A. Normal prostate tissue stained with E-cadherin, CK18 and DAPI. 

B. Adrenal gland stained with E-cadherin.

C. Prostate cancer metastasis to bone marrow (H&E image).

We demonstrated, for the first time in patients with prostate cancer, a significant reduction of CDCP1 protein expression in metastatic relative to primary tumor tissues, concordant with gene expression levels in ONCOMINE and TCGA data sets. To investigate how the loss of CDCP1 facilitates prostate cancer metastasis, we determined the consequences of CDCP1 loss in nonadherent cancer cells, which provide an experimental model system of circulating tumor cells (CTC).
