OBJECTIVE To integrate the mapping of ERG alterations with the collection of expression microarray (EMA) data, as previous EMA analyses have failed to consider the genetic heterogeneity and complex patterns of ERG alteration frequently found in cancerous prostates. MATERIALS AND METHODS We determined genome-wide expression levels with GeneChip Human Exon(More)
Rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common soft tissue sarcoma in the pediatric population. As this tumor has an undifferentiated myogenic phenotype, agents that promote differentiation hold particular promise as part of a novel therapeutic approach to combat this type of cancer. In this report, we focus on the contribution of two microRNAs (miRNAs) in(More)
BACKGROUND Recent evidence suggests that prostate stem cells in benign and tumor tissue express the cell surface marker CD133, but these cells have not been well characterized. The aim of our study was to gene expression profile CD133-expressing cells. METHODS We analyzed CD133-positive (CD133+) and -negative (CD133-) sub-populations of high-integrin(More)
In the normal human prostate, undifferentiated proliferative cells reside in the basal layer and give rise to luminal secretory cells. There are, however, few epithelial cell lines that have a basal cell phenotype and are able to differentiate. We set out to develop a cell line with these characteristics that would be suitable for the study of the early(More)
