Biological Activity for VZ 185

VZ 185 is a potent and selective VHL-based dual Degrader (PROTAC®) of BRD7/9 (DC50 values are 4 and 34 nM for BRD7 and BRD9, respectively). Exhibits selectivity for BRD7/9 degradation over other bromodomain-containing proteins and other BAF/PBAF subunits. Displays cytotoxicity towards EOL-1 and A-204 cancer cell lines.

Negative control cis VZ 185 (Cat. No. 6939) and BRD7 antibody validated for Western Blot also available: Catalog # NBP1-28727.

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.
