Helix mimetics as inhibitors of the interaction of the estrogen receptor with coactivator peptides

Jorge Becerril, Andrew Hamilton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The short and curlies: A new α-helix mimetic based on a pyridylpyridone scaffold has been developed to bind to the estrogen receptor (ER) by mimicking the key leucine side chains of coactivator LXXLL boxes (L= leucine, X = any amino acid). These inhibitors compete with coactivator peptides for the surface of the ER and act as small-molecule inhibitors of the ER-coactivator interaction.
