Androgen receptor expression induces FGF2, FGF-binding protein production, and FGF2 release in prostate carcinoma cells: role of FGF2 in growth, survival, and androgen receptor down-modulation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Alterations in fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) production and/or FGF receptors expression have been described to play key roles in prostate tumor progression, particularly in androgen-independent tumors. However, the role of androgen receptor (AR) in altering FGF-mediated growth and survival of prostatic neoplastic cells has not been completely… (More)
