Metformin causes an AMP/ATP ratio increase and AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activation. Since caveolin-1 (Cav-1) plays a role in AMPK activation and energy balance, we investigated whether Cav-1 could participate in metformin's inhibitory effect on IGF1 signaling. The effect of metformin was studied in two non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell(More)
BACKGROUND Insulin-like growth factor-I receptor (IGF-IR) is a tyrosine kinase receptor (RTK) associated with caveolae, invaginations of the plasma membrane that regulate vesicular transport, endocytosis and intracellular signaling. IGF-IR internalization represents a key mechanism of down-modulation of receptors number on plasma membrane. IGF-IR interacts(More)
Caveolae are plasma membrane regions enriched in Caveolin proteins which regulate vesicular transport, endocytosis, and cell signaling. IGF-I receptor (IGF-IR) localizes in caveolae and tyrosine phosphorylates Caveolin-1 (Cav-1), the most represented caveolar protein. Cav-1 participates to IGF-IR internalization and signaling directly interacting with(More)
