Human melanoma cells expressing V600E B-RAF are susceptible to IGF1R targeting by small interfering RNAs.

Abstract:

The type 1 insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF1R) is overexpressed by malignant melanomas compared with benign naevi, and mediates proliferation, motility and protection from apoptosis. However, the utility of IGF1R targeting as anti-cancer therapy may be limited by activating mutations in downstream signaling intermediates. We previously showed that IGF1R knockdown blocked survival of prostate cancer cells in which Akt activation was deregulated by PTEN loss. The current study investiga...
