Competitor Analysis: CDK9 and Mcl-1 InhibitorsThis Competitive Intelligence report aboutCDK9 and Mcl1 Inhibitorsprovides a competitor evaluation in the field of inhibitors of CDK9 and Mcl-1 as of March 2018.
Myeloid Cell Leukaemia-1 (Mcl-1), an anti-apoptotic member of the Bcl-2 protein family, has emerged as an especially attractive target for the development of next generation antineoplastics owing to its direct involvement in tumor genesis as well as its role in the resistance of many cancers to current anti-cancer therapies.
Cyclin-dependent kinase 9 (CDK9) regulates elongation of transcription through phosphorylation of RNA polymerase II (pSer2-RNAPII), and its short-term inhibition results in the selective downregulation of genes with short-lived transcripts and labile proteins - including the „pro-survival“ protein Mcl1.
The report includes a compilation of currently active projects in research and development of small molecule and biologic inhibitors of CDK9 or Mcl-1. In addition, the report lists company- and institution-specific R&D pipelines of CDK9 and Mcl-1 inhibitors. Competitor projects are listed in a tabular format providing information on:
- Drug Codes,
- Target / Mechanism of Action,
- Class of Compound,
- Product Category,
- R&D Stage and
- additional comments with a hyperlink leading to the source of information.
The Competitor Analysis Series delivers NO-FRILLS, but concise information about the pipeline of R&D projects for targets, diseases, technologies and companies at low prices. The information is provided in a tabular format and fully referenced.
