Biological Activity

Anti-tumor agent that binds wild-type p53 (Kd = 1.5 nM) preventing p53-MDM2 (HDM2) interaction. Induces p53 accumulation and stimulates apoptosis in tumor cell lines expressing wild-type p53 in vitro and in vivo. Inhibits HPV-E6-mediated proteasomal degradation. Suppresses expression of cervical carcinoma HeLa xenografts in vivo.

Programmed Cell Death

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.

Targeted Protein Degradation

Targeted Protein Degradation Poster

Degraders (e.g. PROTACs) are bifunctional small molecules, that harness the Ubiquitin Proteasome System (UPS) to selectively degrade target proteins within cells. They consist of three covalently linked components: an E3 ubiquitin ligase ligand, a linker and a ligand for the target protein of interest. Authored in-house, this poster outlines the generation of a toolbox of building blocks for the development of Degraders. The characteristics and selection of each of these components are discussed.
