Therapeutic insights into “awakening the sleeping/cancer-protecting angels” in mutant p53-expressing human tumors: Kuwanon V, one of the constituents of Mulberry, increases the expression of tumor suppressor p53 homologue TA-p73/p63, PTEN, TPM1, TIMP3, BTG2, PDCD4, SPRY1/2 and CCM1/KRIT1 and induces regression of p53-mutated human tumors via down regulation of its target gene, 13/December/2016, 11.35 pm

From Significance of the study to Public health relevance:

Given that: (1) Cancer suppressor p53 is mutated in more than 50% of human cancers of different tissue origin; (2) p53 pathway is altered in about 80% of tumors.; (3) our understanding is incomplete in terms of molecular targets and the oncogenic/malignant pathways involved in mutant p53-overexpressing tumors; (4) cancer causes the highest economic loss compared to all the known causes of death worldwide; and (5) cancer causes the considerable economic loss worldwide, there is an urgent need to find: (i) a cheaper alternative to the existing expensive drugs; (ii) a side-effect-free natural product-based drug; and (iii) a way to effectively treat and stall metastatic progression and relapse of mutant p53-overexpressing human cancers.


From therapeutic strategy to Research Findings:

(i) Therapeutic strategy: 

This study suggests a therapeutic strategy for stalling the progression of p53-deficient/deleted or mutant-p53 expressing metastatic cancers. By activating tumor suppressor p53’s unmutated “homologous protein such as TAp73/p63” in p53-deficient or mutant-p53 expressing metastatic cancer cells, one can stall their progression.

(ii) Research findings:  

Kuwanon V, by increasing the expression of its target genes, it may not only increase the expression of tumor suppressors genes, such as TAp73, TAp63, PTEN, etc., but also increase a number of metastatic suppressor genes, such as TPM1, TIMP3, BTG2, PDCD4, SPRY1/2, CCM1/KRIT1 etc. Thereby, it may inhibit the migration and invasion of metastatic cancer cells expressing mutant-p53 (figure1).

Figure 1.  Kuwanon-v, found in Mulberry, functions as an activator of  tumor suppressor genes, such as TAp73, TAp63, PTEN, PDCD4, BTG2, etc., and metastatic suppressor genes, such as TPM1, TIMP3, SPRY1/2 etc., in human metastatic mutant-p53 expressing tumors


Therapeutic opportunity:

Given the ability of Kuwanon V to induce the expression of TAp73, TAp63, PTEN, TPM1, TIMP3, BTG2, PDCD4, SPRY1/2, CCM1/KRIT1, long ncRNA Gas5 in p53-mutated human tumors, pharmacological formulations encompassing Kuwanon V or its analogues or Kuwanon V in combination with any of the known anticancer agents” may be used to inhibit the progression of p53-mutated invasive metastatic tumors.
