Demethoxycurcumin (DMC) is one of the main active compounds of curcuminoids found in turmeric powder, which is used as a spice in Asian cooking and traditional medicine, has anti-inflammation and anti-cancer activities, the mechanism of DMC-mediated anti-invasive activity involves modulation of the expression of invasion-associated proteins, possibly by targeting NF-κB in MDA-MB-231 cells.[1]
Demethoxycurcumin has the relative potency for suppression of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-induced nuclear factor-B (NF-B) activation, the relative potency is curcumin > demethoxycurcumin> bisdemethoxycurcumin, they also exhibit variable anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative activities, which do not correlate with their ability to modulate the ROS status.[2]
Demethoxycurcumin, curcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin have pro-oxidant, anti-oxidant and cleavage activities on DNA .[3]
Demethoxycurcumin (DMC) has differential potency for inhibition of cancer cell invasion, the differential potency is BDMC> or =DMC>Cur, whereas the cell migration is not affected, shows higher antimetastasis potency than curcumin by the differentially down-regulation of ECM degradation enzymes.[4]
Demethoxycurcumin exerts its in vitro anti-inflammatory effect in LPS-activated N9 microglial cells by blocking nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) and MAPKs activation, which may be partly due to its potent down-regulation of the NADPH-derived iROS production.[5]
Demethoxycurcumin can induce the apoptosis of human lung cancer NCI-H460 cells through the mitochondrial-dependent pathway, it may be used as a novel anticancer agent for the treatment of lung cancer in the future.[6]
