TP53INP1 as new therapeutic target in castration-resistant prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer (PC) is one of the most common malignancies in industrialized countries, and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. We recently showed that over-expression of tumor protein 53-induced nuclear protein 1 (TP53INP1), a cell stress response protein, is a worse prognostic factor in PC, particularly predictive of biological cancer relapse. Moreover, treatment of castration-sensitive (CS) LNCaP tumor cells with a TP53INP1 antisense oligonucleotide (TP53INP1 ASO) inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis. The aim of this study was to investigate variations of TP53INP1 expression in PC during androgen withdrawal therapy and in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).Lire l‘article
