Inhibition of the mammalian target of rapamycin and the induction of cell cycle arrest in mantle cell lymphoma cells.
Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors represent a new class of potential anticancer agents. The mTOR inhibitor, rapamycin, inhibited proliferation in three mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) cell lines and reduced cyclin D3 expression while cyclin D1 levels remained unchanged. This finding was confirmed in cells from a MCL patient.
