Leukemia cells aberrantly overexpress senescence-suppression telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) and down-regulate key senescence-promoting genes to escape complete senescence, resulting in immortalization and malignant progression. Accordingly, induction of complete senescence is a sensible strategy for anti-leukemia therapy. However, effective senescence-based anti-leukemia drugs with low toxicity are currently lacking. In this study, we found that triptonide (chemical name diterpene triepoxide), a small molecule derived from the herb Tripterygium wilfordii Hook, strongly induced complete senescence in cultured acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cell lines, and potently inhibited growth and colony formation of U937 and HL-60 AML cell line with IC50 values of 7...

Celastrol, isolated from the traditional Chinese medicinal herb Tripterygium wilfordii Hook. f. (Thunder God's Vine), has been used to treat cancer, chronic inflammatory, autoimmune and other human diseases. However, to date, the protein targets and the mechanism of action of celastrol have remained elusive. In this study, we find that celastrol can react with protein thiols in a unique covalent and reversible manner, while protein denaturing disrupts the interaction. Through a competitive chemoproteomics approach utilizing a cysteine-targeting activity-based probe, we report the proteome-wide quantitative profiling of cellular targets of celastrol in human cervical cancer HeLa cells...

Abnormal activation of canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling is implicated in many diseases including cancer. As a result, therapeutic agents that disrupt this signaling pathway have been highly sought after. Triptonide is a key bioactive small molecule identified in a traditional Chinese medicine named Tripterygium wilfordii Hook F., and it has a broad spectrum of biological functions. Here we show that triptonide can effectively inhibit canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling by targeting the downstream C-terminal transcription domain of β-catenin or a nuclear component associated with β-catenin...
