Inhibition of the histone lysine demethylase JMJD2A by ejection of structural Zn(II).
- JMJD2A, a 2-oxoglutarate dependent N(epsilon)-methyl lysine histone demethylase, is inhibited by disruption of its Zn-binding site by Zn-ejecting compounds including disulfiram and ebselen; this observation may enable the development of inhibitors selective for this subfamily of 2OG dependent oxygenases that do not rely on binding to the highly-conserved Fe(ii)-containing active site.
