Proteasome inhibitors bind to the proteasome and prevent degradation of multiple proteins involved in various signaling cascades. The accumulation of unfolded proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum induces pro-apoptotic pathways and cell stress, thereby inducing apoptosis. Typical examples of proteasome inhibitors are bortezomib and carfilzomib.
