RA-9 is a Selective Proteasome-Associated DUBs Inhibitor

The ubiquitin-proteasome-system (UPS) is responsible for most of the intracellular protein degradation in eukaryotes. UPS consists of three components: the proteasomes, the ubiquitin conjugating system, and the deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs). DUBs deconjugate ubiquitin from targeted proteins and this step is essential for protein degradation. The de-ubiquitination is required for...

UT-34 is an Orally Active pan-Androgen Receptor Degrader (SARD)

Prostate cancer drugs targeting the androgen receptor (AR) are mainly competitive ligand-binding domain (LBD) binding antagonists. A common mechanism of drug resistance can inactivate it. Specifically, AR is a nuclear receptor that is activated by binding to any androgen. In addition, radical prostatectomy combined with gonadotropin and androgen synthetase...

ARCC-4 is a Highly Potent PROTAC Androgen Receptor Degrader

Androgen receptor (AR) signaling is crucial for normal prostate development. It also drives the growth and survival of prostate cancer cells. AR signaling suppression is a common strategy for treating prostate cancer. Like other occupancy-based inhibitors, the antiandrogen enzalutamide requires high saturating drug concentrations to achieve its clinical benefit....
