Structure-Based Optimization of Covalent, Small-Molecule Stabilizers of the 14-3-3?/ER? Protein–Protein Interaction from Nonselective Fragments

Covalent Modifiers

Orthogonal biophysical assays, including mass spectrometry and fluorescence anisotropy, were used to establish structure–activity relationships. Here, we show the structure-based optimization of the nonselective fragment toward selective and highly potent small-molecule stabilizers of the 14-3-3σ/ERα complex.
