The androgen receptor (AR), a steroid receptor family member, is a ligand-dependent transcription factor that has an integral role in normal prostate development. Alterations in AR-mediated activity can result in abnormal gene expression, dysregulated cell growth and prostate cancer. Coregulator proteins that interact with AR to influence activity and(More)
BACKGROUND We developed non-invasive, cell-based screening assays to rapidly and biologically assess factors that modulate prostate cancer growth and affect androgen receptor (AR) activity. METHODS LNCaP cells, which stably express enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) either constitutively or upon AR activation, were treated with a variety of agents,(More)
