Description:
FUSED [1 ,2,4]THIADIAZINE DERIVATIVES WHICH ACT AS KAT INHIBITORS OF THE MYST FAMILY

The present invention relates to compounds which act as Lysine Acetyl Transferase (KAT) inhibitors of the MYST family.

Background to the invention

The MYST family is the largest family of KATs and is named after the founding members in yeast and mammals: MOZ, Ybf2/ Sas3, Sas2 and TIP60 (Dekker 2014). MYST proteins mediate many biological functions including gene regulation, DNA repair, cell-cycle regulation and development (Awakumov 2007; Voss 2009). The KAT proteins of the MYST family play key roles in post-translational modification of histones and thus have a profound effect on chromatin structure in the eukaryotic nucleus (Awakumov 2007). The family currently comprises five mammalian KATs: TIP60 (KAT5; HTATIP; MIM 601409), MOZ (KAT6A; MIM 601408; MYST3), MORF (KAT6b; QKF; MYST4), HBO (KAT8; HB01 ; MYST2) and MOF (KAT8; MYST1 ) (Voss 2009). These five members of the MYST family are present in humans and malfunction of MYST proteins is known to be associated with cancer (Awakumov 2007). The most frequently used names for members of the MYST family are:

MYST functional domains

MYST proteins function in multisubunit protein complexes including adaptors such as ING proteins that mediate DNA binding (Awakumov 2007). For instance, TIP60 is affiliated to the NuA4 multiprotein complex (which embraces more than 16 members) (Zhang 2017). However, there have also been some reports of a helix-turn-helix DNA-binding motif within the structure of the MOZ protein itself (Holbert 2007), which suggests the capacity to bind directly to DNA. The acetyltransferase activity of MYST proteins is effected by the MYST domain (the catalytic domain). The MYST domain contains an acetyl-coenzyme A binding motif, which is structurally conserved with other HATs, and an unusual C2HC-type zinc finger (Voss 2009). The highly conserved MYST domain, including the acetyl-CoA binding motif and zinc finger, is considered to be the defining feature of this family of enzymes (Avvakumov 2007).

Role of MYST proteins

Acetylation of histone residues is generally associated with transcriptional activation.

However, in some instances, transcriptional repression has also been attributed to MYST proteins (Voss 2009). The individual members of the MYST family are known to participate in a broad range of important biochemical interactions:

HB01 positively regulates initiation of DNA replication (Avvakumov 2007; Aggarwal 2004; Doyon 2006; lizuka 2006) via acetylation of histone substrates, which presumably leads to a more accessible chromatin conformation (Avvakumov 2007, lizuka 2006). HB01 is also known to play a role in the pathogenesis of breast cancer by promoting an enrichment of cancer stem-like cells (Duong 2013) and by destabilising the estrogen receptor a (ERa) through ubiquinitiation, which proceeds via the histone-acetylating activity of HB01 (lizuka 2013). HB01 has also been implicated in Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) {Shi 2015).

TIP60 (KAT5) is the most studied member of the MYST family. TIP60 plays an important role not only in the regulation of transcription but also in the process of DNA damage repair, particularly in DNA double-strand breaks (DSB) (Gil 2017). TIP60 can acetylate p53, ATM and c-Myc. TIP60 and MOF specifically acetylate lysine 120 (K120) of p53 upon DNA damage (Avvakumov 2007). TIP60 has also been implicated in being important for regulatory T-cell (Treg) biology. FOXP3 is the master regulator in the development and function of Tregs and it has been shown that acetylation of FOXP3 by TIP60 is essential for FOXP3 activity {Li 2007, Xiao 2014). Underscoring this, conditional TIP60 deletion in mice leads to a scurfy-like fatal autoimmune disease, mimicking a phenotype seen in FOXP3 knock out mice (Xiao 2014). In cancer, Treg cells can facilitate tumour progression by suppressing adaptive immunity against the tumour.

