Background: The aims of this study were to detect the level of histone crotonylation in prostate cancer (PCa) tissues, analyze the correlations between its level and clinical stage and grade, and explore the effects of bromodomain-containing protein 4 (BRD4) inhibitors and sodium crotonate on the histone crotonylation in PCa cell lines and on the functions of PCa cells.
Methods: PCa tissues from 72 patients and adjacent tissues from 7 patients were collected, and immunohistochemistry was used to measure the level of histone crotonylation. Three human PCa cell lines, PC-3, LNCaP, and C42B, were selected and treated with IC50 value of I-BET762, I-BET726, and CPI-203, respectively. Read More
