Chemical Name: N-(1-Cyclohexyl-4-piperidinyl)-2-[hexahydro-4-(1-methylethyl)-1H-1,4-diazepin-1-yl]-6-methoxy-7-[3-(1-piperidinyl)propoxy]-4-quinazolinamine

Biological Activity

Potent and selective inhibitor of the homologous protein lysine methyltransferases, G9a and GLP (IC50 values are 6 nM and 15 nM for G9a and GLP, respectively). Potently blocks G9a/GLP methyltransferase activity in cells (IC50 = 10 nM in MCF7 cells); exhibits low cellular toxicity (EC50 = 4.7 μM in MCF7 cells). Selective for G9a/GLP over a range of other protein lysine methyltransferases and protein arginine methyltransferases.

Technical Data

Soluble to 100 mM in DMSO and to 100 mM in ethanol
>99 %
Store at +4°C
