CPTH2 is a Potent Histone Acetyltransferase (HAT) Inhibitor

Histone acetyltransferase (HATS) is an enzyme that acetylates the conserved lysine amino acids in histones by transferring acetyl from acetyl coenzyme A toε-N-acetyllysine. Several chromatin modifiers are responsible for adding different post-translational marks like acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation. Specifically, HATS add lysine at the N-terminal of acetyl histones H3 and...

BI-4924 is a Selective PHGDH Inhibitor

Phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase (PHGDH) is an essential enzyme catalyzing the synthesis of amino acid serine. PHGDH is important for maintaining the poorly differentiated, stem-like state of cancer stem-like cells (CSLCs). Typically, high levels of PHGDH associate with enhanced proliferation and poor prognosis in various types of cancers. As a result,...
