Targeting bromodomains: epigenetic readers of lysine acetylation

Inhibiting bromodomains - which are small interaction modules on proteins that assemble acetylation-dependent transcriptional regulatory complexes - could be a way to alter the expression of disease-promoting genes. In a Nature Reviews Drug Discovery article, the SGC highlights recent developments in the discovery of small-molecule bromodomain inhibitors and discuss how they might be used in cancer, inflammation and viral infection.
