AZ505(cas 1035227-43-0) is a potent and highly selective inhibitor of the oncogenic protein SMYD2(IC50=0.12 uM) with potential anticancer activity, >600 fold than SMYD3(IC50>83.3 uM); DOT1L(IC50>83.3 uM);EZH2(IC50>83.3 uM). The kinetics of AZ505 binding to SMYD2 were determined by inhibition kinetic experiments using lter binding assays. Analysis of the double-reciprocal plot of the initial velocities against substrate concentrations indicates that AZ505 binding to SMYD2 is competitive with the peptide substrate and uncompetitive with the cofactor. The inhibition constant for AZ505 was determined to be 0.30 mM using Michaelis-Menten kinetics. The structure of the ternary complex reveals that a single AZ505 molecule is bound in the peptide binding groove of SMYD2. The cyclohexyl group of AZ505 is positioned in a primaryhydrophobic pocket that is formed at the interface of the core SET and I-SET domains, which is also occupied by residue L369 of the p53 peptide. AZ505 has an IC50 value of 0.12 uM against SMYD2, and has no potency against SMYD3. Comparing the structures of SMYD2 and SMYD3 shows that residue V195 physically restricts access to the primary hydrophobic pocket in SMYD3, which is in agreement with the selectivity profile of AZ505.
