Effect of PI3K/mTOR, Erk1/2 and EGFR/PDGFRβ inhibitors alone or in combination with bicalutamide on the AR expression and cell proliferation in Hs578T and BT549. A) Effect of drugs on AR expression in Hs578T and BT549. Cells were cultured and treated with drugs for 24 h. Cell lysates were analyzed by western blot for AR expression. α-tubuline was used as a loading control. B) Effect of drugs on cell proliferation in Hs578T and BT549. MTT metabolization was performed after 4 days to evaluate cell proliferation. Control cells were untreated. Statistical difference (* = p < 0.05, Bic versus control or drug combination versus drug alone.) was analyzed using a Test T. C) Effect of drugs on cell proliferation in Hs578T and BT549. Cell counting was performed after 4 days to evaluate cell proliferation. Control cells were untreated. Statistical difference (* = p < 0.05, Bic versus control or drug combination versus drug alone.) was analyzed using a Test T.
