  • Antibiotic [1].
  • Potent anticancer compound [1, 7].
  • Cell permeable, potent, selective and irreversible 20S proteasome inhibitor. Predominantly inhibits the chymotrypsin-like (CTRL) activity of the proteasome. Exhibits lower level inhibition of proteasome trypsin-like and caspase-like activitives (100 and 1,000-fold slower rates respectively) [2, 3].
  • Anti-inflammatory [4].
  • Antimicrobial and antimalarial [8].
  • Anti-parasitic [9].
  • Stimulates bone formation by inhibiting osteoblast proteasome activity [5].
  • Induces Parkinson's-like symptoms in rats [6].
  • The ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) and autophagy serve as two complementary, reciprocally regulated protein degradation systems. Blockade of UPS by Epoxomicin activates autophagy.
  • Blocks the Thymoproteasome β5t subunit activity.
