Objective: Proteasomal system is the primary protein degradation mechanism and important for cellular homeostasis. On the other hand, increased proteasome activity protects cancer cells from cell death. The objective of this preliminary study was to determine the response of the proteasomal system to oxidative stress in human cancer cell lines including K562 chronic myelogenous leukemia, U251 glioblastoma, DU145 prostate cancer, HepG2C3A hepatoma, and MCF7 breast cancer.
