More)
