Scientific Background :The PI3K comprises of a 110 kDa catalytic subunit and an 85 kDa regulatory subunit. A number of isoforms of the 110 kDa catalytic subunit and the 85 kDa regulatory subunit exist in cells. The p110 alpha catalytic subunit (PIK3CA) is frequently mutated or amplified in a variety of cancers including ovarian and colon and this protein is one of the PI3K mutants (1). PIK3CA gene copy number is increased in over 30% of ovarian cancers and this leads to increased PI3-kinase activity. Furthermore, the activity of p110 alpha is essential for vascular development and inactivation of p110 alpha leads to severe defects in angiogenic sprouting and vascular remodeling (2).
