Biological Activity

3-Deazaneplanocin A hydrochloride is a histone methyltransferase inhibitor; decreases global histone methylation. 3-Deazaneplanocin A hydrochloride 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. 3-Deazaneplanocin A hydrochloride 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).

DZNep synthesized to Ancillary Material Grade also available.
