Outline of research interests:
1. The role of TAP (Tocopherol Associated Protein) in hormonal carcinogenesis of breast cancer.
- TAP is a Vitamin E binding protein with tumor suppressor-like function. An antibody to TAP was produced in-house in Dr. Yeh’s lab.
- In the past a few years, we have shown that TAP is preferentially expressed in normal/benign breast luminal epithelial cells, similar to the pattern of expression of the estrogen receptor (ER), but its expression is down regulated in almost half (47%) of ER/PR positive breast carcinomas. This finding is not only the first report on TAP status in breast carcinomas, it is also unique, as other oncogenes or suppressor genes, such as p53 or Her2/neu, are altered mostly in ER/PR negative breast carcinomas.
- Currently, we are trying to determine if there is an association between TAP expression and clinical outcome. This is being performed using three approaches:
- Project 1: TAP expression in breast cancers of patients with stage IV disease and currently on Aromatase Inhibitor treatment alone. This project is in the data analysis stage.
- Project 2: Compare TAP expression status with the Oncotype score (derived by Oncotype using their proprietary analysis) in samples of primary tumors to determine if TAP has a similar or better predictive value for recurrence of disease. An abstract was submitted for presentation at the 2010 USCAP meeting.
- Project 3: TAP as a prognostic factor in a breast cancer cohort with 400 patients followed up for 10 years. This project is going on.
2. Steroid receptors in hormonal carcinogenesis of breast cancer.
- Breast cancer is a hormone-related cancer in which ER and PR status is a major determinant of clinical treatment. Although AR is strongly expressed in a high percentage of breast carcinomas, its role in breast carcinogenesis is not clear.
- Using dual immunohistochemical staining, we have found that AR is often co-expressed with ER in normal/benign breast luminal epithelial cells. This explains that breast carcinomas are mostly positive for both ER and AR.
- By immunohistochemical staining of consecutive sections from breast cancer blocks, we found that signaling proteins downstream of AR, such as PSA and GCDFP, are either negative or expressed in a pattern unrelated to AR expression in normal/benign breast luminal epithelial cells, indicating that AR is not functional in these cells.
- These findings may help to some degree to resolve the long-term debate regarding whether AR should be a target in the hormonal treatment of breast cancer.
- One abstract is submitted for presentation at the 2010 USCAP meeting, and one paper is in preparation.
