Inhibition of the MAPK pathway in HeLa cells. HeLa cells were serum-starved for 24 hours and treated with EGF for 6 hours in the presence or absence of protein kinase inhibitors: AG1470 (EGFR inhibitor), U0126 (MEK inhibitor) and Wortmannin (PI3K inhibitor). In addition, HeLa cells were transfected with a constitutively active form of Ras (RasV12). Lysates were analysed by Western-Blot against pospho-ERK1/2 and phospho-AKT to ensure protein inhibitors and transfection action over MAPK and AKT pathways. Tubulin was used as sample loading control.
