Mammary tumors are a major health threat to women and female dogs. In both, metastasis of the primary tumor to distant organs is the most common cause of tumor-related death. Nevertheless, the molecular mechanisms of tumor metastasis are far from being understood, and it is still unknown why some human and canine carcinomas metastasize and others do not. Using 2D-DIGE and MALDITOF-MS we identified 21 proteins with significant changes (fold change >1.5; p < 0.05) in protein expression between metastasizing (n ) 6) and nonmetastasizing (n ) 6) canine mammary carcinomas. Quantitative RT-PCR was used to identify transcriptional or post-transcriptional regulation of protein expression. Up-regulated proteins in metastatic carcinomas included proliferating cell nuclear antigen, ferritin light chain, bomapin, tropomyosin 3, thioredoxin-containing domain C5, adenosin, ornithine aminotransferase, coronin 1A, RAN-binding protein 1,3-phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase, and eukaryotic translation elongation factor 1. Down-regulated proteins in metastatic carcinomas included calretinin, myosin, light chain 2, peroxiredoxin 6, maspin, ibrinogen beta chain, vinculin, isocitrate dehydrogenase 1, tropomyosin 1, annexin A5, and Rho GTPase activating protein 1. Interestingly, 19 of these 21 proteins have been described with a malignancy-associated expression in human breast cancer and other human cancer types before. Further investigations are now necessary to test whether these markers are of prognostic value for canine mammary carcinomas and whether their expression is directly involved in canine mammary carcinogenesis or represent solely a secondary reactive phenotype.

Mammary gland tumors are a major threat to women and female dogs. In both species, metastasis of the primary tumor to distant organs is the most common cause of tumor-related death in affected individuals.1-3 Nevertheless, the molecular mechanisms of mammary tumor metastasis are far from being understood, and it is still enigmatic why some mammary carcinomas metastasize and others do not. Several explorative proteome studies therefore have tried to uncover protein expression patterns associated with metastasis in human breast cancer. By this approach, the expression of some relevant proteins could be related with a distinctively aggressive behavior of tumor cells.3,4 For instance, tropomyosin (TPM) 1 and 3 and the mammary serine protease inhibitor (maspin) have been identified to be differentially expressed in malignant human breast cancer by proteome analyses.2,3,5-9

Canine mammary tumors (CMTs) have repeatedly been proposed as a model for human breast cancer, and there are several overlaps in malignancy-associated gene expression profiles between the two.10-23 However, other important features of human breast cancer carcinogenesis including malignancy-associated BRCA mutations and the impact of steroid receptor expression on prognosis differ widely between the human and CMTs.24,25 One major benefit of dogs as cancer models is the spontaneous CMT development with a compressed course of cancer progression when compared to humans but a longer therapeutic window when compared to rodent models.10,12 A complete characterization of the molecular mechanisms of the CMT carcinogenesis would therefore contribute to both understanding of this tumor in dogs and the characterization of a valuable comparative model for the human disease. The diagnostic and prognostic differentiation of both malignant human and CMTs with and without potential for metastatic spread to distant organs is difficult before metastases are large enough to be visualized.26-29 In canines, histological features of invasion at the tumor edges or metastases to the regional lymph nodes are the most important prognostic factors

and a similar association between prognosis and ferritin expression seems to exist in canine mammary tumors.Comparative Proteomics of Canine Mammary Tumors tions. TPM1 is a tumor suppressor inducing anoikis (detachment-induced apoptosis) in breast cancer cells. was transcriptionally down-regulated in LN+ tumors. TPM3 overexpression activates epithelial-mesenchymal transition in hepatocellular carcinomas and contributes to tumor cell dissemination in ERBB2-positive breast cancer. TXNDC5 is located in the endoplasmic reticulum and known to inhibit apoptosis by chaperone activity on hypoxia-induced antiapoptotic molecules. radical-inducing environment. rapid growth of tumors induces oxidative stress due to insufficient vascularization.68 Expression of thioredoxins has not been analyzed in canine mammary tumors before. but the differ5. Thus. maspin may indeed be involved in metastatic spread of canine mammary tumors. Coronin1A (CORO1A) is another actin-binding protein that was also transcriptionally up-regulated in LN+ samples. 12.75 In the present study. and this may contribute to the resistance of the metastatic cells to hypoxic stresses. Down-regulation of maspin is associated with malignant behavior and metastatic spread of breast. the two serpins identified in the present study were regulated in opposite directions in LN+ samples. the down-regulation of TPM1 enables neoplastic cells to survive outside their normal microenvironment and thereby supports metastasis.74 Ferritin (FTL) sequesters Fe(II) from Fenton-like reactions in which the spontaneous oxidation to Fe(III) donates single electrons to transform innocuous reactive oxygen species into highly toxic ones. prostate. increased cytoplasmic levels of ADA or treatment with exogenous ADA significantly decrease adhesion and increase invasiveness of human lymphoma cells. and pancreatic cancer.62 Interestingly. analysis of mRNA expression levels in canine mammary tumors at different stages of malignant progression has pointed toward a decreased expression that was. bomapin was up-regulated in LN+ samples.17 According to the results of this study.7. expression levels of peroxiredoxins like PRDX6 have not been described in canine tumors but are upregulated in metastatic human breast and lung cancers. tumor suppression. and extracellular matrix modulation and cell migration. LN+ tumors contained increased protein levels of ferritin. indicating a posttranscriptional up-regulation of this enzyme.65 Furthermore.63 Especially in human breast cancer. Coronins are highly conserved regulators of the actin cytoskeleton and are enriched at the leading edge of migrating cells.8 Surprisingly. the phospholipase A2 activity of peroxiredoxin 6 promotes invasion and metastasis of lung cancer cells.76 Isocitrate dehyrogenase-1 (IDH1) protein.

The increased expression of adenosine deaminase (ADA) in LN+ samples may also contribute to their metastatic spread although the protein is not directly associated with cell-cell adhesion. not significant. Free metal ions are known to contribute to the formation of reactive oxygen species like H2O2 and are supposed to be involved in breast cancer carcinogenesis. while bomapin was up-regulated in LN+ when compared to LN. metastatic cells had a significantly increased expression of thioredoxin domain-containing protein 5 (TXNDC5) when compared to LN. So far it is clear that bomapin expression has a cytoprotective effect against tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFR)-induced cell death. Serin protease inhibitors (Serpins) are proteins with a similar structure and the ability to inhibit serine proteases.
