2-methylbenzoyl berbamine, a multi-targeted inhibitor, suppresses the growth of human osteosarcoma through disabling NF-κB, ERK and AKT signaling networks

Figure 2. BBD24 down-regulated NF-κB, ERK and AKT signaling pathways of HOS cells. The cells were treated with BBD24 at indicated concentrations for 48 hours, and then nuclear and cytoplasmic proteins were extracted for western blot analysis. β-actin and histone 1 were used as cytoplasmic and nuclear loading controls, respectively. (AE) BBD24 treatment reduced nuclear NF-κB p65 protein level, and inhibited activation of ERK and AKT of HOS cells in dose-dependent manners. Results were expressed as means ± SD of three independent experiments. * P<0.05.
