From: Active fraction (HS7) from Taiwanofungus camphoratus inhibits AKT-mTOR, ERK and STAT3 pathways and induces CDK inhibitors in CL1-0 human lung cancer cells

Fig. 9

Schematic diagram displays the proposed mechanisms of action of HS7 in CL1-0 lung cancer cells. Through inhibition of AKT-mTOR, ERK and STAT3 signaling pathways, the active fraction HS7 from T. camphoratus increases the CDK inhibitors (p15, p21 and p27) and leads to cell cycle suppression and apoptosis induction. References for the proposed inhibition or enhancement are indicated along the arrow or T-bar.
