Transglutaminase inhibitors


Transglutaminases are involved in a multitude of physiological processes. One way to explore these processes is to use specific inhibitors. In addition to naturally occurring inhibitors such as the protein tridegin, rationally designed synthetic, small molecule inhibitors such as Z-DON (Z006) will be of immeasurable help to scientists wishing to decipher the enigmatic roles of individual transglutaminases.

In the following section, Zedira’s range of transglutaminase inhibitors is introduced with a special focus on their respective mechanism of action:


“DON” compounds (6-diazo-5-oxo-L-norleucine containing peptides)
