Cancer Biology & Therapy: Silencing of lactotransferrin expression by methylation in prostate cancer progression

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,, &


Background: Cancer cells gain selection advantages by the coordinated silencing of protective and by the activation of cell proliferation/cell survival genes. Evaluations of epithelial cell transcriptome of benign and malignant prostate glands by laser capture microdissection (LCM) identified Lactotransferrin (LTF) as the most significantly downregulated gene in prostate cancer (CaP) cells (P

Since 2004, UT Health San Antonio, Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute’s (Greehey CCRI) mission has been to advance scientific knowledge relevant to childhood cancer, contribute to understanding its causes, and accelerate the translation of knowledge into novel therapies. Greehey CCRI strives to have a national and global impact on childhood cancer by discovering, developing, and disseminating new scientific knowledge. Our mission consists of three key areas — research, clinical, and education.
