Novel Anti-Angiogenic Compounds for Application in Tumor Therapy – COP9 Signalosome-Associated Kinases as Possible Targets

Author(s): Chris Braumann, Judith Tangermann, Christoph A. Jacobi, Joachim M. Muller, Wolfgang Dubiel.

Abstract:

Preclinical studies revealed that curcumin, the yellow curry pigment, emodin, a compound derived from grapes, and taurolidine, derived from a biogenic amino acid, and some of their structural homologs possess anti-angiogenic and cancer chemopreventive properties. Whereas curcumin and emodin can act via inhibition of COP9 signalosome-associated kinases, taurolidine blocks protein biosynthesis.

Keywords: Angiogenesis, tumor, COP9 signalosome, curcumin, emodin, taurolidine
