Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Cato et al. utilize cistrome and transcriptome analyses in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) to reveal that the androgen receptor (AR) splice variant ARv7 functions as a transcriptional repressor and heterodimerizes with full-length AR at a subset of growth-suppressive genes to support CRPC growth.
