Ancient drug curcumin impedes 26S proteasome activity by direct inhibition of dual-specificity tyrosine-regulated kinase 2
Curcumin is an ancient drug derived from turmeric and has been found to exhibit potent anticancer properties albeit through controversial mechanisms of action. Using a biochemical model, mouse cancer model, and cellular models, we show that curcumin is a highly potent and selective inhibitor of dual-specificity tyrosine-regulated kinase 2 (DYRK2), a positive regulator of the 26S proteasome. Curcumin perturbs 26S proteasome activity via DYRK2 inhibition in various cancer cells and in the mouse... www.pnas.org/content/early/...
