SKOR1 controls breast cancer invasion

Lilian and Sandra identified a new FER kinase substrate called SKOR1 that promotes breast cancer invasion. Results are published in the Journal of Cell Science
(January 2023)


Eline and Thijmen published a new mouse mode for inducible skin and mammary cancer in NEOPLASIA, based on conditional knockout of E-cadherin and p53 through inducible LGR6 expression.
(November 2022)


Eline published data in the Journal of Pathology showing that R-spondin-3 is an oncogenic driver of poorly differentiated invasive breast cancer! A fruitful collaboration with the John Hilkens group @ NKI/AvL.

Id2 underpins Indolent ILC

Them Id2 Boys Max Rätze and Thijs Koorman have figured out (well, at least in part) why ILC is a low grade disease! Work instigated by lab alumnus Robert van de Ven has culminated in a publication in Oncogene.

FER controls the cancer endosome

Check out Sandra Tavares‘ paper in Cell Reports on FER kinase, its DIRECT targets, control over fast endosomal recycling, and predictive value in breast cancer.

uncoupling bundling and stiffness

Thijs Koorman’s LOXL3 paper is out in Oncogene! We show that ductal breast cancer, in contrast to ILC, use Loxl3 to spatially stiffen the ECM for collective invasion.

IDC? ILC? DuctolObular?

Christgen et al. are at it again! Cover art in the Journal of Pathology. E-cadherin expression as a diagnostic standard for ILC. An absolute no-brainer that should be Globally implemented!

The end-all-be-all of ILC histology

OUT NOW! In the context of a special edition on Lobular Breast Cancer in Cancers
(August 2021)

An idc wannabe forming tubules

P-cadherin Switching in ILC is out in Modern Pathology! We co-author on this work, showing that P-cadherin is the molecular determinant of a mixed-appearing histomorphology in ILBCs with tubular elements.
