Abstract

p300 is an acetyltransferase that targets histone and nonhistone proteins for lysine acetylation. Based on a p300 structure, Bowers et al. (2010) have conducted an in silico screen for active site small molecule inhibitors of p300. We describe this important discovery and its potential therapeutic applications.
