Intrauterine fetal programming by low protein diet (IFP) impairs growth of rat prostate. Moreover, this kind of fetal programming impairs seric testosterone in adult rat and increases the incidence of proliferative lesions. Recent studies emphasize the role of androgen and estrogen signaling pathways in the initiation and progression of prostate cancer. Thus, the aim of this project is ...
Intrauterine fetal programming by low protein diet (IFP) impairs growth and maturation of rat prostate. Moreover, this kind of fetal programming increases the incidence of proliferative lesions in adult rat prostates, mainly lesions containing stem cells markers. Recent studies emphasize the role of stem cells in the initiation and progression of prostate cancer. Thus, the aim of this p...
The prostate gland is a hormone dependent tissue regulated throughout life by androgen action. It is also known that estrogens play key roles in prostate development and homeostasis and contribute to prostate carcinogenesis and progression. While estrogen actions through multiple receptors have been studied in detail in female organs, the mechanisms of estrogenic effects in the prostate...
