2 Curcumin ? An acitve polyphenol derived from the plant turmeric low toxicityanti-inflammatoryantioxidantantiangiogenicantitumourCurcuminThyroid cancer?Chemical structure of curcumin
3 Apoptosis and Autophagy Apoptosis –type I programmed cell deathAutophagy- type II programmed cell death- a self-degradative process- cope with stresses- required in apoptotic-deficient cellsThree types of autophgay:MicroautophagyChaperone-mediated autophagyMacroautopahgy
21 Conclusions Curcumin induces cytotoxicity of BCPAP cells. Induction of apoptosis and autophagy as the likely underlying mechanism that is responsible for the cytotoxicity of curcumin .Curcumin inhibited AKT pathway and activated mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling thereby inducing autophagy.
