Can Metastasis of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Be Thwarted? | Breast Cancer News | Scoop.it

"Researchers at the Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in New York and colleagues have identified a microRNA (miRNA), the small RNA molecules that regulate gene expression, called miR-708 that is repressed in metastatic breast cancer. Expression of the miRNA in breast cancer mouse models specifically blocked metastasis, but did not affect primary tumor growth. The study shows that miR-708 normally functions as a metastatic tumor inhibitor."
