Potent and selective inhibitor of the homologous protein lysine methyltransferases, G9a and GLP (IC50 values are 6 nM and 15 nM for G9a and GLP, respectively). Potently blocks G9a/GLP methyltransferase activity in cells (IC50 = 10 nM in MCF7 cells); exhibits low cellular toxicity (EC50 = 4.7 μM in MCF7 cells). Selective for G9a/GLP over a range of other protein lysine methyltransferases and protein arginine methyltransferases.

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.
