Post-transcriptional Gene Regulation by MicroRNA-194 Promotes Neuroendocrine Transdifferentiation in Prostate Cancer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Neuroendocrine prostate cancer is an aggressive disease subtype associated with poor patient outcome. Fernandes et al. demonstrate that a microRNA, miR-194, promotes the emergence of neuroendocrine features in prostate cancer cells by targeting genes that regulate epithelial-neuroendocrine plasticity. Inhibiting miR-194 suppresses the growth of neuroendocrine prostate cancer models.
