Background: CDC25C, belonging to the Cdc25 phosphatase family, plays a major role in cell cycle control, impacting on DNA repair and apoptosis. It has been shown that poor prognosis/copy number high Luminal A breast cancers (BCs) are enriched for the Aurora kinase pathway including CDC25C leading to CDK1 activation (Ciriello et al, Breast Cancer Research Treatment, 2013:409). This study examined the associations of CDC25C with clinicopathological and molecular features in BCs including the low grade ER positive cohort.
Methodology: CDC25C mRNA expression was studied in the METABRIC BC cohort (n=1980) and externally validated using online expression datasets [bc-GenExMiner v4.0]. CDC25C protein expression level was assessed immunohistochemically on a large annotated series of BC (n= 1330) and correlations made with clinicopathological parameters and patient outcome.
Results: High CDC25C expression was significantly associated with poor prognostic factors including high grade, large tumour size, medullary like tumours, poorer NPI, ER-/PR- Her2+ status (p
