Abstract

The inhibitory activity of base-modified SAH analogues and the specificity of inhibiting human DNMT1 and DNMT3b2 enzymes was explored. The 6-amino group was essential while the 7-N of the adenine ring of SAH could be replaced by CH- without loss of activity against both enzymes. The introduction of small groups at the 2-position of the adenine moiety favors DNMT1 over DNMT3b2 inhibition whereas alkylation of the N(6)-amino moiety favors the inhibition of DNMT3b2 enzyme.
