Singh AK, Misra K., In silico interactions of curcumin with human papilloma virus 16 E6 protein cancer, Onl J Vet Res., 23 (3):251-257, 2022. Curcumin (diferuloyl methane) and its naturally occurring analogs viz. demethoxy, bis-demethoxy and cyclo-curcumin, in rhizomes of Curcuma inhibit proliferation of tumor cells. In silico binding with active sites on HPV E6 protein could be a target to restore tumor suppression of p53 and apoptosis of infected cells. This protein is 158 amino acids long in oral and cervical cancers and may inhibit oral and cervical cancer.
