Cell penetrant Proteolysis Targeting Chimera (PROTAC) compound based on (+)-JQ1 (Cat.No. 4499) conjugated to a von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) ligand. Retains high affinity for BRD2, BRD3 and BRD4 bromodomains (Kd = 13-60 nM) but induces preferential degradation of BRD4 over BRD2 and BRD3 (DC50 values for degradation of BRD4 are 8 and 23 nM in H661 and H838 cells, respectively). Exhibits potent cytotoxicity and antiproliferative effects in AML cell lines (pEC50 = 7.6 in Mv4;11 cells). Negative control cis MZ 1 also available.
PROTACs are bi-functional small molecules that harness the ubiquitin/proteasome system (UPS) to selectively and catalytically remove target proteins from cells.

Programmed Cell Death Poster
There are two currently recognized forms of programmed cell death: apoptosis and necroptosis. This poster summarizes the signaling pathways involved in apoptosis, necroptosis and cell survival following death receptor activation, and highlights the influence of the molecular switch, cFLIP, on cell fate.
