Inhibition of protein phosphorylation in MIA pancreatic cancer cells: confluence of metabolic and signaling pathways.

Oxythiamine (OT), a transketolase inhibitor, is known to inhibit pancreatic cancer cell proliferation. In this study, we investigated the effect of inhibition of the transketolase pathway on signaling pathways in MIA PaCa cancer cells using in-house proteomic techniques. We hypothesized that OT alter protein phosphorylation thus affecting cell cycle arrest… CONTINUE READING
