BACKGROUND Many members of the human kallikrein gene family are differentially expressed in cancer and a few have potential as diagnostic/prognostic markers. KLK14 is a newly discovered human kallikrein gene that is mainly expressed in the central nervous system and endocrine tissues. Since KLK14 was found to be regulated by steroid hormones in prostate cancer cell lines, we hypothesized that it will be differentially expressed in prostate cancer tissues compared to their normal counterparts… CONTINUE READING
