Abstract : The proposed studies are expected to (1) identify genetic variations in the genes of androgen transporters that are associated with the racial differences in prostate cancer aggressiveness; (2) identify key androgen transporters of which the expression and/or the alteration of expression in cancer relative to benign prostate tissue are associated with racial differences in prostate cancer aggressiveness. Progress in the reporting period includes: 1) Completion of genotyping for all 11 SLCO members using PCaP DNA samples; 2) Finish data processing and preliminary data analyses for genotyping, and identified SNPs that may be associated with prostate cancer characteristics; 3) Continued RNAScope analysis of SLCO transporter in prostate cancer tissue sections and discover unique cell type-specific expression of a SLCO transporter; 4) Further delineation of androgen uptake mechanism on molecular levels.
