Transforming growth factor beta1 stimulates urokinase plasminogen activator system on prostate cancer cells.


The effect of TGFbeta1 on the proliferation and plasminogen activator system (PA) of two prostate carcinoma cell lines, PC3 and DU145, was investigated. PA, particularly urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA), has been implicated in extracellular proteolysis, local invasiveness, metastatic spread and angiogenesis. High levels of uPA and plasminogen activator… (More)
