CD26+ cancer cells and CD90+ tumor-associated stromal cells were sorted from tumor tissue. Dataset analysis with transcriptomes of CD26+ luminal, CD104+ basal, CD49a+ stromal and CD31+ endothelial was carried out to identify candidates: CD90, AGR2, BCMP11, CEACAM5, CRISP3. Quantitative protomics was applied to measure these proteins in urine samples.

Sort cancer cells from tumor specimens Determine gene expression (transcriptome) by Affymetrix DNA arrays Dataset analysis to identify cancer up-regulated genes encoding secreted or extracellular proteins Proteomic analysis (mass spectrometry, Western blotting) to validate increased cancer expression
Genomics and proteomics. DNA microarray analysis of sorted cell types to identify cancer-specific genes encoding secreted/extracellular proteins. Mass spectrometry-based proteomics to measure protin levels in case vs. control urine samples.
Data analysis was done to evaluate data quality of Affymetrix arrays (mRNA expression correlation to protein expression by immunohistochemistry), to compare other publicly available prostate cancer datasets.

New Round of EDRN FOAs

The RFAs for EDRN have been released:
- Biomarker Developmental Laboratories (U01),
- Clinical Validation Centers (U01),
- Biomarker Reference Laboratories (U24),
- Data Management and Coordinating Center (U24).

EDRN Renewal flyer NOTE-New receipt deadline for applications submitted for all EDRN FOAs is January 20, 2015, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.

There will be a Pre-Application webinar to discuss each of the four individual EDRN FOAs on Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014, from 1pm-5pm (Eastern). Potential applicants interested in participating in the webinar should send a message to Dr. Sharmistha Ghosh (ghoshjanjigias@mail.nih.gov) no later than 5:00 p.m. (EST) November 21, 2014. Please mention the FOA of interest in the subject line.
