Kinase experiment:

For SMYD2 inhibition, 10 µL of BAY-598 or DMSO is first incubated with recombinant SMYD2 in methylation buffer reaction for 1 h at 30°C, and then 2 µCi of 3H-AdoMet is added to the mix and incubated overnight at 30°C. The reaction mixture is resolved by SDS-PAGE followed by autoradiography, Coomassie stain, or MS analysis[1].

Cell experiment:

Cells are seeded in 96-well plates at 2000 cells per well (optimum density for growth) in a total volume of 100 μL of medium containing 2% fetal bovine serum. Serially diluted BAY-598 in 100 μL of medium is added to the cells 12 h later. After 72 h of incubation, cell viability is assessed by an MTT assay according to the manufacturer's instructions[1].

BAY-598 is a potent, peptide-competitive chemical probe for SET and MYND domain-containing protein 2 (SMYD2), a lysine methyl transferase inhibitor that dimethylates histone H3K36 and methylates histone H3K4. SMYD2 also methylates Lys-370 of p53, leading to decreased DNA-binding activity. SMYD2 is over-expressed in several cancers with poor prognosis. BAY-598 inhibits in vitro methylation of p53K370 with an IC50 value of 27 nM and in cells with an IC50 value < 1 μM. BAY-598 is more than 100-fold selective over other histone methyltransferases and non-epigenetic targets.
