Protein expression levels of p-PI3K, p-Akt, p-mTOR in MDA-MB-231 cells treated with BPTS. (A) Western blot of the proteins in cells treated with BPTS alone, (B) BPTS + LY294002 and (C) BPTS + rapamycin. (a) Representative blot of expression. (b), (c) and (d) Quantification of expression normalized to expression of β-actin. *P < 0.05 vs. 0 μg/mL of BPTS; ns, not significant
