Name: Summary of the probe development efforts to identify inhibitors of the Steroid Receptor Coactivator 3 (SRC3; NCOA3).
Chemotherapeutic agents that target estrogen receptor alpha (ERa and growth factor signaling systems have been extensively pursued and developed for a long time (1-4). However, one of the most pressing limitations of currently established chemotherapeutic agents for breast cancer is the fact that breast cancers frequently acquire resistance to antiestrogens (5, 6). Nuclear receptors (NR) and other hormone receptors mediate their cellular effects in part through the interaction with coactivators which increase their transcriptional activity. The best characterized coactivator family is the steroid receptor coactivator (SRC) family (7). Given the central role that SRC-3 plays in breast and other cancers, the search for small molecule agents that target SRC-1 and SRC-3 represent an innovative and potentially effective strategy to identify agents to treat hormone-refractory breast cancers and other cancers where these coactivators are overexpressed. Compounds that target the function of steroid receptor coactivator 3 (SRC-3) protein promise to be different because cancer cells are less likely to bypass the comprehensive disruption of multiple growth factor signaling systems that result from the loss of SRC-3 function. In contrast to the goal of screens that seek to interfere with NR-coactivator interactions, the work proposed here aims to identify compounds that specifically target the coactivators themselves. This approach offers to be more broadly applicable. For instance, SRC-1 or SRC-3 typically remains overexpressed in ER negative cancers or acts as a coactivator for other oncogenic transcription factors (8). SMIs that target ERa, on the other hand are largely predicted to duplicate the biological action of antiestrogens such as tamoxifen.
