ROR1 is a glycosylated type I membrane protein that belongs to the ROR subfamily of cell surface receptors that play a role in the control of most basic cellular processes including cell proliferation, differentiation, migration and metabolism (1). Many human breast cancers express the ROR1 protein and high-level expression of ROR1 in breast adenocarcinoma is associated with aggressive disease. Silencing expression of ROR1 in human breast cancer cell lines found to express this protein impaired their growth in vitro and also in immune-deficient mice (2).
