Activation of hypoxia-inducible factor 1 α (HIF-1α) is frequently observed in solid tumors and associated with numerous pathophysiological processes, including of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). We previously found that parthenolide (PT), a strong nuclear factor-?B (NF-?B) inhibitor, has recently been demonstrated to be a promising anticancer agent, promoting apoptosis of human colorectal cancer (CRC). Herein, we explored a new molecular mechanism of PT for HIF-1α and HIF-1 α contributing to EMT by NF-kB inhibition.
