Description

"EX-527 is a potent and selective sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) inhibitor (IC50 38 nM) identified from a high throughput screen. EX-527 is more selective (200-500-fold) for SIRT1 than for SIRT2 or SIRT3 and has been shown to be a potent SIRT6 inhibitor using H3K56 deacetylation site based substrate. EX-527 does not inhibit class I/II HDAC activity at concentrations up to 100uM. Enhances p53 acetylation in response to DNA damaging agents. EX-527 is racemic; the active isomer (EX-243) gives similar results and potency whereas the other isomer (designated EX-242) is inactive."

"Selective inhibitor of SIRT1 that does not inhibit histone deacetylase (HDAC) or other sirtuin deacetylase family members (IC50 values are 98, 19600, 48700, > 100000 and > 100000 nM for SIRT1, SIRT2, SIRT3, HDAC and NADase respectively). Enhances p53 acetylation in response to DNA damaging agents."
