CTPI-2 is a Mitochondrial Citrate Carrier SLC25A1 Inhibitor

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and inflammatory steatohepatitis (NASH) comprise a series of manifestations that span from reversible hepatic steatosis to progressive necroinflammatory and fibrotic disease. There exists a clear association between NASH with obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. Slc25a1 is a mitochondrial citrate carrier, which belongs to a...

TAI-1 is an Orally Active and Highly Potent Hec1 Inhibitor

Hec1 (Ndc80) is one of the outer kinetochore proteins and forms heterotetramers with proteins NUF2, SPC25, and SPC24. Specifically, drugs that interfere with mitosis are part of the most successful chemotherapeutic compounds for cancer in clinical practice. Hec1, a component of mitochondria, is overexpressed in a variety of human...

NXT629 is a Selective and Competitive PPARα Antagonist

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) are ligand-activated transcription factors that belong to the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily. Of these, PPARα mainly expresses in the liver, where it activates fatty acid catabolism. PPARδ expresses ubiquitously and implicates in fatty acid oxidation and keratinocyte differentiation. PPARγ2 expresses exclusively in adipose tissue and...
