We recently found that Rottlerin not only inhibits proliferation but also causes Bcl-2- and Beclin 1-independent autophagic death in apoptosis-resistant breast adenocarcinoma MCF-7 cells. Having excluded a role for canonical signaling pathways, the current study was aimed to investigate the contribution of the AMPK/mTOR axis in autophagy induction and to search for the upstream signaling molecules potentially targeted by Rottlerin. Using several enzyme inhibitors, Western blotting analysis… CONTINUE READING
