      Measles virus is the causative agent of measles, a major cause of child mortality in developing countries. Two majorproteins, coded by the viral genome, are nucleocapsid protein (N) and phosphoprotein (P). The N protein protects the viralgenomic RNA and forms ribonucleoprotein complex (RNP) together with P protein. MeV-P protein recruits the largeprotein (L), i.e. viral RNA-depended RNA polymerase (RdRp), to ensure viral replication in host cell. Apoptogenicproperties of N protein of Edmonston vaccine strain have been established in our lab previously. We investigated the role ofMeV-P protein of Edmonston vaccine strain as modulator of apoptosis in cervical cancer cell line (HeLa) and found thatMeV-P protein is anti-apoptotic and enhances cell proliferation. Measles virus is considered to be innately oncotropic virus.However, the anti-apoptotic property of MeV-P protein raises important concerns while adopting this virus as an anti-cancertherapeutic tool.

      Telomerase is a specialized enzyme which maintains telomere length at the extreme end of the chromosome.Over 90% of all cases of cancer show high expression of telomerase while in normal cells, its expression isextremely low or undetectable. Detection of telomerase activity in a wide range of breast cancer makestelomerase an interesting target for diagnosis and therapy. In this review, we have aimed to describe telomeraseas a therapeutic and accurate diagnostic target in breast cancer. Telomerase performs many extracurricularactivities apart from maintaining telomere length; here, we have also tried to address its role in epithelialmesenchymaltransition (EMT) of breast cancer progression.
