The effect of overexpression of 15-lipoxygenase-1 (15-LO-1) was studied in the human prostate cancer cell line, PC-3. Stable PC-3 cell lines were generated by transfection with 15-LO-1-sense (15-LOS), 15-LO-1-antisense (15-LOAS) or vector (Zeo) and selection with Zeocin. After characterization by...
In mice, the sex difference in susceptibility to hepatocarcinogenesis results from the tumor promoting activity of testosterone and from the inhibition of tumor promotion by ovarian hormones. We investigated the role of growth hormone in the sex-dependent regulation of susceptibility, because sex...
