N-Oxalylglycine, as known as NOG, is a cell permeable inhibitor of α-ketoglutarate-dependent enzymes which include JMJD2A, JMJD2C, and JMJD2E. NOG also blocks the prolyl hydroxylase domain-containing proteins PHD1 and PHD2. Demethylation of the methylated forms of histone 3 lysine 9 (H3K9) and H3K36 can be catalyzed by JMJD2 subfamily of histone demethylases. Since histone demethylases are related to certain diseases, including cancer, selective inhibitors functions as anticancer agents and potential tools for clarifying the biological functions of JMJDs.

In vitro: NOG was identified as a natural product and presented in plants, including Rheum rhabarbarum (rhubarb) and Spinach oleracea (spinach) leaves. However, there was no NOG observed human embryonic kidney cells (HEK 293T) or Escherchia coli. NOG regulated gene expression via blocking 2-Oxoglutarate-dependent oxygenases [1].

In vivo: Up to now, in vivo study of NOG is still in the development stage.
