SP2509 | LSD1 inhibitor

SP2509 (1423715-09-6) is a potent (IC50 = 13 nM) and reversible inhibitor of the histone demethylase LSD1 (KDM1A).1 It is inactive against the closely related flavin enzymes MAO A,B as well as lactate dehydrogenase, several CYP’s and hERG. LSD1 regulates the balance between self-renewal and differentiation of stem cells and is highly expressed in various cancers.2-6 SP2509 promotes autophagy in neuroblastoma cells.7
