Protein-protein interactions in transcription

A fertile ground for helix mimetics

Abstract

Designed ligands that inhibit protein-protein interactions involved in gene expression are valuable as reagents for genomics research and as leads for drug discovery efforts. Selective modulation of protein-protein interactions has proven to be a daunting task for synthetic ligands; however, the last decade has seen significant advances in inhibitor design, especially for helical protein interfaces. This review discusses examples of transcriptional complexes targeted by designer helices.
