SIAIS178 is a Potent and Selective PROTAC-Based BCR-ABL Degrader

Proteolysis targeting chimeras (PROTACs) work by inducing selective intracellular proteolysis rather than acting as a conventional enzyme inhibitor. Besides, PROTACs consists of two covalently linked protein-binding molecules. One can engage an E3 ubiquitin ligase, and another binds to a target protein meant for degradation. Moreover, PROTACs need only to...

A 419259 is a Potent Src Inhibitor

Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is a human malignancy and affects hematopoietic progenitor cells. The CML is driven by Bcr-Abl. Additionally, Bcr-Abl is a 210 kDa chimeric tyrosine kinase that transforms fibroblasts, growth factor-dependent hematopoietic cell lines. Bcr-Abl is a constitutively active protein-tyrosine kinase and can stimulate the proliferation and...
