BACKGROUND Recent evidence suggests that genetic variation in the promoter of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) gene may contribute to individual variation in serum PSA levels. However, polymorphisms associated with variations in PSA levels have not been identified. METHODS We used the polymerase chain reaction to amplify the promoter region of the PSA(More)
1alpha,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D(3) (1,25(OH)(2)D(3)) inhibits the growth of numerous cancer cell types. The intracellular proteins that mediate 1,25(OH)(2)D(3)-induced growth inhibition are poorly defined, although it is speculated that p21 and p27 are involved. We tested the requirement of p21 and p27 by treating primary wild-type, p21(-/-), and p27(-/-)(More)
We performed studies to test synergism between the growth inhibitory effects of genistein and vitamin D compounds on prostatic epithelial cells. Isobolographic analysis demonstrated that genistein, in combination with the hormonally active form of cholecalciferol, 1alpha,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol, synergistically inhibited the growth of primary human(More)
