MCP110 is an Inhibitor of Ras/Raf-1 Interaction

Ras is a small GTPase and interacts with the protein Raf to create activated Ras-Raf complex that activates the downstream effectors in the ERK pathway. Malfunctioning Ras-Raf switches cause cancer. Ras-Raf interaction has taken a center stage in cancer research. Ras is a peripheral membrane protein that acts as...

JNJ-64619178 is a Selective PRMT5 Inhibitor with Potent Activity In Lung Cancer

Protein arginine methylation, a common post-translational modification, involves in numerous cellular processes including transcription, DNA repair, mRNA splicing and signal transduction. Protein arginine methyltransferases (PRMTs) catalyze arginine methylation on both chromatin-bound and cytoplasmic proteins. Currently, there are nine protein arginine methyltransferases (PRMTs) encoded in mammalian genomes. Each PRMT isoform...
