Epigenetic modifications extensively occur in mammalian embryonic development and cell differentiation process. They play an essential role in the reprogramming of nuclei during somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) and subsequent in vitro embryonic development. Recently, SCNT embryos have been verified to contain a subnormal level of histone H3K4 dimethylation (H3K4me2) in contrast to in vitro fertilized embryos. This finding suggested that increasing H3K4me2 levels may ameliorate the aberrant development of cloned embryos...

Countercurrent chromatography (CCC) has gradually become a widely used method for preparative separation of bioactive natural molecules. These molecules generally contain distinct scaffolds and characteristics that cannot be readily isolated from plants. While one-dimensional CCC is typically used for the initial purification with insufficiently resolved peaks after locating bioactive components, two-dimensional (2D) or multi-dimensional CCC strategies are employed to improve the resolution of peaks. However, these methods usually present certain disadvantages, such as complicated procedures and increased time consumption, experimental costs, and equipment requirements...

Lysine specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) plays a vital role in epigenetic regulation of gene activation and repression in several human cancers and is recognized as a promising antitumor therapeutic target. In this paper, a series of 4-(4-benzyloxy)phenoxypiperidines were synthesized and evaluated. Among the tested compounds, compound 10d exhibited the potent and reversible inhibitory activity against LSD1 in vitro (IC50  = 4 μM). Molecular docking was conducted to predict its binding mode. Furthermore, 10d displayed it could inhibit migration of HCT-116 colon cancer cells and A549 lung cancer cells...

Epigenetic modulators Histone deacetylases (HDACs) and Lysine demethylase (LSD1) are validated targets for anticancer therapy. Both HDAC1/2 and LSD1 are found in association with the repressor protein CoREST in a transcriptional co-repressor complex, which is responsible for gene silencing. Combined modulation of both targets results in a synergistic antiproliferative activity. In the present investigation, we report about the design and synthesis of a series of polyamine-based HDACs-LSD1 dual binding inhibitors obtained by coupling Vorinostat and Tranylcypromine...

Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) are creating great expectations for regenerative medicine. However, safety strategies must be put in place to guard against teratoma formation after transplantation of hiPSC-derived cells into patients. Recent studies indicate that epigenetic regulators act at the initial step of tumorigenesis. Using gain-of-function and loss-of-function approaches, we show here that the expression and function of lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) are tightly regulated in hiPSCs, and their deregulation underlies the development of teratomas...

Lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) is a chromatin-remodeling enzyme that plays an important role in cancer. Over-expression of LSD1 decreases methylation at histone 3 lysine 4, and aberrantly silences tumor suppressor genes. Inhibitors of LSD1 have been designed as chemical probes and potential antitumor agents. We recently reported the cyclic peptide 9, which potently and reversibly inhibits LSD1 (IC50 2.1 μM; Ki 385 nM). Systematic alanine mutagenesis of 9 revealed residues that are critical for LSD1 inhibition, and these mutated peptides were evaluated as LSD1 inhibitors...

Epigenetic regulators are recurrently mutated and aberrantly expressed in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Targeted therapies designed to inhibit these chromatin-modifying enzymes, such as the histone demethylase lysine specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) and the histone methyltransferase DOT1L, have been developed as novel treatment modalities for these often refractory diseases. A common feature of many of these targeted agents is their ability to induce myeloid differentiation, suggesting that multiple paths toward a myeloid gene expression program can be engaged to relieve the differentiation blockade that is uniformly seen in AML...

LSD1/KDM1 is a histone demethylase that preferentially removes methyl groups from the mono- and di-methylated lysine 4 in histone H3 (H3K4), key marks for active chromatin for transcriptional activation. LSD1 is essential for pluripotent embryonic stem cells and embryonic teratocarcinoma/carcinoma cells and its expression is often elevated in various cancers. We developed a new LSD1 inhibitor, CBB3001, which potently inhibited LSD1 activity both in vitro and in vivo. CBB3001 also selectively inhibited the growth of human ovarian teratocarcinoma PA-1 and mouse embryonic carcinoma F9 cells, caused the downregulation of pluripotent stem cell proteins SOX2 and OCT4...

Oncogene-induced senescence, e.g., in melanocytic nevi, terminates the expansion of pre-malignant cells via transcriptional silencing of proliferation-related genes due to decoration of their promoters with repressive trimethylated histone H3 lysine 9 (H3K9) marks. We show here that structurally distinct H3K9-active demethylases-the lysine-specific demethylase-1 (LSD1) and several Jumonji C domain-containing moieties (such as JMJD2C)-disable senescence and permit Ras/Braf-evoked transformation. In mouse and zebrafish models, enforced LSD1 or JMJD2C expression promoted Braf-V600E-driven melanomagenesis...

