Biological Activity for UNC 0642
UNC 0642 is a potent and selective G9a and GLP histone lysine methyltransferase inhibitor (IC50 < 2.5 nM) that exhibits >2,000-fold selectivity for G9a and GLP over PRC2-EZH2 and >20,000-fold selectivity over other methyltransferases. UNC 0642 reduces H3K9 dimethylation levels in MDA-MB-231 cells (IC50 = 110 nM), and displays modest brain penetration in vivo.
This probe is supplied in conjunction with the Structural Genomics Consortium. For further characterization details, please visit the UNC 0642 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.
