Tumoral FOXP3 has potential oncogenic function in conjunction with the p53 tumor suppressor protein and infiltrated Tregs in human breast carcinomas.


FOXP3 is a transcription factor and a well-known hallmark of immune suppressive T regulatory cells. Recent studies indicate that in tumor cells, FOXP3 plays an important role in tumor development in addition to its well-established Treg function in the immune system. We investigated tumoral FOXP3 expression in breast carcinoma, and the relationships between… (More)
