Upregulation of Beclin-1 expression in DU-145 cells following low-frequency ultrasound irradiation combined with microbubbles.

Abstract

Castration-resistant prostate cancer (PCa) is difficult to treat. Autophagy, which is an evolutionarily conserved mechanism, plays an important role in cancer development. The balance between cell death and survival in different stages varies in cancer development. The role of autophagy in PCa development has not yet been fully elucidated. Ultrasound may be… (More)
