The therapeutic effects of abemaciclib (ABE), an inhibitor of cyclin- dependent kinases (CDK) 4/6, on the proliferation of two types of prostate cancer (PC) cells were revealed. In this study, in vitro cytotoxic and apoptotic effects of ABE on metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) androgen receptor (AR) negative PC-3 and AR mutant LNCaP PC cells were analyzed with WST-1, Annexin V, cell cycle, reactive oxygen species (ROS), mitochondrial membrane potential, RT-PCR, western blot, and apoptosis protein array. ABE considerably inhibited the growth of PC cells in a dose-dependent manner (p<0. Read More
