Abstract: AbstractGrowth factor receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) pathway activation is a key mechanism for mediating cancer growth, survival, and treatment resistance. Cognate ligands play crucial roles in autocrine or paracrine stimulation of these RTK pathways. Here, we show SEMA3C drives activation of multiple RTKs including EGFR, ErbB2, and MET in a cognate ligand‐independent manner via Plexin B1. SEMA3C expression levels increase in castration‐resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), where it functions to promote cancer cel…
