Involvement of mTOR and survivin inhibition in tamoxifen-induced apoptosis in human hepatoblastoma cell line HepG2.


Patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) have shown to benefit from tamoxifen treatment. The mechanisms of tamoxifen effects in HCC, however, are not yet clearly understood. The PI3K/Akt/mTOR signal pathway is involved in cell proliferation, tumorigenesis, and apoptosis. Over-expression of survivin has played an important role in leading to… (More)
