Integrin-α10 dependency identifies RAC and rictor as therapeutic targets in high-grade myxofibrosarcoma
Integrin alpha Chains
rac GTP-Binding Proteins
Identifying the molecular pathogenesis for myxofibrosarcoma progression has proven challenging given the highly complex genomic alterations in this tumor type. We found that integrin-α10 promotes tumor cell survival through activation of TRIO-RAC-RICTOR-mTOR signaling, and that inhibitors of RAC and mTOR have antitumor effects in vivo, thus identifying a potential treatment strategy for patients with high-risk myxofibrosarcoma.
