Abstract

Herein, murine prostate cancer cell lines, generated via selective transduction with a single oncogene (c-Myc, Ha-Ras, and v-Src), showed oncogene-specific prostate cancer molecular signatures that were recapitulated in human prostate cancer and developed lung metastasis in immune-competent mice. Interrogation of two independent retrospective cohorts of patient samples using the oncogene signature showed an ability to distinguish tumor from normal prostate with a predictive value for prostate cancer of 98% to 99%. In a blinded study, the signature algorithm showed independent substratification of reduced recurrence-free survival by Kaplan-Meier analysis. The generation of new oncogene-specific prostate cancer cell lines that recapitulate human prostate cancer gene expression, which metastasize in immune-competent mice, are a valuable new resource for testing targeted therapy, whereas the molecular signatures identified herein provides further value over current gene signature markers of prediction and outcome.
