ABSTRACT

XB130 is a cytosolic adaptor protein involved in various physiological processes and oncogenesis of certain malignancies, but its role in the development of prostate cancer remains unclear. In current study, we examined XB130 expression in prostate cancer tissues and found that XB130 expression was remarkably increased in prostate cancer tissues and significantly correlated with increased prostate specific antigen (PSA), free PSA (f-PSA), prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) and T classification. Patients with highly expressed XB130 had significantly decreased survival, which suggested XB130 as a possible prognostic indicator for prostate cancer. In vitro experiments showed that reduced XB130 expression restrained tumor growth both in vitro and in vivo. Furthermore, XB130 knockdown hindered transition of G1 to S phase in prostate cancer cell line DU145 and LNCap, which might contribute to the inhibition of cellular proliferation. Results from transwell assay demonstrated that downregulation of XB130 may attenuate invasion and metastasis of prostate cancer. Semiquantitative analysis of Western blot suggested that decreased XB130 expression was accompanied by diminished Akt signaling and EMT process. Thus, above observations suggest that XB130 may be a novel molecular marker and potent therapeutic target for prostate cancer.
