Macrocyclic peptides as inhibitors of WDR5–lncRNA interactions†
WDR5 is an adaptor protein involved in the regulation of various epigenetic modifier complexes. Various inhibitors have been described but only as inhibitors of its protein–protein interactions. Here we describe peptidic macrocycles that act as inhibitors of the interaction between WDR5 and long non-coding RNAs. The findings provide a new strategy to modulate the biological function of WDR5 as an RNA binding epigenetic regulator.
