EPZ004777 2017-05-19T11:28:30+00:00

This dataset summarizes current cancer research data on EPZ004777, a DOT1L (KMT4)-specific inhibitor1. EPZ004777 displays a near absolute specificity for DOT1L as compared to other lysine or arginine methyltransferases including CARM1, EHMT2, EZH1, EZH2, PRMT1, PRMT5, PRMT8, SETD7, and WHSC1. The dataset is meant to help you choose the optimal cell lines (e.g. EPZ004777-sensitive or resistant cell lines) as epigenetic model systems for the cancer under investigation. This page is periodically updated, so please check it again for new data that may be relevant to your research.

Most cell lines can be purchased from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) or from the Leibniz-Institut-German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (Deutsche Sammlung von Mikroorganismen und Zellkulturen; DSMZ), and links to these repositories are provided whenever available.

Salient genetic characteristics such as chimeric fusion genes (e.g. MLL-AF4 fusion) or mutations (e.g. a mutation at the CDKN2A locus) are also listed.

This dataset is a work in progress and we rely on our members and readers to point us to data relevant to this dataset. We, therefore, welcome any information that you may provide that would help us make this dataset a useful tool for your research. You may email us at info@ces.b2sg.org.