The histone demethylase LSD1 plays a pivotal role in cellular differentiation, particularly in silencing lineage-specific genes. However, little is known about how LSD1 regulates neurosensory differentiation in the inner ear. Here we show that LSD1 interacts directly with the transcription factor Pax2 to form the NuRD co-repressor complex at the Pax2 target gene loci in a mouse otic neuronal progenitor cell line (VOT-N33). VOT-N33 cells expressing a Pax2-response element reporter were GFP-negative when untreated, but became GFP positive after forced differentiation or treatment with a potent LSD inhibitor...

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a clonal disorder of myeloid progenitors characterized by the acquisition of chromosomal abnormalities, somatic mutations, and epigenetic changes that determine a consistent degree of biological and clinical heterogeneity. Advances in genomic technologies have increasingly shown the complexity and heterogeneity of genetic and epigenetic alterations in AML. Among the genetic alterations occurring in AML, frequent are the genetic alterations at the level of various genes involved in the epigenetic control of the DNA methylome and histone methylome...

Lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) is an attractive molecular target for cancer therapy. We have previously reported potent LSD1-selective inhibitors (i.e., NCD18, NCD38, and their analogs) consisting of trans-2-phenylcyclopropylamine (PCPA) or trans-2-arylcyclopropylamine (ACPA) and a lysine moiety that could form a γ-turn structure in the active site of LSD1. Herein we report the design, synthesis and evaluation of γ-turn mimetic compounds for further improvement of LSD1 inhibitory activity and anticancer activity...

The underlying mechanisms responsible for the cardioprotective effects of riboflavin remain elusive. Current study tested the hypothesis that riboflavin protects injured myocardium via epigenetic modification of LSD1. Here we showed that myocardial injury was attenuated and cardiac function was improved in riboflavin-treated mice with experimental myocardial infarction (MI), while these protective effects of riboflavin could be partly blocked by cotreatment with LSD1 inhibitor. Riboflavin also reduced apoptosis in hypoxic (1% oxygen) H9C2 cell lines...

Complex regulatory networks control epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) but the underlying epigenetic control is poorly understood. Lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) is a key histone demethylase that alters the epigenetic landscape. Here we explored the role of LSD1 in global epigenetic regulation of EMT, cancer stem cells (CSCs), the tumour microenvironment, and therapeutic resistance in breast cancer. LSD1 induced pan-genomic gene expression in networks implicated in EMT and selectively elicits gene expression programs in CSCs whilst repressing non-CSC programs...

Here we report corin, a synthetic hybrid agent derived from the class I HDAC inhibitor (entinostat) and an LSD1 inhibitor (tranylcypromine analog). Enzymologic analysis reveals that corin potently targets the CoREST complex and shows more sustained inhibition of CoREST complex HDAC activity compared with entinostat. Cell-based experiments demonstrate that corin exhibits a superior anti-proliferative profile against several melanoma lines and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma lines compared to its parent monofunctional inhibitors but is less toxic to melanocytes and keratinocytes...

Lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1), which has been reported to be overexpressed in several human cancers, has recently emerged as an attractive therapeutic target for treating cancer. To date, almost all the developed LSD1 inhibitors are chemo-synthesized molecules, while α-mangostin is first characterized as xanthone-based natural inhibitor in the current study with IC50 values of 2.81 ± 0.44 μM. Bioactivity study and docking analysis indicated that α-mangostin could inhibit MDA-MB-231 cells migration and evasion through inhibit intracellular LSD1 activity...

FAD-dependent lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) is overexpressed or deregulated in many cancers such as AML and prostate cancer and hence is a promising anticancer target with first inhibitors in clinical trials. Clinical candidates are N-substituted derivatives of the dual LSD1-/monoamine oxidase-inhibitor tranylcypromine (2-PCPA) with a basic amine function in the N-substituent. These derivatives are selective over monoamine oxidases. So far, only very limited information on structure-activity studies about this important class of LSD1 inhibitors is published in peer reviewed journals...

Although genome-wide association studies have shown that potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily Q member 1 (KCNQ1) is one of the genes that is most significantly associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), functionally annotating disease-associated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) remains a challenge. Recently, our group described a novel strategy to identify proteins that bind to SNP-containing loci in an allele-specific manner. The present study successfully applied this strategy to investigate rs163184, a T2DM susceptibility SNP located in the intronic region of KCNQ1...

Lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) is a flavin-dependent enzyme that removes methyl groups from mono- or dimethylated lysine residues at the fourth position of histone H3. We have previously reported several histone H3 peptides containing an LSD1 inactivator motif at Lys-4. In this study, histone H3 peptides having a trans-2-phenylcyclopropylamine (PCPA), a 2,5-dihydro-1H-pyrrole, and a 1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine moiety at Lys-4 were prepared along with related compounds possessing a shorter side chain at the fourth position...
