We identified TMPRSS2 as a gene that is down-regulated in androgen-independent prostate cancer xenograft tissue derived from a bone metastasis. Using specific monoclonal antibodies, we show that the TMPRSS2-encoded serine protease is expressed as a Mr 70,000 full-length form and a cleaved Mr 32,000 protease domain. Mutation of Ser-441 in the catalytic triad(More)
Thyroid cancer is one of the most common carcinomas of the endocrine system with an increasing incidence. A growing number of studies have focused on the diagnostic and prognostic values of dysregulated microRNAs (miRNAs) in thyroid carcinoma. However, differences in the measurement platforms, variations in lab protocols, and small sample sizes can make(More)
