Histone methyltransferase inhibitor; decreases global histone methylation. Inhibits EZH2 histone methyltransferase and s-adenosylhomocysteine (SAH) hydrolase activity. Blocks trimethylation of lysine 27 on histone H3 and lysine 20 on histone H4 in vitro
. Induces apoptosis in multiple cancer cell lines and has no apoptotic effect on normal cells. Enhances Oct4 expression in chemically induced pluripotent stem cells (CiPSCs).
