Modulation of the hypoxic response in cancer; inhibition of the HIF-1α/p300 protein-protein interaction
Hypoxia inducible factor (HIF)-1α is a heterodimerically-activated transcription factor central to the cellular response to hypoxic environments and is often upregulated in cancer. Binding of HIF-1α to the co-activator p300 is necessary for the hypoxia-induced transcription of many oncogenic proteins. The aim of this project was to develop novel small molecule inhibitors of the HIF-1α/p300 protein-protein interaction (PPI).
