Lack of anti-tumor activity with the β-catenin expression inhibitor EZN-3892 in the C57BL/6J Min/+ model of intestinal carcinogenesis.
FH535 increases the radiosensitivity and reverses epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition of radioresistant esophageal cancer cell line KYSE-150R
TLDR
Investigation of the roles of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway in the acquirement of radioresistance during the radiation treatment of esophageal cancer found that EMT phenotypes can be reduced and the radiosensitivity of esophileal cancer cells can be enhanced by inhibiting the WNT/ β-Catenin pathway with FH535 treatment.
Enhancement of Radiation Sensitivity in Lung Cancer Cells by a Novel Small Molecule Inhibitor That Targets the β-Catenin/Tcf4 Interaction
TLDR
A promising novel inhibitor of β-catenin/Tcf4 interaction, named BC-23 (C21H14ClN3O4S), which acts as a potent cell death enhancer when used in combination with radiation, represents a promising new class of radiation enhancer.
Biophysical Survey of Small-Molecule β-Catenin Inhibitors: A Cautionary Tale
TLDR
This study provides an account of the claimed (and some putative) small-molecule ligands of β-catenin from the literature and shows that most of these molecules contain promiscuous chemical substructures notorious for interfering with screening assays.

TLDR
Overall, available data indicate that Wnt signaling substantially impacts NSCLC tumorigenesis, prognosis, and resistance to therapy, with loss of WNT signaling inhibitors by promoter hypermethylation or other mechanisms appearing to be particularly important.
Review wnt Signaling Pathway in Non – Small Cell Lung Cancer
TLDR
Overall, available data indicate that Wnt signaling substantially impacts NSCLC tumorigenesis, prognosis, and resistance to therapy, with loss of WNT signaling inhibitors by promoter hypermethylation or other mechanisms appearing to be particularly important.
Wnt addiction of genetically defined cancers reversed by PORCN inhibition
TLDR
A novel potent, orally available PORCN inhibitor, ETC-1922159, that blocks the secretion and activity of all Wnts is developed that is remarkably effective in treating RSPO-translocation bearing colorectal cancer patient-derived xenografts.
In Vitro and In Vivo Activities of 2,3-Diarylsubstituted Quinoxaline Derivatives against Leishmania amazonensis
TLDR
The multifactorial response that was responsible for the cellular collapse of promastigotes was based on intense mitochondrial alterations and makes them potential candidates for new drug development for the treatment of leishmaniasis.
Targeting Wnts at the Source—New Mechanisms, New Biomarkers, New Drugs
TLDR
Active inhibitors of Wnt secretion and Wnt/receptor interactions have been developed that are now entering clinical trials and may be predictive biomarkers to select patients responsive to newly developed upstream Wnt inhibitors.

A small molecule inhibitor of β-catenin/cyclic AMP response element-binding protein transcription
TLDR
ICG-001 selectively induces apoptosis in transformed cells but not in normal colon cells, reduces in vitro growth of colon carcinoma cells, and is efficacious in the Min mouse and nude mouse xenograft models of colon cancer.
Growth inhibition effect of β-catenin small interfering RNA-mediated gene silencing on human colon carcinoma HT-29 cells.
TLDR
The results showed that small interfering RNA directed against β-catenin markedly inhibited the expression and nuclear translocation of β- catenin and decreased the expression of known target genes such as cyclin D1 and c-myc; HT-29 cell proliferation was inhibited as indicated by growth reduction, cell cycle arrest in G0/G1 phase, and induction of apoptosis.
The p21-Dependent Radiosensitization of Human Breast Cancer Cells by MLN4924, an Investigational Inhibitor of NEDD8 Activating Enzyme
TLDR
This study suggested that MLN4924 could be further developed as a novel class of radiosensitizer for the treatment of breast cancer.
A small molecule inhibitor of beta-catenin/CREB-binding protein transcription [corrected].
TLDR
ICG-001 selectively induces apoptosis in transformed cells but not in normal colon cells, reduces in vitro growth of colon carcinoma cells, and is efficacious in the Min mouse and nude mouse xenograft models of colon cancer.
AV-65, a novel Wnt/β-catenin signal inhibitor, successfully suppresses progression of multiple myeloma in a mouse model
TLDR
AV-65, which diminished β-catenin protein levels and T-cell factor transcriptional activity, resulted in the inhibition of MM cell proliferation through the apoptotic pathway, indicating that this compound represents a novel and attractive therapeutic agent against MM.
NVP-BEZ235 and NVP-BGT226, dual phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitors, enhance tumor and endothelial cell radiosensitivity
TLDR
It is demonstrated that PI3K/mTOR inhibitors can enhance radiation-induced killing in tumor and endothelial cells and may be of benefit when combined with radiotherapy.
Inhibition of Wnt-2-mediated signaling induces programmed cell death in non-small-cell lung cancer cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Wnt-2 protein is overexpressed in freshly resected human non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tissues and a monoclonal antibody against the N-terminus of human Wnt -2 protein induces apoptosis in human NSCLC cell lines that overexpress it.
An RNAi-based chemical genetic screen identifies three small-molecule inhibitors of the Wnt/wingless signaling pathway
TLDR
An RNAi-based modifier screening strategy for the identification of CRT inhibitors is reported and it is shown that these inhibitors efficiently block Wnt/β-catenin–induced target genes and phenotypes in various mammalian and cancer cell lines.
Class I PI3 kinase inhibition by the pyridinylfuranopyrimidine inhibitor PI-103 enhances tumor radiosensitivity.
TLDR
Results show that inhibiting PI3K activity reduces phosphorylation of AKT at serine 473, and indicate that pharmacologic inhibitors with enhanced specificity for class IPI3K may be of benefit when combined with radiotherapy.
