Prostate Cancer Cell Line (CWR-R1-AD1)

Human prostate cancer cell line, CWR-R1-AD1 expresses wild type full length androgen receptor (AR).

Prostate cancer is the development of cancer in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. The androgen receptor (AR) helps prostate cancer cells to survive and is a target for many anti cancer research studies by looking at inhibition.
