The Influence of the Host Microenvironment on Breast Cancer Progression:
Investigations Using a Computational Biology Approach

Kerri-Ann Norton, Computer Science Program

Cancer is influenced not only by its intrinsic properties, epigenetic or genetic changes in its cellular properties, but also by the host microenvironment. Without nutrients supplied by the host blood vessels tumors can become hypoxic and die. Other stromal cells, such as macrophages and fibroblasts, can support or antagonize tumor growth by secreting different factors that affect growth, migration, and adhesion. I examine the interplay between breast cancer cells and the surrounding host cells, including blood vessels, macrophages, and fibroblasts, using a computational modeling approach. This approach allows one to examine the individual effects as well as combined effects of stromal cells in a 3D simulated environment and to make predictions as to which targets would be the most successful for cancer therapies.

Myelinating Glia Differentiation is Regulated by the Mechanical Properties of the Extracellular Matrix

Carmen Melendez-Vasquez Hunter College 

The mechanical properties of living tissues have a significant impact on cell differentiation but remain largely unexplored in the context of myelin formation and repair. In the peripheral nervous system (PNS), the extracellular matrix (ECM) incorporates a basal lamina significantly denser than the loosely organized central nervous system (CNS) matrix. Inhibition of non-muscle myosin II (NMII) enhances central but impairs peripheral myelination and NMII has been implicated in cellular responses to changes in the elasticity of the ECM. To directly evaluate whether mechanotransduction plays a role in glial cell differentiation, we cultured Schwann cells (SC) and oligodendrocytes (OL) on matrices of variable elastic modulus, mimicking either their native environment or conditions found in injured tissue. We found that a rigid, lesion-like matrix inhibited branching and differentiation of OL in NMII-dependent manner. By contrast, SC developed normally in both soft and stiffer matrices. Although SC differentiation was not significantly affected by changes in matrix stiffness alone, we found that expression of critical pro-myelinating transcription factors was potentiated on rigid matrices at high laminin concentration. These findings are relevant to the design of biomaterials to promote healing and regeneration in both CNS and PNS, via transplantation of glial progenitors or the implantation of tissue scaffolds
