Curcumol ((-)-Curcumol), a bioactive sesquiterpenoid, possesses numerous pharmacological activities like anticancer, antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral, and antiinflammatory. Curcumol is a potent inducer of apoptosis in numerous cancer cells via targeting key signaling pathways as MAPK/ERK, PI3K/Akt and NF-κB which are generally deregulated in several cancers.

How to use

In Vitro:

Curcumol ((-)-Curcumol) is the major component extracted from root of Rhizoma Curcumae. Curcumol exerts anticancer effect in cholangiocarcinoma cells via down-regulating CDKL3 . Curcumol induces cell cycle arrest in colon cancer cells via reactive oxygen species and Akt/ GSK3β/cyclin D1 pathway . Curcumol suppresses breast cancer cell metastasis by inhibiting MMP-9 via JNK1/2 and Akt-dependent NF-κB signaling pathways.
