The lack of in vitro prostate cancer models that recapitulate the diversity of human prostate cancer has hampered progress in understanding disease pathogenesis and therapy response. Using a 3D organoid system, we report success in long-term culture of prostate cancer from biopsy specimens and circulating tumor cells. The first seven fully characterized organoid lines recapitulate the molecular diversity of prostate cancer subtypes, including TMPRSS2-ERG fusion, SPOP mutation, SPINK1 overexpress...

Radial glial progenitors play pivotal roles in the development and patterning of the spinal cord, and their fate is controlled by Notch signaling. How Notch is shaped to regulate their crucial transition from expansion toward differentiation remains, however, unknown. miR-132 in the developing zebrafish dampens Notch signaling via a cascade involving the transcriptional corepressor Ctbp2 and the Notch suppressor Sirt1. At early embryonic stages, high Ctbp2 levels sustain Notch signaling and radi...

Prostate epithelia contain basal, luminal and neuroendocrine cells. Here the authors show that overexpression of the Notch intracellular domain in the mouse prostate promotes proliferation and suppresses anoikis of prostate luminal epithelial cells.

In their Review, Marignol and colleagues discuss the comprehensive knowledge of the biology of prostate cancer, which is deeply associated with hypoxia and notch signalling (Marignol, L., Rivera-Figueroa, K., Lynch, T. & Hollywood, D. Hypoxia, notch signalling, and prostate cancer. Nat. Rev. Urol. 10, 405–413; 2013).1 On this topic, an additional three issues related to targeted therapy should be discussed based on recent evidence: the role of tumour angiogenesis, notch signalling inhibition (by...

Cancer stem cells (CSC) isolated from multiple tumor types differentiate in vivo and in vitro when cultured in serum; however, the factors responsible for their differentiation have not yet been identified. The first aim of the present study was to identify CD133high/CD44high DU145 prostate CSCs and compare their profiles with non-CSCs as bulk counterparts of the population. Subsequently, the two populations continued to be three-dimensional multicellular spheroids. Differentiation was then inve...

INTRODUCTION By regulating cell fate, proliferation, and survival, Notch pathway signaling provides critical input into differentiation, organization, and function of multiple tissues. Notch signaling is also becoming an increasingly recognized feature in malignancy, including prostate cancer, where it may play oncogenic or tumor suppressive roles.

The Jagged1, a Notch signaling pathway ligand, had been shown to have a positive correlation with prostate cancer development. Our study for Jagged1 expression in 218 prostate cancer tissue samples also supports this conclusion.However,thedetailedmolecularmechanismofJagged1inpromotingtheprogressionofprostatecancer is still unclear. Through cell proliferation examination, androgen receptor (AR) was found to promote the oncogenic function of Jagged1 to enhance the cell proliferation rate by compar...

Prostate cancer, the second most common malignancy in men, is characterized by high heterogeneity that poses several therapeutic challenges. Epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a dynamic, reversible cellular process which is essential in normal embryonic morphogenesis and wound healing. However, the cellular changes that are induced by EMT suggest that it may also play a central role in tumor progression, invasion, metastasis, and resistance to current therapeutic options. These changes i...
Abstract Uveal melanoma (UM), as the most common primary intraocular carcinoma, is a relatively rare but lethal tumor. Upregulated eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E family member 2 (EIF4E2) promotes the progression of multiple human carcinomas. However, its role remains unclear in UM. To identify the prognostic value of EIF4E2 in UM, we downloaded RNA-sequencing data along with clinical information from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) datasets. EIF4E2 m...
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men in the United States. The androgen receptor (AR) antagonist enzalutamide is an FDA-approved drug for treatment of patients with late-stage prostate cancer and is currently under clinical study for early-stage prostate cancer treatment. After a short positive response period to enzalutamide, tumors will develop drug resistance. In these studies, we uncovered that NOTCH signaling and DNA methylation are a deregulated in enzaluta...
Telomeric repeat binding factor 1 (TERF1) has been identified as a tumor suppressor gene in numerous types of human cancer. However, the expression of TERF1 and its mechanism in prostate cancer (PCa) remains unclear. The present study aimed to explore the expression and functions of TERF1 in PCa. The UALCAN database was used to analyze the differential expression of TERF1 between normal prostate tissue and primary PCa tissue. Cell apoptosis was analyzed by Annexin V/propidium iodide staining, an...

The aim of the present study was to explore the mechanism by which Notch1‑small activating (sa)RNA restored androgen sensitivity in human metastatic castration‑resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). After transfection of Notch1‑saRNA‑1480 in PC3 cells, the expression of Notch1 and androgen receptor (AR) was investigated by reverse transcription quantitative PCR (RT‑qPCR) and western blotting. Furthermore, the protein expression level of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) was measured. Then, fl...

Low Temperature Plasma (LTP) generates reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, causing cell death, similarly to radiation. Radiation resistance results in tumour recurrence, however mechanisms of LTP resistance are unknown. LTP was applied to patient‐derived prostate epithelial cells and gene expression assessed. A typical global oxidative response (AP‐1 and Nrf2 signalling) was induced, whereas Notch signalling was activated exclusively in progenitor cells. Notch inhibition induced expression of ...

The prostate is the major exocrine gland of the male reproductive system. The prostatic epithelium secretes an alkaline fluid, the prostatic fluid, that constitutes about 20–30% volume of the seminal fluid. It provides proteins and ions essential to control the ejaculation process and to regulate proteins involved in sperm maturation (e.g. human kallikrein-related peptidases, phosphatases, polyamines, pepsinogen II, citrate, glucose, and Zn2+, among others). The prostate exhibits some particular...

: Notch plays a protumorigenic role in many cancers including prostate cancer (PCa). Global notch inhibition of multiple Notch family members using γ-secretase inhibitors has shown efficacy in suppressing PCa growth in murine models. However, global Notch inhibition is associated with marked toxicity due to the widespread function of many different Notch family members in normal cell physiology. Accordingly, in the current study, we explored if specific inhibition of Notch1 would effectively inh...
