SERP Comments:

This probe represents the best in class for SUV420H1 and H2 - hitting the enzymes at 25 and 144 nM, respectively, with selectivity data against a wide panel of related epigenetic and other targets. The originating paper gives good confidence around this molecule and includes strong biochemical, biophysical, structural & cellular data, as well as structurally related negative controls. No data are presented for the wider pharmacokinetic, drug-like profiles, and so no conclusion can be drawn on its suitability as a probe for use in model organism studies. However, permeability from cellular studies and chemical structure would support its further investigation towards these studies.
