Small molecules that reconstitute the binding mode(s) of a protein and in doing so elicit a programmed functional response offer considerable advantages in the control of complex biological processes. The development challenges of such molecules are significant, however. Many protein-protein interactions require multiple points of contact over relatively(More)
Artificial transcriptional activators are excellent tools for studying the mechanistic details of transcriptional regulation. Furthermore, as the correlation between a wide range of human diseases and misregulated transcription becomes increasingly evident, such molecules may in the long run serve as the basis for transcription-based therapeutic agents.

The link between a growing number of human diseases and misregulation of gene expression has spurred intense interest in artificial transcriptional activators that could be used to restore controlled expression of affected genes. To expand the repertoire of activation domains available for the construction of artificial transcriptional regulators, a(More)
