Differential proteomic alterations between localised and metastatic prostate cancer

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Molecular alterations in the prostate cancer proteome mediate the functional and phenotypic transformation from clinically localised to metastatic cancer, a transition that drives patient's mortality and challenges therapeutic intervention. A first approximation of differential proteomic alterations stratified by disease stage has yielded repertoires of potential diagnostic and prognostic markers, multiplex signatures of predictive value, and yield fundamental insight into molecular commonalities in cancer progression. Deciphering these causative proteomic alterations from the molecular noise will continue to mature our understanding of tumour biology and drive new computational and integrative approaches to model a system's view that accommodates the heterogeneity of prostate cancer progression. © 2006 Cancer Research.
