Human Prostate Sphere-Forming Cells Represent a Subset of Basal Epithelial Cells Capable of Glandular Regeneration in Vivo


BACKGROUND Prostate stem/progenitor cells function in glandular development and maintenance. They may be targets for tumor initiation, so characterization of these cells may have therapeutic implications. Cells from dissociated tissues that form spheres in vitro often represent stem/progenitor cells. A subset of human prostate cells that form prostaspheres… (More)
