In this study, it was demonstrated that forkhead box N3 was downregulated in prostate cancer tissues compared to the matched normal adjacent tissues. Prostate cancer patients with high forkhead box N3 expression more frequently had longer survival (P<0.05) than those with low forkhead box N3 expression. Forkhead box N3 inhibited prostate cancer cell proliferation in vitro and in vivo. In addition, forkhead box N3 repressed expression of E2F1, a reported potential oncogene at the messenger ribonucleic acid and protein levels. Taken together, these data delineate an unrecognized function of forkhead box N3 as a tumor suppressor in prostate cancer via repressing the expression of E2F1.
