FTY720 induces apoptosis of human hepatoma cell lines through PI3-K-mediated Akt dephosphorylation.


Our aim was to study the anticancer effect of the novel immunomodulator FTY720 in vitro and in vivo by investigation of cell cycle entry, cell cycle regulation, cell survival and apoptosis pathways. Three hepatoma cell lines with different p53 statuses (HepG2, Huh-7 and Hep3B) and one non-tumorigenic immortalized liver cell line (MIHA) were used for an in… (More)
