CD151 is associated with prostate cancer cell invasion and lymphangiogenesis in vivo
Sujita, Detchokul, Bradley, Newell, Williams, Elizabeth D., & Frauman, Albert G. (2014) CD151 is associated with prostate cancer cell invasion and lymphangiogenesis in vivo. Oncology Reports, 31(1), pp. 241-247.
CD151, a member of the tetraspanin family, is associated with regulation of migration of normal and tumour cells via cell surface microdomain formation. CD151 was found in our laboratory to have a prognostic value in prostate cancer and is a promoter of prostate cancer migration and invasion. These roles involve association with integrins on both cell-cell and cell-stroma levels. Furthermore, CD151 plays a role in endothelial cell motility. CD151 expression was examined in three commonly used prostate cancer cell lines. We investigated CD151 expression, angiogenesis (microvessel density; MVD) and lymphangiogenesis (lymphatic vessel density; LVD) in an orthotopic xenograft model of prostate cancer in matched tumours from primary and secondary sites. CD151 was found to be heterogeneously expressed across different prostate cancer cell lines and the levels of CD151 expression were significantly higher in the highly tumorigenic, androgen-insensitive cells PC-3 and DU-145 compared to the androgen-sensitive cell line LNCaP (P<0.05). The majority of in vivo xenografts developed pelvic lymph node metastases. Importantly, primary tumours that developed metastasis had significantly higher CD151 expression and MVD compared to those which did not develop metastasis (P<0.05). We identified, for the first time, that CD151 expression is associated with LVD in prostate cancer. These findings underscore the potential role of CD151 and angiogenesis in the metastatic potential of prostate cancer. CD151 has a prognostic value in this mouse model of prostate cancer and may play a role in lymphangiogenesis. CD151 is likely an important regulator of cancer cell communication with the surrounding microenvironment.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
