Modulatory effects of curcumin on heat shock proteins in cancer: A promising therapeutic approach
MetadataShow full item record
Cancer metastasis represents a multistep process, including alteration of cell adhesion/motility in the microenvironment and sustained angiogenesis, which is essential for supporting cancer growth in tissues that are distant from the primary tumor. There is growing evidence suggesting that heat shock proteins (HSPs) (also known as heat stress proteins), which constitute a family of stress-inducible proteins, may be involved in the pathogenesis of cancer. Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) is a potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antitumor agent. Curcumin has been shown to regulate different members of HSPs including HSP27, HSP40, HSP60, HSP70, and HSP90 in cancer. Here, we present extent findings suggesting that curcumin may act as a potential therapeutic agent for the treatment of cancer through its regulation of HSPs. © 2019 International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
