Extracellular Matrix Degradation by Human Prostatic Carcinoma Cells and Its Inhibition by Retinoic Acid1

Abstract

Both normal and malignant prostatic epithelial cells in culture secrete urokinase-type plasminogen activator (u-PA) into the culture medium. u-PA has been shown to have a direct association with invasive and metastatic potential of many types of cancers. We propose that prostate cancer has the intrinsic ability to invade and metastasize because of its… (More)
