Oxidative stress plays a key role in breast carcinogenesis. To investigate whether normal and malignant breast epithelial cells differ in their responses to oxidative stress, we examined the global gene expression profiles of three cell types, representing cancer progression from a normal to a malignant stage, under oxidative stress. Normal human mammary epithelial cells (HMECs), an immortalized cell line (HMLER-1), and a tumorigenic cell line (HMLER-5) were exposed to increased levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by treatment with glucose oxidase. Functional analysis of the metabolic pathways enriched with differentially expressed genes demonstrated that normal and malignant breast epithelial cells diverge substantially in their response to oxidative stress. Whereas normal cells exhibit the up-regulation of antioxidant mechanisms, cancer cells are unresponsive to the ROS insult. However, the gene expression response of normal HMECs under oxidative stress is comparable to that of the malignant cells under normal conditions, indicating that altered redox status is persistent in breast cancer cells, which makes them resistant to increased generation of ROS. We discuss some of the possible adaptation mechanisms of breast cancer cells under persistent oxidative stress that differentiate them from normal mammary epithelial cells as regards the response to acute oxidative stress.
