Abstract

Metastasis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in cancer patients. For example, in the United States, the five-year relative survival in local prostate cancer patients is nearly 100% while it is only 32% in patients with distant metastases (http://www.cancer.org). Similar to many types of malignant tumors, prostate cancer develops from the mutations or disregulation of various genes involved in regulation signal transduction and the cell cycle [1]. The discovery of molecular pathways that significantly contribute to tumor metastasis would provide specific targets and optimal strategies in prevention and treatment of such malignant diseases.
