Biological Activity

LY294002 is a highly selective inhibitor of phosphatidylinositol 3 (PI3) kinase. LY294002 inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in human colon cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. PI3K inhibitor LY294002 prevents the induction of both D-type cyclin mRNA and protein in T-lymphoblasts, while rapamycin inhibits the induction of protein. LY294002 significantly decreased the activities of Cdk2 and E2F in mES cells. LY294002 induced accumulation of cells in G(1) phase followed by apoptotic cell death. LY294002 also resultes in suppression of tumor growth and induction of apoptosis, especially in the LoVo tumors, and therefore shows remarkable effectiveness in the mouse peritonitis carcinomatosa model.

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.

Results "Notably, inhibitors of PI3K (LY294002), Akt (MK-2206) and mTOR (rapamycin) markedly decreased the LSS-induced wound closure activity. However, pretreatment with inhibitors of FAK (PF573228) and Src (PP2) has no effect on the LSS-induced cell motility (Figure 1B). It is suggested that PI3K, Akt and mTOR might be participated LSS-induced cell motility in an FAK and Src-independent manner. "
