On the histone lysine methyltransferase activity of fungal metabolite chaetocin.
Histone lysine methyltransferases (HKMTs) are an important class of targets for epigenetic therapy. 1 (chaetocin), an epidithiodiketopiperazine (ETP) natural product, has been reported to be a specific inhibitor of the SU(VAR)3-9 class of HKMTs. We have studied the inhibition of the HKMT G9a by 1 and functionally related analogues. Our results reveal that only the structurally unique ETP core is required for inhibition, and such inhibition is time-dependent and irreversible (in the absence of...Expand abstract
