ANO1 is located within the 11q13 amplicon, one of the most frequently amplified chromosomal regions in human cancer. ANO1 is amplified and highly expressed in breast cancer cell lines and primary tumors.
ANO1 was one of numerous potential early detection biomarkers specific to triple-negative breast cancer in multiple pathways identified.
