UNC1215 was delevoped in a collaboration between the SGC (Structural Genomics Consortium) and the Center for Integrative Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery (CICBDD) at The University of North Carolina. It is the first chemical probe for a Kme (methyl-lysine recognition domain)-binding protein. UNC1215 is reported to be a potent and selective modulator of the Kme reading function of L3MBTL3, a member of the malignant brain tumor (MBT) family of chromatin interacting transcriptional repressors [1
