Abstract:

Deguelin is a natural compound of the flavonoid family products isolated fromLour. or(Leguminosae). It exhibited significant anti-tumorigenesis and anti-proliferative activity in various types of cancer bothand. Deguelin induced cell apoptosis by blocking anti-apoptotic pathways, such as PI3K-Akt, IKK-IκBα-NF-κB and AMPK-mTOR-survivin, while inhibiting tumor cell propagation and malignant transformation through p27-cyclinE-pRb-E2F1 cell cycle control and HIF-1α-VEGF anti-angiogenic pathways. In pre-clinical trials, deguelin markedly decreased the tumor incidence. These biological findings identified deguelin as a novel anti-tumorigenic agent targeting apoptosis, cell cycle arrest and anti-angiogenesis for cancer chemoprevention and chemotherapy.
