|BAY1238097 is a BET inhibitor. BET inhibitors bind to the bromodomains of the bromodomain and extra-terminal motif (BET) proteins BRD2, BRD3, BRD4, and BRDT. This mechanism acts to prevent protein-protein interaction between BET proteins and acetylated histones and transcription factors. The action disrupts chromatin remodeling and inhibits expression of some growth-promoting genes which slows proliferation in susceptible tumours.
