S2116 is a Potent Lysine-Specific Demethylase 1 (LSD1) Inhibitor

Lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) is a human protein encoded by the kdm1a gene. Specifically, LSD1 is a flavin-dependent monoamine oxidase that demethylates monomethyl and dimethyllysine, especially H3K4 and H3K9. Besides, LSD1 regulates a variety of biological processes through dual function regulation of enhancer function. Overexpression of LSD1 is a...

A-366 is a Potent Histone Methyltransferase G9a Inhibitor

Epigenetic alterations to the genome take place via modifications to the DNA or histones. Meanwhile, those modifications lead to changes in gene expression. Generally, histone lysine methylation is a prominent kind of epigenetic regulation for change of the structure chromatin and gene expression. HMTs have recently generated increasing interest...
