This finding suggests that the genetic background of an individual may influence tumorigenesis and outcome. Transcriptomic analysis has been applied to experimental mouse mammary tumors in different inbred mouse strains exhibiting different rates of metastasis formation and has revealed strain-specific tumor expression profile signatures [14]. These findings demonstrate that indeed the genetic background may predispose an individual to the development of breast cancer and its progression. The assessment of germ line DNA polymorphisms predicting metastasis risk would offer technical advantages over expression profiling on the tumor itself.
