BioAssay: AID 331954

Inhibition of GCN5 in human U937 cells at 50 uM

Pentadecylidenemalonate 1b, a simplified analogue of anacardic acid, was identified as the first mixed activator/inhibitor of histone acetyltransferases (HATs). It potentiates PCAF HAT activity while inhibiting those of p300/CBP and recombinant CBP. The remarkable apoptotic effect together with the ability to selectively acetylate histone versus non-histone substrates appoint 1b as a lead for the development of anticancer drugs. ..more

Title: Identification of long chain alkylidenemalonates as novel small molecule modulators of histone acetyltransferases.

Abstract: Pentadecylidenemalonate 1b, a simplified analogue of anacardic acid, was identified as the first mixed activator/inhibitor of histone acetyltransferases (HATs). It potentiates PCAF HAT activity while inhibiting those of p300/CBP and recombinant CBP. The remarkable apoptotic effect together with the ability to selectively acetylate histone versus non-histone substrates appoint 1b as a lead for the development of anticancer drugs.
