Demethoxycurcumin is a curcumin derivative with anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative properties. It suppresses tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-induced nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) activation in KBM-5 cells at 25 μM. It inhibits proliferation of different cell lines such as Jurkat, U937, KBM-5 and H1299 at 25 μM. It suppresses transcriptional coactivator p300 and inhibits the Wnt/beta-catenin pathway.
