SGC and Abbvie scientists have published a research article in Nature Chemical Biology reporting a chemical probe for embryonic ectoderm development (EED) protein. The open-access probe, A-395, binds to EED inhibiting protein-protein interaction and inactivating the Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2). PRC2 is dysregulated in many cancers and is a potential target for therapy.

Earlier this month, SGC and Abbvie reported on another collaboration resulting in A-196, a first-in-class open-access inhibitor against SUV4-20.

The IFOPA and FOP Friends® UK have joined together to co-fund a new study at the University of Oxford.

Alex Bullock, who established the University of Oxford FOP Research Team with Professor Jim Triffit, is optimistic that this new research technique “could lead to the development of a new class of inhibitor drug for FOP therapy.”

In the most recent issue of Nature Chemical Biology, SGC-Toronto and Abbvie researchers share the results of their collaboration to create the first-in-class chemical probe for SUV4-20. A-196, an open access potent and selective inhibitor for SUV4-20, decreases H4K20 methylation and alters the DNA damage response, and is a useful tool to investigate the regulation of genomic integrity.
