MPT0G211 is an Orally Active and Selective HDAC6 Inhibitor

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases, accounting for more than 80% of dementia cases worldwide. AD leads to the progressive loss of mental capacity and behavior, with a functional decline in the ability to learn. HDAC6 belongs to the HDAC family, and its structure contains...

EW-7195 is a Specific ALK5 (TGFβR1) Inhibitor with Anti-Metastasis Activity

Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality among women in Korea, England, and the United States of America. Invasion and metastasis are the most lethal characteristics of breast cancer. TGF-β signaling maintains homeostasis and elicits tumor-suppressive responses such as growth inhibition and apoptosis in normal mammary epithelial...

ZINC69391 is a Specific Rac1 Inhibitor and Apoptosis Inducer

Rho-GTPases are molecular switches that cycle between an inactive GDP-bound form and an active GTP-bound form. Guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) catalyze nucleotide exchange and mediate activation in this cycle, While GTPase-activating proteins (GAPs) stimulate GTP hydrolysis and inactivate the GTPase. Only the active GTP-bound state binds to downstream...

ZLDI-8, an ADAM-17 and Notch Inhibitor, Enhances Chemotherapeutic Effects

ADAM metallopeptidase domain 17 (ADAM17) is an enzyme that belongs to the ADAM protein family of metalloproteases. ADAM17 plays a prominent role in the Notch signaling pathway. In this study, researchers demonstrated the discovery of ZLDI-8. ZLDI-8 is a novel inhibitor for Notch activating/cleaving enzyme ADAM-17. In particular, ZLDI-8...

6RK73 is a Covalent Irreversible and Specific UCHL1 Inhibitor

Approximately 90% of breast cancer-related deaths are due to metastasis. During the metastasis process, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) plays an important role. The secreted cytokine transforming growth factor-β (TGFβ) can induce it. Breast cancer has multiple subtypes with distinct metastatic potential based on genetic and clinical features. The most aggressive...

PI-103 is a Potent PI3K and mTOR Inhibitor

The phosphatidylinositide 3-kinase family possesses 15 members. those members consist of four distinct classes as a basis on their structure and biological properties. As we all know, this highly conserved family of enzymes involves various aspects of cellular homeostasis and exists a decline in a number of pathophysiologic conditions....
