BACKGROUND Prostate cancer is the most common noncutaneous male cancer and one of the least understood malignant diseases. Identifying key genetic factors involved in the metastasis of prostate cancer cells is critical. In this study, we used selective subtractive differential gene display to identify a gene whose decreased expression may contribute to the(More)
BACKGROUND In insects, including Anopheles mosquitoes, Dscam (Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule) appears to be involved in phagocytosis of pathogens, and shows pathogen-specific splice-form expression between divergent pathogen (or parasite) types (e.g. between bacteria and Plasmodium or between Plasmodium berghei and Plasmodium falciparum). Here, data(More)
Human cutaneous fatty acid-binding protein (C-FABP) gene is capable of inducing the metastatic phenotype when overexpressed in nonmetastatic rat Rama 37 cells. However, the mechanism of how it induces metastasis is not clear. that of the primary tumors developed from the control pSV-R37 cells. Therefore , we suggest that overexpression of the C-FABP gene in(More)
