PINT87aa, a Potential Tumor-Suppressive Peptide, Directly Interacts with the PAF1 Complex

Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are a large class of transcripts in the mammalian genome.  CircRNAs are inherently resistant to exonuclease activity (resulting in higher stability than linear RNAs) and often show tissue- or developmental stage-specific expression. It suggests that they possess important biological functions. To date, circRNAs can act as microRNA...

AMG-458 is a Selective and Orally Bioavailable c-Met Inhibitor

C-met is a protein encoded by a met gene in humans, which has tyrosine kinase activity. Specifically, Met is an essential one-way tyrosine kinase receptor for embryonic development, organogenesis, and wound healing. Besides, C-met is a receptor tyrosine kinase that can be activated by its ligand, hepatocyte growth factor/dispersion...

JCN037 is a Non-Covalent and Brain-Penetrant EGFR Inhibitor

The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a transmembrane protein that is a receptor for members of the EGF family of extracellular protein ligands. In many cancer types, mutations affecting EGFR expression or activity could result in cancer. Specifically, EGFR gene changes occurred in nearly 60% of glioblastoma tumors....

TED-347 is an Irreversible and Covalent YAP-TEAD Protein-Protein Interaction Inhibitor

Yap1, also known as Yap, is a protein that acts as a transcription regulator by activating the transcription of genes involved in cell proliferation and inhibiting apoptosis. Specifically, Yap1 is inhibited in the hippopotamus signaling pathway, which can control organ size and inhibit tumors. Besides, hippopotamus signaling regulates Yap1...

AMG 511 is an Orally Active pan-PI3K Inhibitor

The PI3K signaling network has a central role in several cellular processes critical to the initiation and progression of cancer, including growth, survival, and metabolism. The PI3K family catalyzes the phosphorylation of phosphatidylinositol-4,5-diphosphate to phosphatidylinositol-3,4,5-triphosphate, a secondary messenger that plays a critical role in important cellular functions such as...
