Histone-lysine N-methyltransferase, H3 lysine-9 specific 3, also known as euchromatic histone-lysine N-methyltransferase 2 (EHMT2) and G9a, is a histone methyltransferase that in humans is encoded by the EHMT2 gene. Protein lysinemethyltransferase G9a plays key roles in the transcriptional repression of a variety of genes via dimethylation of lysine 9 on histoneH3 (H3K9me2) of chromatin as well as dimethylation of nonhistone proteins including tumor suppressor p53.
In vitro: UNC0646 is reported to be a potent and selective inhibitor of the homologous protein lysine methyltransferases, G9a and GLP (IC50 values are 6 nM and 15 nM for G9a and GLP, respectively). UNC0646 also potently blocks G9a/GLP methyltransferase activity in cells (IC50 = 10 nM in MCF7 cells) and exhibits low cellular toxicity (EC50 = 4.7 μM in MCF7 cells). UNC0646 is selective for G9a/GLP over a range of other protein lysine methyltransferases and protein arginine methyltransferases .
In vivo: The authors previously discovered potent and selective G9a/GLP inhibitors including the cellular chemical probe UNC0638, which displays an excellent separation of functional potency and cell toxicity. However, this inhibitor is not suitable for animal studies due to its poor pharmacokinetic (PK) properties. In this study, the authors report the discovery of the first G9a and GLP in vivo chemical probe UNC0642, which not only maintains high in vitro and cellular potency, low cell toxicity, and excellent selectivity, but also displays improved in vivo PK properties, making it suitable for animal studies .
