Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Chetomin is a natural metabolite produced by several species of the genus Chaetomium. Chetomin is an epidithiodioxopiperazine known to disrupt the hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) pathway. Chetomin blocks the interaction of HIF1α and HIF2α with transcriptional co-activators p300 and cAMP response element binding (CREB) binding protein (CBP), thereby attenuating hypoxia-inducible transcription. Disrupting the ability of tumors to adapt to hypoxia leads to decreased tumor growth and can serve as an antitumor stratagy. Chetomin also suppresses the proliferation of LPS-induced mouse spleen lymphocytes.

Disrupting the ability of tumors to adapt to hypoxia leads to decreased tumor growth; hypoxia can also promote resistance to radiotherapeutics. By both of these mechanisms, chetomin shows promise as a lead compound in antitumor research. Chetomin also suppresses the proliferation of LPS-induced mouse spleen lymphocytes.
