A covalent compound selectively inhibits RNA demethylase ALKBH5 rather than FTO

Covalent Modifiers

Herein, we used a targeted covalent inhibition strategy and identified a covalent inhibitor, TD19, which selectively inhibits ALKBH5 compared with FTO demethylase in protein-based and tumor cell-based assays. TD19 irreversibly modifies the residues C100 and C267, preventing ALKBH5 from binding to m6A-containing RNA.

Generation and characterization of mirikizumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting the p19 subunit of IL-23 [Drug Discovery and Translational Medicine]


Mirikizumab effectively inhibits the interaction of IL-23 with its receptor, and potently blocks IL-23-induced IL-17 production in cell-based assays while preserving the function of IL-12. In both local and systemic in vivo mouse models, mirikizumab blocked IL-23-induced keratin mRNA or IL-17 production, respectively.
