Biochem/physiol Actions

Manumycin A is a natural monomeric epoxyquinoid. It has an ability to inhibit tumor necrosis factor (TNF) induced IκB kinase (IKK) activity in various cell types. In addition, manumycin A exhibits anti-tumor property by inhibiting farnesylation of oncogenic Ras.
Potent inhibitor of Ras farnesyltransferase.

A microbial screen using a yeast strain with conditional deficiency in the GPA1 gene was carried out to search for inhibitors of protein farnesyltransferase (PFT). A strain of Streptomyces was found to produce active compounds named UCF1-A, UCF1-B, and UCF1-C....

We have recently reported that Ras acts as an intermediate coactivator in IL-1β-mediated hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) activation in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Since HIF-1α plays a crucial role in linking inflammatory and oncogenic pathways, we investigated whether this IL1β-Ras-HIF-1α signaling axis...
