Prostate Cancer Cell Extracellular Vesicles Increase Mineralization of Bone Osteoblast Precursor Cells in an In Vitro Model

Using osteoblasts as a model system, scientists observed that prostate cancer cells and their conditioned medium could stimulate and increase mineralisation and osteoblasts’ differentiation.

A Cyclometalated IrIII Complex Conjugated to a Coumarin Derivative Is a Potent Photodynamic Agent against Prostate Differentiated and Tumorigenic Cancer Stem Cells

The authors showed. using DU145 tumor cells, taken as the model of hormone‐refractory and aggressive prostate cancer cells resistant to conventional antineoplastic drugs, that the photoactivated 3 very efficiently eliminated both prostate bulk, differentiated and prostate, hardly treatable cancer stem cells simultaneously and with a similar efficiency.

Synthesis and Evaluation of Tumor-Homing Peptides for Targeting Prostate Cancer

Researchers determined which prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-binding peptide among peptides 563, 562 and 9-mer, showed the highest selectivity towards PSMA using 22Rv1 prostate cancer cells, a cell line with moderate PSMA levels.

PRMT5: A Putative Oncogene and Therapeutic Target in Prostate Cancer

The authors focus on recent progress made in prostate cancer, including the role of protein arginine methyltransferase 5 (PRMT5) in the androgen receptor expression and signaling and DNA damage response, particularly DNA double-strand break repair.

Targeting KDM1B-Dependent miR-215-AR-AGR2-Axis Promotes Sensitivity to Enzalutamide-Resistant Prostate Cancer

Downregulation of miR-215 was correlated with overexpression of KDM1B in enzalutamide-resistant prostate cancer cells, which promoted AR-dependent AGR2 transcription and regulated the sensitivity to next generation AR-targeted therapy.

Aberrant CREB1 Activation in Prostate Cancer Disrupts Normal Prostate Luminal Cell Differentiation

Researchers discovered that CREB1 played a central role in maintaining new luminal cell survival and that oncogenesis dramatically changed the CREB1-induced transcriptome. CREB1 was active in luminal cells, but not basal cells.
