BIX-01294, a diazepin-quinazolinamine derivative, is a histone-lysine methyltransferase (HMTase) inhibitor that modulates the epigenetic status of chromatin. BIX-01294 inhibits the G9aHMTase dependent levels of histone-3 lysine (9) methylation (H3K9me). Bix-01294 and valproic acid, a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, may replace the requirement for ectopic OCT4 (POU5F1) and cMyc respectively in pluripotent stem cell induction (iPS) recipes.
BIX 01294 is a selective histone methyl transferase inhibitor. In its inhibition of the histone lysine methyltransferases, BIX 01294 does not compete with cofactor S-adenosyl-methionine. The target enzyme is G9a, and it selectively impairs G9a HMTase and the generation of H3K9me2 in vitro.1
Gene expression is governed by complex mechanisms including transcription factor binding to DNA and coordinated changes in chromatin structure. The primary protein components of chromatin are the his...
