The Ron Receptor Promotes Prostate Tumor Growth in the Tramp Mouse Model

The Ron receptor tyrosine kinase (TK) is overexpressed in many cancers, including prostate cancer. To examine the significance of Ron in prostate cancer in vivo, we utilized a genetically engineered mouse model, referred to as TRAMP mice, that is predisposed to develop prostate tumors. In this model, we show that prostate tumors from 30-week-old TRAMP mice… (More)
