Supplementary Material

Supplementary Data: The Supplemental Data comprise three tables (Table 1, Table 2A, Table 2B and Table 3).

Supplementary Data Table 1: provides the amplification primers and detection probes

Supplementary Data Table 2A: describes the median mRNA expression values and ranges of the uPA system members in malignant tissue and corresponding nonmalignant tissue of PCa patients.

Supplementary Data Table 2B: presents the median antigen concentrations and ranges of the uPA system members in serum of PCa and BPH patients.

Supplementary Data Table 3: gives an overview of the literature and the results of this study for associations of tissue RNA or protein levels of uPA gene family members with clinicopathological parameters in prostate cancer.
