Oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes had been traditionally studied in the context of cell proliferation, differentiation, senescence, and survival, four relatively cell-autonomous processes. Consequently, in the late ’80s-early ’90s, neoplastic growth was described largely as an imbalance between net cell accumulation and loss, brought about through mutations in cancer genes.

Prostate cancer (CaP) is the most commonly diagnosed malignancy in men in the Western world. In North America, more than 275000 men are diagnosed annually whereby approximately 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with CaP in their lifetime, and 1 in 34 men will die from castrate-resistant metastatic disease.

Efforts to sequence cancer genomes have begun to uncover comprehensive lists of genes altered in cancer. Unfortunately, the number and complexity of identified alterations has made dissecting the underlying biology of cancer difficult, as many genes are not amenable to manipulation by small molecules or antibodies. RNA interference (RNAi) provides

Cancerous cells may contain a vast array of dysregulated or altered genes that contribute to tumorigenesis, but there are often a few prominent oncogenic drivers that are very commonly found in a variety of cancers. The MYC gene family, composed of c-MYC, n-MYC, and l-MYC, is a group of basic
