This phenomenon was attributed to inhibition of the proteasomal and protease-induced breakdown of misfolded N-CoR by curcumin. Curcumin is, however, a modest inhibitor and affected the viability of APL cells at micromolar concentrations. Modifying curcumin at its conjugated β-diketone linker and terminal phenyl rings yielded potent congeners with sub-micromolar growth inhibitory activities which selectively kill APL cells over non-APL leukemic and nonmalignant cells. Analogues with pronounced APL-selective anti-proliferative activities, as observed in representative dibenzylidenecyclohexanones and dibenzylidenecyclopentanones, strongly promoted the accumulation of misfolded and nonfunctional N-CoR at significantly lower concentrations than their growth inhibitory IC50 values. These compounds also inhibited the human 20S proteasome in an enzyme-based assay, thus providing convincing support for the prevailing hypothesis that impeding the degradation of N-CoR is a key mechanistic event contributing to APL cell death. © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
