p21-activated kinase 1 (Pak1) - a serine/threonine kinase, is a well-known regulator of cytoskeletal remodelling, cell motility, cell proliferation, and cell survival, which can induce phosphorylation and activation of NF-κB, that can accelerate growth and survival of cells. Our previous study have implicated that Pak1 by itself can have an oncogenic role in pancreatic cancer through Pak1-NF-kappaB-p65?fibronectin pathway. Hence agents blocking downstream target of Pak1, namely NF-κB and its activation, may reduce the invasiveness of pancreatic cancer. To test this hypothesis, we used BAY 11-7082 a known NF-κB inhibitor and an anti inflammatory drug for the study. In the present study, we found BAY 11-7082 inhibited migration and invasive capability of Pak1 over expressing pancreatic cell lines through blocking p65 NF-κB- Fibronectin pathway. We also observed reduced fibronectin promoter activity on BAY 11-7082 treatment. Thus, the inactivation of NF-κB pathway, downregulated fibronectin expression and reduces the metastasis potential of Pak1 over expressing pancreatic cancer, indicating targeting Pak1-NF-kappaB-p65?fibronectin pathway might be an efficient treatment modality for pancreatic cancer patients.
