Immunopharmacology Comments
KDM6A and KDM6B have been reported as key regulators of metabolic switches that are involved in metabolic reprogramming of human T helper cell subsets [1]. In vitro, inhibition by GSK-J4 (the ester prodrug of GSK-J1, a KDM6A/B inhibitor) increases repressive H3K27me3 histone marks which causes down-regulation of the key transcription factor RORγt during Th17 differentiation, and in mature Th17 cells leads to metabolic reprogramming, suppression of IL-17 cytokine levels and reduced proliferation. This work suggests that inhibiting KDM6 demethylases may be an effective intervention in autoimmune inflammation.
