BACKGROUND To investigate the expression status of PIWIL2 and piR-932 in breast cancer stem cells and the role they could play in tumor cell growth and metastasis through Latexin. METHODS CD44(+)/CD24(-) tumor cells (CSC) from clinical specimens were sorted using flow cytometry. PIWIL2 expression status was detected in CSC cells by microarray analysis and 1086 breast cancer specimens by Western blot and immunohistochemistry staining. piR-932 expression was also detected in CSC cells by piRNA… CONTINUE READING