MOF ("males absent on the first") was originally identified as one of the components of the dosage compensation in Drosophila, and was classified as a member of the MYST family based on functional studies and sequence analysis (Su 2016). The human ortholog exhibits significant similarity to drosophila MOF; containing an acetyl-CoA-binding site, a chromodomain (which binds histones) and a C2HC-type zinc finger (Su 2016). MOF is a key enzyme for acetylating histone H4K16, and MOF-containing complexes are implicated in various essential cell functions with links to cancer (Su 2016). Besides the global reduction of histone acetylation, depletion of MOF in mammalian cells can result in abnormal gene transcription, particularly causing abnormal expression of certain tumor suppressor genes or oncogenes, suggesting a critical role of MOF in tumorigenesis (Su 2016). For example, KAT activity of MOF has been shown to be required to sustain MLL- AF9 leukemia and may be important for multiple AML subtypes (Valerio 2017).

KAT6B (Querkopf) was first identified in a mutation screen for genes regulating the balance between proliferation and differentiation during embryonic development (Thomas 2000). Mice homozygous for the KAT6B mutant allele have severe defects in cerebral cortex development resulting from a severe reduction in both proliferation and differentiation of specifically the cortical progenitor population during embryonic development. KAT6B is required for the maintenance of the adult neural stem cell population and is part of a system regulating differentiation of stem cells into neurons (Merson 2006). KAT6B is also mutated in rare forms of leukaemia (Vizmanos 2003). The MOZ locus ranks as the 12th most commonly amplified region across all cancer types (Zack 2013). MOZ is within the 8p1 1 -p12 amplicon, which is seen at frequencies around 10-15% in various cancers, especially breast and ovarian (Turner-lvey 2014). MOZ was first identified as a fusion partner of the CREB-binding protein (CBP) during examination of a specific chromosomal translocation in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) (Avvakumov 2007; Borrow 1996). MOZ KAT activity is necessary for promoting the expression of MEIS1 and HOXa9, proteins that are typically seen overexpressed in some lymphomas and

leukaemias. Increased survival of MOZ +/" heterozygote mice in the Εμ-Myc transgenic model of B-cell lymphoma is seen, where loss of a single MOZ allele leads to a biologically relevant reduction in Meisl and Hoxa9 levels in pre-B-cells (Sheikh 2015).

Inhibitors of some MYSTs are known. For example, the following Anacardic acid derivative is reported (Ghizzoni 2012) as inihibiting TIP60 (ICso = 74μΜ) and MOF (ICso = 47μΜ):

Other known inhibitors include (Zhang 2017):

Benzyloxy: -OCh -Phenyl. Includes Other Forms

Unless otherwise specified, included in the above are the well known ionic, salt, solvate, and protected forms of these substituents. For example, a reference to carboxylic acid (-COOH) also includes the anionic (carboxylate) form (-COO " ), a salt or solvate thereof, as well as conventional protected forms. Similarly, a reference to an amino group includes the protonated form (-N + HR 1 R 2 ), a salt or solvate of the amino group, for example, a hydrochloride salt, as well as conventional protected forms of an amino group.

Salts

It may be convenient or desirable to prepare, purify, and/or handle a corresponding salt of the active compound, for example, a pharmaceutically-acceptable salt. Examples of pharmaceutically acceptable salts are discussed in Berge 1977.

For example, if the compound is anionic, or has a functional group which may be anionic (e.g. -COOH may be -COO " ), then a salt may be formed with a suitable cation. Examples of suitable inorganic cations include, but are not limited to, alkali metal ions such as Na + and K + , alkaline earth cations such as Ca 2+ and Mg 2+ , and other cations such as ΑΓ 3 . Examples of suitable organic cations include, but are not limited to, ammonium ion (i.e. NH4 + ) and substituted ammonium ions (e.g. NH3R + , NH2R2 + , NHR3 + , NR 4 + ). Examples of some suitable substituted ammonium ions are those derived from: ethylamine,

diethylamine, dicyclohexylamine, triethylamine, butylamine, ethylenediamine,

ethanolamine, diethanolamine, piperazine, benzylamine, phenylbenzylamine, choline, meglumine, and tromethamine, as well as amino acids, such as lysine and arginine. An example of a common quaternary ammonium ion is N(CH3) 4 + .

If the compound is cationic, or has a functional group which may be cationic (e.g. -Nh may be -NH3 + ), then a salt may be formed with a suitable anion. Examples of suitable inorganic anions include, but are not limited to, those derived from the following inorganic acids: hydrochloric, hydrobromic, hydroiodic, sulfuric, sulfurous, nitric, nitrous, phosphoric, and phosphorous.

