A method to induce ferroptosis and to downregulate androgen receptor/androgen receptor splice variant in prostate cancer cells
Prostate cancer (PCa) effects approximately three million men in the United States every year. About 10-20% of the cases of prostate cancer are castrate-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). This form of PCa is highly resistant to what Is known as androgen depletion therapy and is often fatal. All types of PCa are sensitive to androgen receptor signaling...

Establishment of a Prostate Carcinoma Bone Tumor Model in Mice
This technology is a new tumorigenic cell line from the human prostate carcinoma cell line PC-3. These cell lines, known as PC-3/IF, when implanted in the femurs of nude mice, provide a xenograft tumor model of bone metastatic prostate carcinoma. The PC-3/IF cell lines are highly tumorigenic, with tumor cells replacing the marrow cells in the bone...

Establishment of a Metastatic Prostate Carcinoma Tumor Model in Mice
This technology is a new tumorigenic cell line from the human prostate carcinoma cell line PC-3. These cell lines, known as PC-3/PI, are highly tumorigenic when implanted in the prostate of nude mice, providing a xenograft tumor model of prostate carcinoma. In this model, lymph node metastases form from the primary tumor, similar to what occurs in...
