Potent and selective BRD4 bromodomain inhibitor (Ki = 30 - 50 nM for the first bromodomain (BRD4(1)). Exhibits 10-fold selectivity for BRD4(1) over BRD4(2). Blocks BRD4 transcriptional activity in lipopolysaccharide-induced production of both nitric oxide and IL-6 in mouse macrophages (IC50 values are 3.8 and 4.9 μM, respectively). Attenuates melanoma cell proliferation in vitro.

Epigenetics Scientific Review
Written by Susanne Müller-Knapp and Peter J. Brown, this review gives an overview of the development of chemical probes for epigenetic targets, as well as the impact of these tool compounds being made available to the scientific community. In addition, their biological effects are also discussed. Epigenetic compounds available from Tocris are listed.
Epigenetics Research Bulletin
Produced by Tocris and updated in 2014, the epigenetics research bulletin gives an introduction into mechanisms of epigenetic regulation, and highlights key Tocris products for epigenetics targets including:
- DNA Methyltransferases

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
