Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study is to compare the effect of PI-103, which is a dual PI3K/mTOR inhibitor, on MDA-MB-231 human breast cancer cell line that has an intact PI3K/Akt pathway with MDA-MB-468 cells defected in this pathway (EGFR amplification and PTEN mutation) and also to compare the effect of PI-103, to Wortmannin, which is a PI3K inhibitor, by determining the regulatory role of this inhibition on HIF-1 alpha expression.
