Development of resistance to therapy continues to be a serious clinical problem in breast cancer management. Cancer stem/progenitor cells have been shown to play roles in resistance to chemo‐ and radiotherapy. Here, we examined their role in the development of resistance to the oestrogen receptor antagonist tamoxifen. Tamoxifen‐resistant cells were enriched(More)
Angiotensin II (Ang-II) regulates a variety of cellular functions including cortisol secretion. In the present report, we demonstrate that Ang-II activates phospholipase D (PLD) in zona fasciculata (ZF) cells of bovine adrenal glands, and that this effect is associated to the stimulation of cortisol secretion by this hormone. PLD activation was dependent(More)
The heterogeneous nature of breast cancer is a result of intrinsic tumor complexity and also of the tumor microenvironment, which is known to be hypoxic. We found that hypoxia expands different breast stem/progenitor cell populations (cells with increased aldehyde dehydrogenase activity (Aldefluor+), high mammosphere formation capacity and CD44+CD24-/low(More)
