MEF2-HDAC (class II) Modulators Library
The crystal structure of a HDAC9/MEF2/DNA complex reveals that HDAC9 binds to a hydrophobic groove of the MEF2 dimer.
ChemDiv proposes the new library of MEF2-HDAC (class II) inhibitors/modulators. This library represents a selection of drug-like compounds aimed at modulating protein-protein interaction (PPI) of MEF2 with HDAC 4, 5, 7 or 9 involved in significant physiological processes. Library has been assembled using in house structural biology insight, molecular stimulation-modeling, virtual screening of ChemDiv’s novel chemistries and medicinal chemistry filtering/ranking of the resulting hits. A representative example of a ‘druggable’ ‘hot spots’ included specific topological features of the MEF2-HDAC interaction (e.g. helix- or beta-sheet mimetics).
