Abstract: ABSTRACT: Prognostic gene signatures like the wound and hypoxia signature differ by assumptions of cellular growth. Although gene signatures show little overlap, they also track within the group of luminal breast tumours those with a high proliferation and poor prognosis. Oxidative stress is another assumption of cellular growth. It affects several pathological conditions through its influence on the regulation of protein kinases and signal transduction pathways. A comprehensive set of 62 core genes from cultured oestrogen- and oestrogen receptor-deprived epithelial breast cancer cells is responsive to three forms of oxidative stress. Evidence is presented that oxidative stress involves the development of an aggressive subset of primary oestrogen receptor-positive breast tumours.
