The genes that were more highly expressed in carcinomas treated with androgen ablation agents included those encoding AR and steroid biosynthetic enzymes, as well as a suite of genes that have been previously shown to be targets of AR or have been implicated as being regulated by it, including the gene encoding PSA (kallikrein-related peptidase 3), KLK3, and KLK2, as well as DBI, FASN, IL6, SERPINB5, TGFBR3, TMPRSS2, TUBA1, HOXC6, TRG ,and FOLH1.
