Previous microarray studies on breast cancer identified multiple tumour classes, of which the most prominent, named luminal and basal, differ in expression of the oestrogen receptor alpha gene (ER). We report here the identification of a group of breast tumours with increased androgen signalling and a 'molecular apocrine' gene expression profile. Tumour(More)
Quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) used to detect minor changes in specific mRNA concentrations may be associated with poor reproducibility. Stringent quality control is therefore essential at each step of the protocol, including the PCR procedure. We performed inter-laboratory quality control of quantitative PCR between(More)
Stathmin is a highly conserved cytosolic phosphoprotein that destabilizes microtubules. Stathmin, which has been proposed as a relay protein integrating diverse cell signalling pathways, acts in vitro as a tubulin-sequestering protein, and its activity is dramatically reduced by phosphorylation. Interestingly, stathmin expression and phosphorylation are(More)