Examples of suitable organic anions include, but are not limited to, those derived from the following organic acids: 2-acetyoxybenzoic, acetic, ascorbic, aspartic, benzoic,

Examples of suitable polymeric organic anions include, but are not limited to, those derived from the following polymeric acids: tannic acid, carboxymethyl cellulose.

Solvates

It may be convenient or desirable to prepare, purify, and/or handle a corresponding solvate of the active compound. The term "solvate" is used herein in the conventional sense to refer to a complex of solute (e.g. active compound, salt of active compound) and solvent. If the solvent is water, the solvate may be conveniently referred to as a hydrate, for example, a mono-hydrate, a di-hydrate, a tri-hydrate, etc. Isomers

Certain compounds of the invention may exist in one or more particular geometric, optical, enantiomeric, diasteriomeric, epimeric, atropic, stereoisomeric, tautomeric, conformational, or anomeric forms, including but not limited to, cis- and trans-forms; E- and Z-forms; c-, t-, and r- forms; endo- and exo-forms; R-, S-, and meso-forms; D- and L-forms; d- and l-forms; (+) and (-) forms; keto-, enol-, and enolate-forms; syn- and anti-forms; synclinal- and anticlinal-forms; a- and β-forms; axial and equatorial forms; boat-, chair-, twist-, envelope-, and halfchair-forms; and combinations thereof, hereinafter collectively referred to as "isomers" (or "isomeric forms"). The term "chiral" refers to molecules which have the property of non-superimposability of the mirror image partner, while the term "achiral" refers to molecules which are

superimposable on their mirror image partner.

The term "stereoisomers" refers to compounds which have identical chemical constitution, but differ with regard to the arrangement of the atoms or groups in space.

"Diastereomer" refers to a stereoisomer with two or more centers of chirality and whose molecules are not mirror images of one another. Diastereomers have different physical properties, e.g. melting points, boiling points, spectral properties, and reactivities. Mixtures of diastereomers may separate under high resolution analytical procedures such as electrophoresis and chromatography. "Enantiomers" refer to two stereoisomers of a compound which are non-superimposable mirror images of one another. Stereochemical definitions and conventions used herein generally follow S. P. Parker, Ed., McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Chemical Terms (1984) McGraw-Hill Book Company, New York; and Eliel, E. and Wilen, S., "Stereochemistry of Organic Compounds", John Wiley & Sons, Inc., New York, 1994. The compounds of the invention may contain asymmetric or chiral centers, and therefore exist in different stereoisomeric forms. It is intended that all stereoisomeric forms of the compounds of the invention, including but not limited to, diastereomers, enantiomers and atropisomers, as well as mixtures thereof such as racemic mixtures, form part of the present invention. Many organic compounds exist in optically active forms, i.e., they have the ability to rotate the plane of plane-polarized light. In describing an optically active compound, the prefixes D and L, or R and S, are used to denote the absolute configuration of the molecule about its chiral center(s). The prefixes d and I or (+) and (-) are employed to designate the sign of rotation of plane-polarized light by the compound, with (-) or I meaning that the compound is levorotatory. A compound prefixed with (+) or d is dextrorotatory. For a given chemical structure, these stereoisomers are identical except that they are mirror images of one another. A specific stereoisomer may also be referred to as an enantiomer, and a mixture of such isomers is often called an enantiomeric mixture. A 50:50 mixture of enantiomers is referred to as a racemic mixture or a racemate, which may occur where there has been no stereoselection or

stereospecificity in a chemical reaction or process. The terms "racemic mixture" and "racemate" refer to an equimolar mixture of two enantiomeric species, devoid of optical activity.

In the present invention, the carbon atom to which R 1 and Cy are bound may be a stereochemical centre, i.e. when R 1 is not H and R 1 and Cy are different. The compounds of the present invention may be a racemic mixture, or may be in enantiomeric excess or substantially enantiomerically pure.

