Cat. No. 5132
Chemical Name: 2-(4,4-Difluoro-1-piperidinyl)-6-me
Biological ActivityPotent and selective G9a and GLP histone lysine methyltransferase inhibitor (IC50 < 2.5 nM). Exhibits >2,000-fold selectivity for G9a and GLP over PRC2-EZH2 and >20,000-fold selectivity over other methyltransferases. Reduces H3K9 dimethylation levels in MDA-MB-231 cells (IC50 = 110 nM). Displays modest brain penetration in vivo.
