Article
Full-text available
Endothelial cell adhesion and migration are critical steps of the angiogenic process, whose dysfunction is associated with tumor growth and metastasis. The TRPM8 channel has recently been proposed to play a protective role in prostate cancer by impairing cell motility. However, the mechanisms by which it could influence vascular behavior are unknow...

In prostate carcinogenesis, expression and/or activation of the Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin 8 channel (TRPM8) was shown to block in vitro Prostate Cancer (PCa) cell migration. Because of their localization at the plasma membrane, ion channels, such as TRPM8 and other membrane receptors, are promising pharmacological targets. The aim of...
Article
Full-text available
In prostate carcinogenesis, androgens are known to control the expression of the transient receptor potential melastatin 8 (TRPM8) protein via activation of androgen receptor (AR). Overexpression and/or activity of TRPM8 channel was shown to suppress prostate cancer (PCa) cell migration. Here we report that at certain concentrations androgens facil...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Transient receptor potential (TRP) channels control multiple processes involved in cancer progression by modulating cell proliferation, survival, invasion and intravasation, as well as, endothelial cell (EC) biology and tumor angiogenesis. Nonetheless, a complete TRP expression signature in tumor vessels, including in prostate cancer (P...
Article
Full-text available
While originally cloned from the prostate in 2001, transient receptor potential, melastatin member 8 (TRPM8) has since been identified as the cold/menthol receptor in the peripheral nervous system. This discovery has led to hundreds of studies regarding the role of this channel in pain and thermosensation phenomena, while relegating TRPM8 involveme...
Article
Full-text available
In the fight against prostate cancer (PCa), TRPM8 is one of the most promising clinical targets. Indeed, several studies have highlighted that TRPM8 involvement is key in PCa progression because of its impact on cell proliferation, viability, and migration. However, data from the literature are somewhat contradictory regarding the precise role of T...
Article
Full-text available
Emerging evidence indicates that the TRPM8 channel plays an important role in prostate cancer (PCa) progression, by impairing the motility of these cancer cells. Here, we reveal a novel facet of PCa motility control via direct protein-protein interaction (PPI) of the channel with the small GTPase Rap1A. The functional interaction of the two protein...
Article
Full-text available
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) appears to be a promising strategy in biomedical applications. However, the complexity of its parameters prevents wide acceptance. This work presents and characterizes a novel optical device based on knitted light-emitting fabrics and dedicated to in vitro PDT involving low irradiance over a long illumination period. Tech...
Article
Full-text available
Recent studies have revealed gender differences in cold perception, and pointed to a possible direct action of testosterone (TST) on the cold-activated TRPM8 (Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin Member 8) channel. However, the mechanisms by which TST influences TRPM8-mediated sensory functions remain elusive. Here, we show that TST inhibits TRP...
Article
Full-text available
Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers in developed countries. Several studies suggest that variations in calcium homeostasis are involved in carcinogenesis. Interestingly, (Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin member 8) TRPM8 calcium permeable channel expression is differentially regulated during prostate carcinog...
Article
Full-text available
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of male cancer death in developed countries. Although the role of angiogenesis in its progression is well established, the efficacy of anti-angiogenic therapy is not clearly proved. Whether this could depend on differential responses between tumor and normal endothelial cells has not been tested. We isola...
