High-throughput screening of a library of compounds has led to the identification of a new structural class of human methionine aminopeptidases inhibitors. They inhibited the processing of 14-3-3γ in cells and blocked proliferation of both endothelial cells and transformed cancer cell lines. The picture shows the crystal structure of the complex of one inhibitor (yellow) with the type 1 human methionine aminopeptidase (blue CoII, red H2O). (Figure Presented)