Note that, except as discussed below for tautomeric forms, specifically excluded from the term "isomers", as used herein, are structural (or constitutional) isomers (i.e. isomers which differ in the connections between atoms rather than merely by the position of atoms in space). For example, a reference to a methoxy group, -OCH3, is not to be construed as a reference to its structural isomer, a hydroxymethyl group, -CH2OH. Similarly, a reference to ortho-chlorophenyl is not to be construed as a reference to its structural isomer, meta- chlorophenyl. However, a reference to a class of structures may well include structurally isomeric forms falling within that class (e.g. Ci-7 alkyl includes n-propyl and iso-propyl; butyl includes n-, iso-, sec-, and tert-butyl; methoxyphenyl includes ortho-, meta-, and para- methoxyphenyl).

The above exclusion does not pertain to tautomeric forms, for example, keto-, enol-, and enolate-forms, as in, for example, the following tautomeric pairs: keto/enol (illustrated below), imine/enamine, amide/imino alcohol, amidine/amidine, nitroso/oxime,

thioketone/enethiol, N-nitroso/hyroxyazo, and nitro/aci-nitro.

keto enol enolate

The term "tautomer" or "tautomeric form" refers to structural isomers of different energies which are interconvertible via a low energy barrier. For example, proton tautomers (also known as prototropic tautomers) include interconversions via migration of a proton, such as keto-enol and imine-enamine isomerizations. Valence tautomers include interconversions by reorganization of some of the bonding electrons.

Note that specifically included in the term "isomer" are compounds with one or more isotopic substitutions. For example, H may be in any isotopic form, including 1 H, 2 H (D), and 3 H (T); C may be in any isotopic form, including 12 C, 13 C, and 14 C; O may be in any isotopic form, including 16 0 and 18 0; and the like.

Examples of isotopes that can be incorporated into compounds of the invention include isotopes of hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorous, fluorine, and chlorine, such as, but not limited to 2 H (deuterium, D), 3 H (tritium), 11 C, 13 C, 14 C, 15 N, 18 F, 31 P, 32 P, 35 S, 36 CI, and 125 l . Various isotopically labeled compounds of the present invention, for example those into which radioactive isotopes such as 3H , 13C, and 14C are incorporated. Such isotopically labelled compounds may be useful in metabolic studies, reaction kinetic studies, detection or imaging techniques, such as positron emission tomography (PET) or single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) including drug or substrate tissue distribution assays, or in radioactive treatment of patients. Deuterium labelled or substituted therapeutic compounds of the invention may have improved DMPK (drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics) properties, relating to distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME). Substitution with heavier isotopes such as deuterium may afford certain therapeutic advantages resulting from greater metabolic stability, for example increased in vivo half-life or reduced dosage requirements. An 18F labeled compound may be useful for PET or SPECT studies. Isotopically labeled compounds of this invention and prodrugs thereof can generally be prepared by carrying out the procedures disclosed in the schemes or in the examples and preparations described below by substituting a readily available isotopically labeled reagent for a non-isotopically labeled reagent. Further, substitution with heavier isotopes, particularly deuterium (i.e., 2H or D) may afford certain therapeutic advantages resulting from greater metabolic stability, for example increased in vivo half-life or reduced dosage requirements or an improvement in therapeutic index. It is understood that deuterium in this context is regarded as a substituent. The concentration of such a heavier isotope, specifically deuterium, may be defined by an isotopic enrichment factor. In the compounds of this invention any atom not specifically designated as a particular isotope is meant to represent any stable isotope of that atom.

Unless otherwise specified, a reference to a particular compound includes all such isomeric forms, including (wholly or partially) racemic and other mixtures thereof. Methods for the preparation (e.g. asymmetric synthesis) and separation (e.g. fractional crystallisation and chromatographic means) of such isomeric forms are either known in the art or are readily obtained by adapting the methods taught herein, or known methods, in a known manner.

Inhibition

The compounds of the present invention inhibit the activity of one or more KATs of the MYST family, i.e., TIP60, KAT6B, MOZ, HB01 and MOF.

The inhibitory activity of the compounds of the invention is likely to vary between the KATs of the MYST family.

The compounds of the present invention may selectively inhibit the activity of one or more KATs of the MYST family over other KATs of the MYST family, i.e. the inhibitory activity of the compound may be higher for one or more of the KATs of the MYST family over one or more of the other KATs of the MYST family.

