Transcriptome analysis of breast cancer cells treated with adipocyte exosomes. a Heat map showed differentially expressed genes in adipocyte exosome-treated MCF7 and control MCF7. be Upregulation of cancer phenotype-associated genes in adipocyte exosome-treated MCF7. b Genes associated with cell proliferation. c Genes associated with programmed cell death. d Genes associated with migration. e Genes associated with angiogenesis. f Top 20 signaling pathways enriched in adipocyte exosome-treated MCF7. gj qRT-PCR confirmed the increased expression of selected genes associated with cell cycle (G, CCND1, CCND3), cell proliferation (h, MET, MYC), migration (i, TGFB1, MMP9), and angiogenesis (j, VEGFA, HIF1A)
