An orally bioavailable chemical probe of the Lysine Methyltransferases EZH2 and EZH1.
EZH2 or EZH1 is the catalytic subunit of the polycomb repressive complex 2 that catalyzes methylation of histone H3 lysine 27 (H3K27). The trimethylation of H3K27 (H3K27me3) is a transcriptionallyExpand

Combining Cloud-Based Free-Energy Calculations, Synthetically Aware Enumerations, and Goal-Directed Generative Machine Learning for Rapid Large-Scale Chemical Exploration and Optimization
TLDR
We combine large scale enumeration and cloud-based FEP profiling with goal-directed generative machine learning, which results in a higher enrichment of potent compounds over previously described approaches, and can rapidly accelerate the discovery of novel chemical matter within a predefined potency and property space.