Compounds of the present invention may (selectively) inhbit the activity of a single HAT of the MYST family. Thus, compounds of the present invention may inhibit the activity of TIP60, MORF, MOZ, HB01 or MOF. Compounds of the present invention may inhibit the activity of two KATs of the MYST family, for example TIP60 and HB01. Compounds of the present invention may inhibit the activity of three KATs of the MYST family, for example TIP60, HB01 and MOF.

Compounds of the present invention may inhibit the activity of four KATs of the MYST family, for example TIP60, HB01 , MOF and MOZ.

Compounds of the present invention may inhibit the activity of all five KATs of the MYST family, thus the compounds may inhibit the acitvty of TIP60, KAT6B, MOZ, HB01 and MOF. Therapeutic Indications

Compounds disclosed herein may provide a therapeutic benefit in a number of disorders, in particular, in the treatment or prevention of cancers.

Cancer

Inhibitors of post-translational lysine acetylation mediated by KATs of the MYST family are considered to be promising anti-neoplastic agents and therefore may be useful therapeutic agents, e.g. for use in the treatment of cancer. Such agents may also be useful as therapeutic agents for the treatment of cancers which exhibit overexpression of MYST proteins.

A "cancer" may be any form of cancer. In particular, a cancer can comprise any one or more of the following: leukemia, acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), acute myeloid leukemia (AML), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), non- Hodgkin's lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, prostate cancer, lung cancer, melanoma, breast cancer, colon and rectal cancer, colon cancer, squamous cell carcinoma and gastric cancer.

Alternatively, the cancer may comprise adrenocortical cancer, anal cancer, bladder cancer, blood cancer, bone cancer, brain tumor, cancer of the female genital system, cancer of the male genital system, central nervous system lymphoma, cervical cancer, childhood rhabdomyosarcoma, childhood sarcoma, endometrial cancer, endometrial sarcoma, esophageal cancer, eye cancer, gallbladder cancer, gastrointestinal tract cancer, hairy cell leukemia, head and neck cancer, hepatocellular cancer, hypopharyngeal cancer, Kaposi's sarcoma, kidney cancer, laryngeal cancer, liver cancer, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, malignant thymoma, mesothelioma, multiple myeloma, myeloma, nasal cavity and paranasal sinus cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer, nervous system cancer, neuroblastoma, oral cavity cancer, oropharyngeal cancer, osteosarcoma, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, parathyroid cancer, penile cancer, pharyngeal cancer, pituitary tumor, plasma cell neoplasm, primary CNS lymphoma, rectal cancer, respiratory system, retinoblastoma, salivary gland cancer, skin cancer, small intestine cancer, soft tissue sarcoma, stomach cancer, stomach cancer, testicular cancer, thyroid cancer, urinary system cancer, uterine sarcoma, vaginal cancer, vascular system, Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia and/or Wilms' tumor.

Cancers may be of a particular type. Examples of types of cancer include lymphoma, melanoma, carcinoma (e.g. adenocarcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, medullary carcinoma, papillary carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma), astrocytoma, glioma, medulloblastoma, myeloma, meningioma, neuroblastoma, sarcoma (e.g. angiosarcoma, chrondrosarcoma, osteosarcoma). The cancer may be a MYST overexpressing cancer. The cancer may over-express MYST protein relative to non-cancerous tissue. In some cases, the cancer overproduces MYST mRNA relative to non-cancerous tissue. The overexpressed MYST protein or MYST mRNA may be any one KATs of the MYST family, i.e. any one of TIP60, KAT6B, MOZ, HB01 and MOF. In some embodiments, the cancer may overexpress more than one KATs of the MYST family, e.g. two or more selected from the group consisting of TIP60, KAT6B, MOZ, HB01 and MOF. The cancer may be a cancer that evades immune recognition, e.g. via tumor-associated Treg cells.

