My project focuses on the investigation of whether targeting myristolation of Src family kinases (SFKs) is essential for their mediation to paracrine fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) induced prostate tumor progression. Furthermore, I must determine if the compound exhibits an inhibitory effect on FGF10 induced prostate cancer through targeting the Src kinase signaling.
