The article focuses on the molecular biological aspects of breast tumor progression. It stresses that advances in molecular genetics and biology have offered significant informations on tumor progression. It mentions the significant roles of the tumor microenvironment process in the prognosis of the disease. It further discusses the roles of stromal-epithelial and myoepithelial cells interactions.

    Mutations of p53 in cancer can result in a gain of function associated with tumour progression and metastasis. We show that inducible expression of several p53 'hotspot' mutants promote a range of centrosome abnormalities, including centrosome amplification, increased centrosome size and loss of...
