Abstract: AbstractEpithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is an infrequent but highly lethal disease, almost invariably treated with platinum‐based therapies. Improving the response to platinum represents a great challenge, since it could significantly impact on patient survival. Here, we report that silencing or pharmacological inhibition of CDK6 increases EOC cell sensitivity to platinum. We observed that, upon platinum treatment, CDK6 phosphorylated and stabilized the transcription factor FOXO3, eventually inducing ATR trans…
