This report will summarize the research activities and achievements up to date, organized based on the revised Statement of Work. In summary, we have 1 Identified two regions in the AR LBD that confer the microtubule-binding activity 2 Further characterized the functional significance of the AR-microtubule interaction and provided compelling evidence to suggest that the microtubules play an important role in controlling the intracellular localization and activity of AR 3 Provided a fundamental understanding of the constitutive nuclear localization and transcriptional activities of AR-V7 and ARv567es and 4 Developed and validated a whole-blood assay for the detection of both AR-V7 and ARv567es.
