General description

A cell-permeable analog of the amino-benzimidazolo BIX-01338 (Cat. No. >539212) and the methylester prodrug of BRD9539 that acts as an SAM-competitive inhibitor against PRC2 and G9a (IC50 ≤6.3 µM) histone methyltransferase activities, displaying little effect toward 10 other HMTases, 9 HDACs, and 100 cellular kinases. Selectively reduces H3K9me2 and H3K9me3 (EC50 = 5 µM) histone methylation levels in pancreatic cancer cells (PANC-1) with much less or little effect toward H3K36me3, H3K4me3, H3K27me3, or H3K6me3 levels. Inhibits both anchorage-dependent and -independent PANC-1 proliferation via ATM activation and G2/M cell-cycle arrest, but not apoptosis induction (no caspase3/7 activation; 10 µM, 72 h).
