Androgens provide survival signals to prostate epithelial cells, and androgen ablation induces apoptosis in the prostate gland. However, the molecular mechanisms of actions of the androgen-signaling pathway in these processes are not fully understood. Here, we report that androgens induced expression of the cellular Fas/FasL-associated death domain(More)
The androgen receptor (AR) cofactor p44/WDR77, which regulates expression of a set of androgen target genes, is required for differentiation of prostate epithelium. Aberrant localization of p44/WDR77 in the cytoplasm is associated with prostate tumorigenesis. Here, we describe studies that used the mouse prostate and human prostate cancer cells as model(More)
The molecular mechanism that controls the proliferation and differentiation of prostate epithelial cells is currently unknown. We previously identified a 44-kDa protein (p44/wdr77) as an androgen receptor-interacting protein that regulates a set of androgen receptor target genes in prostate epithelial cells and prostate cancer. In this study, we found that(More)
BACKGROUND The chimeric sequences produced by phi29 DNA polymerase, which are named as chimeras, influence the performance of the multiple displacement amplification (MDA) and also increase the difficulty of sequence data process. Despite several articles have reported the existence of chimeric sequence, there was only one research focusing on the structure(More)
The androgen receptor (AR) pathway plays critical roles in controlling differentiation and proliferation of prostate epithelial cells. We previously identified a novel AR cofactor, p44/WDR77, which specifically enhances AR transcriptional activity in the prostate gland and prostate cancer. To further elucidate p44/WDR77's role in the AR signaling pathway,(More)
