UNASSIGNED : The aim of the study was to investigate the role of shugoshinl (SGO1) in human prostate cancer (PCa). UNASSIGNED : Quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) was used to determine the expression of SGO1 in PCa tissues and cell lines. The correlation between SGO1 expression and clinicopathological characteristics of PCa patients was analyzed using Kaplan-Meier analysis. SGO1 siRNA was successfully constructed and transfected into PCa cell lines (LNCaP and PC3). The knockdown efficacy was assessed by qRT-PCR. MTT assay and Transwell assay were conducted to observe the effect of SGO1 on the proliferation and invasion of PCa cell lines. UNASSIGNED : SGO1-expression levels were found to be higher in the PCa tissues and cell lines. Correlation was identified between the expression of SGO1 and preoperative prostate-specific antigen (P=0.017), lymph-node metastasis (P=0.044), and Gleason score (P=0.041). Patients with higher SGO1 expression displayed more advanced clinicopathological characteristics in addition to a shorter biochemical recurrence-free survival time. Additionally, SGO1 knockdown resulted in the inhibition of PCa cell proliferation, migration, and invasion. UNASSIGNED : Taken together, the findings of the current study present evidence suggesting that SGO1 could inhibit the growth and invasion of PCa cells, highlighting its potential as a novel therapeutic target for the treatment of PCa.
