G5-7, an Orally Active JAK2 Inhibitor, Induces Cell Cycle Arrest and Apoptosis

JAK2 and STAT3 have been extensively implicated in the development and progression of numerous cancers. STAT3 be also activated by EGFR, JAK2, and other TYKs activated by EGF, LIF, and other cytokines. STAT3 constitutively activats in 60% of primary malignant gliomas, and the extent of activation correlates with glioma...

M8891 is an Orally Active and Brain Penetrant MetAP-2 Inhibitor

Removal of N-terminal methionine by methionine aminopeptidases (MetAP) is a crucial step in the maturation of proteins during protein biosynthesis. Besides, MetAP-2 is one of the two cytoplasmic methionine aminopeptidases expressed in mammalian cells. Moreover, MetAP-2 acts as a target of the highly potent and irreversible inhibitor fumagillin to...
