Bromodomain (BRD)-containing kinases initiate acetylation-dependent assembly of transcriptional regulator complexes by binding to (or 'reading') acetyl-lysine marks on histone tails. The regulator complexes thus formed, control expression of sets of proteins which alter the cellular phenotype in specific ways. (BRD)-containing proteins are exciting targets for the development of novel small molecule therapeutics in the areas of cancer, inflammation and viral infection [1].
