Potent and SAM-competitive EZH2/EZH1 lysine methyltransferase inhibitor (IC50 values are 2 and 45 nM respectively). Selective for EZH2/EZH1 over a panel of other methyltransferases and non-epigenetic targets. Reduces H3K27me3 levels in vitro. Prolongs survival of MLL-AF9 bearing mice. Orally bioavailable.
This probe is supplied in conjunction with the Structural Genomics Consortium. For further characterization details, please visit the UNC 1999 probe summary on the SGC website.
