Bromodomains (BRDs) are evolutionarily conserved protein interaction modules that specifically recognise acetyl-lysine on histones and other proteins, facilitating roles in regulating gene transcription. BRD-containing proteins bound to chromatin loci such as enhancers are often deregulated in disease leading to aberrant expression of proinflammatory cytokines and growth-promoting genes. Recent developments targeting the bromo and extraterminal (BET) subset of BRD proteins demonstrated… CONTINUE READING
