Epigenetics

Axon Ligands™ for Epigenetic Research

Epigenetics is typically defined as the study of heritable changes in gene expression that are not due to changes in DNA sequence. Epigenetic modifications of chromatin have been shown to play a major role in cancer onset and development. Acetylation and methylation are the most-studied chromatin marks, having fundamental functions in the epigenetic regulation of gene expression[1],[2].

Epigenetic modification of histones is a reversible process. Histone acetyltransferases (HATs) are the enzymes responsible for the introduction of acetyl groups on histones, whereas methyl groups can be introduced both on DNA and histones by DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs) and histone methyltransferases (HMTs)[3]. The removal of methyl and acetyl groups is enzymatically mediated by the action of histone demethylases (HDMs) and histone deacetylases (HDACs), respectively. In turn, epigenetic marks can be recognized by and bound to specific protein domains, such as bromodomain and malignant brain tumor (MBT). These complexes are important intermediates in the epigenetic regulation of gene expression[4].

Axon Medchem offers a wide selection of bioactive small molecules to modulate epigenetic mechanisms, serving researchers in their objective to investigate biological consequences of chromatin modifications and develop new drugs for cancer treatment.
