Interaction Information:

Comment Resveratrol (trans-3,4', 5-trihydroxystilbene) is a naturally occurring polyphenolic compound that has antiinflammatory, antioxidant, neuroprotective properties and acts as a chemopreventive agent. Resveratrol causes cell cycle arrest and induces apoptotic cell death in various types of cancer cells. In the current studies, the effect of resveratrol on phosphoinositide kinase-3 (PI3K)/protein kinase B (Akt)/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway was examined in human U251 glioma cells. Resveratrol decreased both the expression and phosphorylation of Akt. Inhibitors of PI3K (LY294002) and Akt (SH-6) enhanced resveratrol-induced LDH release and caspase-3 activation.
