This project will test a non-invasive urine assay based on the overexpression and high frequency gene mutations in a unique protein, delta-catenin, in prostate cancer. The success of this project will provide the foundation to investigate whether delta-catenin-based assays are a potentially better prostate cancer biomarker for development of a new diagnostic test.
