Biological Activity for UNC 0638
UNC 0638 is a selective inhibitor of G9a and GLP histone lysine methyltransferases (IC50 values are < 15 nM and 19 nM for G9a and GLP respectively, and > 10000 nM for a range of other histone methyltransferases). Potently inhibits dimethylation of H3K9 in MCF-7 cells (IC50 = 70 nM). Restores metabolic and antiviral function in exhausted CD8+ T cells from patients with chronic HCV infection. Cell permeable.
This probe is supplied in conjunction with the Structural Genomics Consortium. For further characterization details, please visit the UNC 0638 probe summary on the SGC website.

Epigenetics in Cancer Poster
Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide Edition 3, this poster summarizes the main epigenetic targets in cancer. The dysregulation of epigenetic modifications has been shown to result in oncogenesis and cancer progression. Unlike genetic mutations, epigenetic alterations are considered to be reversible and thus make promising therapeutic targets.
