    Proposed molecular mechanism for the effect of β-elemene on cisplatin chemosensitivity in human ovarian carcinoma cells. In the proposed mechanism shown here, β-elemene mediates altered DNA repair activity and cisplatin sensitivity in human ovarian carcinoma cells by blocking cisplatin-induced PI3K/JNK and PI3K/Akt activation, thereby preventing from the activation of the downstream signaling components such as AP-1 and NF-κB. This leads to decreased DNA-repair activity and increased caspase activity, respectively, which both confer sensitization of resistant ovarian cancer cells to the chemotherapeutic agent cisplatin.
