Human Prostate-Specific Gene-1 (HPG-1) product is a recently discovered membrane-anchored protein of approximately 15 kD. It was detected exclusively in the prostate (19 different tissues were tested). Antisense-oligonicleotide inhibition of HPG-1 expression inhibited the growth of one prostate cancer cell line (LNCaP) significantly (86%). HPG-1 might be a novel diagnostic and/or therapeutic target.
