Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Detailed structure activity relationship of two series of quinazoline EHMT1/EHMT2 inhibitors (UNC0224 and UNC0638) have been elaborated. New and active alternatives are presented for the ubiquitous substitution patterns found in literature for the linker to the lysine mimicking region and the lysine mimic itself. These findings could allow for advancing EHMT1/EHMT2 inhibitors of that type beyond tool compounds by fine-tuning physicochemical properties making these inhibitors more drug-like. .
