The role of Y-box binding protein 1 in prostate cancer

Pokorny, Morgan R. (2013) The role of Y-box binding protein 1 in prostate cancer. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis examined the possible role of Y-box binding protein 1 (YBX1) in prostate cancer aggression and spread. Novel roles were uncovered for YBX1 in the regulation of several genes previously implicated in prostate cancer, as well as showing an effect for YBX1 in increasing tumour cell invasion and movement and reciprocal regulation of androgen-regulated gene networks. In addition, it was found that Y-box 1 regulated several other well-known cancer genes implicated in breast and other cancers. The work performed in this thesis has strengthened the foundations for pursuing YBX1 as a possible central target molecule in prostate cancer therapeutics.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
