While fatty acid synthase (FASN) has been shown to be expressed in many human solid tumors, FASN has also been identified in preneoplastic lesions. HER2, which has also been identified in preneoplastic breast lesions, has been shown to upregulate FASN expression. Osthole, an active constituent isolated from the fruit of Cnidium monnieri (L.) Cusson, a traditional Chinese medicine, was found to be effective in suppressing FASN expression in HER2-overexpressing breast cells. Osthole preferentially inhibited proliferation and induced apoptosis in HER2-overexpressing cancer cells. Moreover, osthole inhibited the phosphorylation of Akt and mTOR. The use of Akt-overexpression revealed that the modulation of Akt and mTOR was required for osthole-induced FASN suppression. Finally, we showed that osthole could enhance paclitaxel-induced cytotoxicity in HER2-overexpressing cancer cells. These results suggested that osthole has the potential to advance as chemopreventive or chemotherapeutic agent for cancers that overexpress HER2.
