Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Apabetalone (RVX 208) is a derivative of the plant polyphenol resveratrol. RVX 208 is an investigational inhibitor of BET bromodomain containing proteins, with potential anti-atherosclerotic action for the treatment of cardiovascular disease (CVD) [3-4].
SARS-CoV-2 and CIVID-19: Apabetalone (RVX 208) has been reported to reduce ACE2 expression and hence SARS-CoV-2 infection in vitro , and to block inflammation-mediated cardiac injury and dysfunction that is caused by SARS-CoV-2 infection (in a study using human cardiac organoids) . It has been respositioned for potential to provide a cardio-protective therapy that prevents COVID-19-mediated cardiac damage.
Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖
