Abstract

Mesenchymal stem cells in tumor microenvironment can influence therapeutic responses in various types of cancers. For triple negative breast cancer, chemotherapy remains the mainstay of standard treatment. Our aim was to investigate the correlation between human adipose-derived stem cells (hAdSCs) and chemoresistance in triple negative breast cancer. Conditioned medium was collected from hAdSCs, which was isolated from breast cancer patients who had had breast mastectomy. The expression of selected CD markers was evaluated by flow cytometry to characterize hAdSCs. By array analyses of the secreted cytokines and chemokines of hAdSCs, we identified CXCL1 that mediated doxorubicin resistance and the expression of ATP-binding cassette transporters ABCG2 in TNBC. By microRNA microarray, the association between hAdSC-mediated doxorubicin resistance in TNBC was also revealed. Conditioned medium collected from hAdSCs elicited doxorubicin resistance and enhanced the expression of ABCG2, which is a transporter responsible for the efflux of doxorubicin. CXCL1 secreted by hAdSCs downregulated miR-106a expression in triple negative breast cancer, and resulted in ABCG2 upregulation and doxorubicin resistance. Our findings suggest that CXCL1 secreted by hAdSCs elicits doxorubicin resistance through miR-106a-mediated ABCG2 upregulation in triple negative breast cancer. These findings provide a better understanding of the importance of adipose-derived stem cells in breast cancer microenvironment regarding to the development of chemoresistance and reveal the potential of discovering novel therapeutic strategies to overcome drug resistance in TNBC.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 10. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 August 2017.
All research outputs
#1,230,633
of 11,553,067 outputs
Outputs from Stem Cell Research & Therapy
#110
of 937 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#47,178
of 264,293 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Stem Cell Research & Therapy
#3
of 49 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,553,067 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 89th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 937 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.3. This one has done well, scoring higher than 87% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 264,293 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 49 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 93% of its contemporaries.
