These data suggest that cardamonin suppressed NSCLC cell proliferation and inhibited metastasis partly by restraining the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway and it might be an effective therapeutic compound for NSCLC in the future.
Our in vitro studies suggested that activation of EGFR signaling and/or genetic alteration of downstream effectors like PIK3CA were alternative resistance mechanisms used by capmatinib-resistant NSCLC cell lines.
The present findings suggested that treatment with pemetrexed may exhibit synergistic effects with PTEN on lung cancer cells via the inhibition of the PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling pathway and through carbohydrate metabolism, and treatment with pemetrexed combined with PTEN overexpression may represent a novel therapeutic strategy for the treatment of NSCLC.
We have conducted this study to check the effect of VCN-2 on the cell viability and the effect on PTEN (Phosphatase and tensin homolog), PI3KCA (Phosphatidylinositol 4, 5-biphosphate 3-kinase catalytic subunit alpha isoform/PI3K 110α subunit), and Akt1 when VCN-2 was used alone and in combination with radiation in the NSCLC cell line NCI-H23 (H23).
HYSA suppressed LPS-mediated proliferation, migration, invasion, and EMT in A549 and H1299 cells by inhibiting the PI3K/Akt/mTOR and ERK/MAPK signaling pathways, indicating that HYSA may be a potential candidate to treat inflammation-mediated NSCLC.
Mechanistically, miR-31 directly repressed RASA1 and FIH-1 expression, and thus, at least partially activated the RAF-MEK-ERK and PI3K-AKT signaling pathways in NSCLC with acquired resistance to gefitinib.
Collectively, our results, both <i>in vivo</i> and <i>in vitro</i>, demonstrate that BBD leads to autophagic cell death through downregulating the PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling pathway and improved the antitumor effects of cisplatin in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
Further analyses identified an integrin β3-mediated ternary complex comprising NRP1-integrin β3-KRAS<sup>MUT</sup> and its downstream signaling of PI3K-Akt and RalB-TBK1 as a primary resistance mechanism of KRAS<sup>MUT</sup> NSCLC to cetuximab treatment.
<b>Conclusion:</b> Taken together, we proved that miR-224 might play essential roles in cellular functions of nutrient-depleted A549 cells possibly through regulating the target PTEN and downstream signal PI3K, suggesting the potential of miR-224 to be a therapeutic target for NSCLC therapy.
However, there is a lack of information about the ability of PolyI:C to affect PI3K/Akt/p53 signaling pathway in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and its pharmacodynamic evaluation in vivo still remain unclear so far.
The present study explored the association between <i>KRAS proto-oncogene GTPase (KRAS), phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate 3-kinase catalytic subunit α (PIK3CA) and tumor protein p53 (TP53) mutations, and the clinical features and survival prognosis in 50 patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
Low levels of IFNγ endowed cancer stem-like properties via the intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM1)-PI3K-Akt-Notch1 axis, whereas high levels of IFNγ activated the JAK1-STAT1-caspase pathway to induce apoptosis in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
