This study describes the various roles adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSCs) play in a breast tumour environment. The ADSC-derived secreted factors inhibit breast tumour cell growth aspects, whereas the tumour-derived secreted factors transform ADSCs into tumour-associated fibroblasts (TAFs). Additionally, it highlights the role of Wnt antagonist sFRP4 and its peptides to further influence the activity of ADSC-derived secreted factors, to downregulate the transformation of ADSCs into TAFs, and in upregulating the adipogenic differentiation of ADSCs.
