Metformin, an oral biguanide for the treatment of type II diabetes, has been shown to have anticancer effects in ovarian cancer. Energy starvation induced by metformin causes endoplasmic reticulum stress-mediated unfolded protein response (UPR) and autophagy. UPR and autophagy act as a survival or death mechanism in cells. In this study, we observed that(More)
Recent studies indicate that LRS may act as a leucine sensor for the mTORC1 pathway, potentially providing an alternative strategy to overcome rapamycin resistance in cancer treatments. In this study, we developed leucyladenylate sulfamate derivatives as LRS-targeted mTORC1 inhibitors. Compound 18 selectively inhibited LRS-mediated mTORC1 activation and(More)
