We describe the discovery of UNC1215, a potent and selective chemical probe for the methyllysine (Kme) reading function of L3MBTL3, a member of the malignant brain tumor (MBT) family of chromatin-interacting transcriptional repressors. UNC1215 binds L3MBTL3 with a K(d) of 120 nM, competitively displacing mono- or dimethyllysine-containing peptides, and is(More)
Methyllysine histone code readers constitute a new promising group of potential drug targets. For instance, L3MBTL1, a malignant brain tumor (MBT) protein, selectively binds mono- and di-methyllysine epigenetic marks (KMe, KMe(2) ) that eventually results in the negative regulation of multiple genes through the E2F/Rb oncogenic pathway. There is a pressing(More)
The intricate pattern of chemical modifications on DNA and histones, the " histone code " , is considered to be a key gene regulation factor. Multivalency is seen by many as an essential instrument to transmit the " encoded " information to the transcription machinery via multi-domain effector proteins and chromatin-associated complexes. However, as(More)
Automated docking and three-dimensional Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship studies (3D QSAR) were performed for a series of 82 reversible, competitive and selective acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors. The suggested automated docking technique, making use of constraints taken from experimental crystallographic data, allowed to dock all the 82(More)
