Glutamate dehydrogenase (GLUD1) expression in breast cancer (2018)
Journal Article
Craze, M. L., El-Ansari, R., Aleskandarany, M. A., Cheng, K. W., Al-Farsi, L., Masisi, B., …Green, A. R. (2018). Glutamate dehydrogenase (GLUD1) expression in breast cancer. Breast Cancer Research and Treatment,

Dysregulated cellular metabolism is regarded as one of the hallmarks of cancer with some tumours utilising the glutamine metabolism pathway for their sustained proliferation and survival. Glutamate dehydrogenase (GLUD1) is a key enzyme in glutaminoly... Read More

MYC regulation of Glutamine-Proline regulatory axis is key in Luminal B breast cancer (2017)
Journal Article
Craze, M. L., Cheung, H., Jewa, N., Coimbra, N. D., Soria, D., El-Ansari, R., …Green, A. R. (in press). MYC regulation of Glutamine-Proline regulatory axis is key in Luminal B breast cancer. British Journal of Cancer, doi:10.1038/bjc.2017.387

Background: Altered cellular metabolism is a hallmark of cancer and some are reliant on Glutamine for sustained proliferation and survival. We hypothesise that the Glutamine-Proline regulatory axis has a key role in Breast cancer (BC) in the highly p... Read More

Altered glutamine metabolism in breast cancer: subtype dependencies and alternative adaptations (2017)
Journal Article
El Ansari, R., McIntyre, A., Craze, M. L., Ellis, I. O., Rakha, E. A., & Green, A. R. (in press). Altered glutamine metabolism in breast cancer: subtype dependencies and alternative adaptations. Histopathology, doi:10.1111/his.13334

Cancer cells must alter their metabolism in order to satisfy the demands of necessary energy and cellular building blocks. These metabolic alterations are mediated by many oncogenic changes that affect cellular signalling pathways, which result in su... Read More

FOXP1 expression correlates with better prognosis in invasive breast cancer including the ER-positive luminal subtype (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Joseph, C., Craze, M. L., Nolan, C., Diez-Rodriguez, M., Green, A. R., Rakha, E., …Mukherjee, A. (2017). FOXP1 expression correlates with better prognosis in invasive breast cancer including the ER-positive luminal subtype

Background: Fork head box P1 (FOXP1) is a FOX family transcription factor influencing ERα;-regulated transcription by interaction with the ERα; related pioneer factor FOXA1. Altered FOXP1 expression is seen in breast and prostate cancers. This study... Read More

Phenotypic characterization of breast cancer: the role of CDC42 (2017)
Journal Article
Chrysanthou, E., Gorringe, K. L., Joseph, C., Craze, M. L., Nolan, C. C., Diez-Rodriguez, M., …Mukherjee, A. (2017). Phenotypic characterization of breast cancer: the role of CDC42. Breast Cancer Research and Treatment, 164(2), doi:10.1007/s10549-017-4267-8

Purpose: The molecular landscape of breast cancer (BC), especially of the Luminal A subtype, remains to be fully delineated. Transcriptomic data shows that Luminal A tumours are enriched for aberrant expression of genes in the cell division control 4... Read More
