Germline mutation analysis of the androgen receptor gene in Finnish patients with prostate cancer.

Abstract

PURPOSE Steroid hormones, particularly androgens, are suspected to have a major role in prostate carcinogenesis. Since androgen receptor mediates androgenic effects on cells and recent studies suggest that the androgen receptor gene is a putative prostate cancer susceptibility locus, we screened the coding region of the androgen receptor gene for germline… (More)
