I-BET762 is a potent inhibitor of the BET family of bromodomains with no activity at bromodomains BAZ2B, SP140, ATAD2, CREBBO, and PCAF (1,2). The IC50’s for H4Ac peptide displacement: BRD2 = 32.5nM, BRD3 = 42.4nM, BRD4 = 36.1nM (1). This compound was able to suppress proinflammatory proteins by macrophage, block acute inflammation in mice (1) and suppressed the inflammatory function of T cells (3). The inhibition of BET bromodomains results in downregulation of Myc transcription which is an important oncogene (4).
