Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second leading cause of cancer-associated death in men with therapy resistance acquisition to androgen deprivation treatment and metastasis progression. Understanding the mechanisms of tumor progression to metastatic stage is necessary for the design of therapeutic and prognostic schemes. The main objective of the current study is to determine, using transcriptomic and proteomic analyses on patient derived-xenograft models, whether differentially aggressive PCa tumors predispose their microenvironment (stroma) to a metastatic gene expression pattern, and how this information could be applied in prognostics. Transcriptomic profiling (RNA Sequencing) was performed on PCa PDX models representing different disease stages; BM18 (androgen dependent bone metastasis) and LAPC9 (androgen independent bone metastasis). Using organism-specific reference databases, the human-specific transcriptome, representing the tumor, was identified and separated from the mouse-specific transcriptome (representing the contributing stroma counterpart) from the same PDX tumor samples. To identify proteome changes in the tumor (human) versus the stroma (mouse), we performed human and mouse cell separation using the MACS mouse d...Continue Reading
