Previously, we demonstrated that inhibition of proteasomal chymotrypsin-like (CT-like) activity in human prostate cancer (PCa) PC-3 cultures and PC-3 xenografts results in accumulation of ubiquitinated proteins, followed by induction of cell death. Studies have shown that plasma CT-like proteasomal activity may be a powerful biomarker for risk(More)
Patients undergoing androgen blockade therapy develop castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), which is associated with Bcl-2 upregulation and results in disease progression and death. In recent years, promising therapeutic agents, such as the BH3-only mimetic ABT-263 and proteasome inhibitors, have been developed and widely evaluated against a broad(More)
The prostate-specific antigen (PSA) "gray zone" in Chinese men is likely higher than the traditional value (2.5-10.0 ng/ml) since the incidence of prostate cancer in Chinese men is relative low. The utility of percent free PSA in predicting prostate cancer is based on Western populations and may introduce sizable bias when applied to a Chinese cohort. We(More)
Lake eutrophication is associated with excessive anthropogenic nutrients (mainly nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P)) and unobserved internal nutrient cycling. Despite the advances in understanding the role of external loadings, the contribution of internal nutrient cycling is still an open question. A dynamic mass-balance model was developed to simulate and(More)
