Dystroglycan function is a novel determinant of tumor growth and behavior in prostate cancer.
BACKGROUND: Dystroglycan is a ubiquitously expressed cell adhesion molecule frequently found to be altered or reduced in adenocarcinomas, however the mechanisms or consequences of dystroglycan loss have not been studied extensively. METHODS: We examined the consequence of overexpression or RNAi depletion of dystroglycan on properties of in vitro growth migration and invasion of LNCaP, PC3, and DU145 prostate cancer cell lines. RESULTS: Using LNCaP cells we observed cell density-dependent chan...Expand abstract