Alternatively or additionally, the cancer may be a bromodomain overexpressing cancer: The cancer cell may overexpress one or more bromodomain-containing proteins (herein referred to as "bromodomain proteins") relative to non-cancerous tissue. It may overproduce one or more bromodomain mRNA as compared to non-cancerous tissue. In some cases, the level of bromodomain protein and/or mRNA in the cell is at a level approximately equivalent to that of a non-cancerous cell. The cancer may overexpress one or more bromodomain proteins selected from the group consisting of; a bromodomain protein (namely BRD2, BRD3, BRD4, BRD7, BRD8, BRD9 and BRDT), TAF1/TAF1 L, TFIID, SMARC2 (also called BRM) and SMARC4 (also called BRG1 ). For example, some colon cancers overexpress BRD8. Some acute myeloid leukemia cells overexpress BRD4.

Treg cells as a cancer target

Treg cells are immunosuppressive cells, which act to prevent autoimmunity in the healthy mammalian immune system. However, some cancers act to upregulate Treg activity to evade the host immune system. Infiltration of Tregs in many tumour types correlates with poor patient prognoses and Treg cell depletion in tumour models demonstrates increased anti-tumour immune responses (Melero 2015). Tumour-associated Treg suppression of the host immune system has been reported in lung (Joshi 2015), (Tso 2012), breast (Gobert 2009; Yan 2011), prostate (Miller 2006) & pancreatic (Wang X 2016) cancers. FOXP3 is considered to be the master regulator of Treg differentiation, development and function of Treg cells. Several studies have demonstrated that acetylation of FOXP3 plays a critical role in the stability of the FOXP3 protein and in regulating its ability to access DNA; and FOXP3 acetylation is mediated by KATs (Dhuban 2017). Decreases in TIP60-mediated FOXP3 acetylation has been shown to attenuate Treg development, suggesting a further mechanism by which the inhibition of the acetylating activity of MYST proteins could be used to intervene in diseases such as cancer.

Combination therapies

The agents described herein may be useful in combination with other anti-cancer therapies. They may act synergistically with chemo- or radiotherapy, and/or with

bromodomain targeted drugs. For example, the agents described herein may be useful in combination with a BET inhibitor. BET inhibitors reversibly bind the bromodomains of the BET proteins BRD2, BRD3, BRD4 and BRDT.

Inhibition of HAT proteins of the MYST family, to reduce the extent of lysine acetylation of histones (and other nuclear proteins described herein) will likely sensitize tumour cells to chemo- and radiotherapy by attenuating the process of DNA damage repair, e.g. the repair of DNA double-strand breaks (DSB), thus increasing the frequency of chemo- and radiotherapy induced cancer cell death. Therefore, it is likely that inhibition of HAT proteins of the MYST family would synergize well with low dose chemo- or radiotherapy. Thus, in some cases, a MYST protein antagonist disclosed herein may be administered in conjunction with a radiotherapeutic or chemotherapeutic regime. It may be administered simultaneously or sequentially with radio and/or chemotherapy. Suitable chemotherapeutic agents and radiotherapy protocols will be readily appreciable to the skilled person. In particular, the compound described herein may be combined with low dose chemo or radio therapy. Appropriate dosages for "low dose" chemo or radio therapy will be readily appreciable to the skilled practitioner.

In particular, where the compounds of the present application are used to abrogate Treg suppression, these may be combined with with immune checkpoint inhibitors (Melero 2015, Wang L 2016). Furthermore, where compounds of the present invention which abrogate Treg suppression may be used in combination with radiotherapy, to reduce the depletion of Treg function in tumours (Persa 2015, Jeong 2016) Methods of Treatment

The compounds of the present invention may be used in a method of therapy. Also provided is a method of treatment, comprising administering to a subject in need of treatment a therapeutically-effective amount of a compound of the invention. The term "therapeutically effective amount" is an amount sufficient to show benefit to a patient. Such benefit may be at least amelioration of at least one symptom. The actual amount administered, and rate and time-course of administration, will depend on the nature and severity of what is being treated. Prescription of treatment, e.g. decisions on dosage, is within the responsibility of general practitioners and other medical doctors. As described above, the anti-cancer treatment defined herein may be applied as a sole therapy or may involve, in addition to the compound of the invention, conventional surgery or radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Such chemotherapy may include one or more of the following categories of anti-tumour agents:-

(i) other antiproliferative/antineoplastic drugs and combinations thereof, as used in medical oncology, such as alkylating agents (for example cisplatin, oxaliplatin, carboplatin, cyclophosphamide, nitrogen mustard, melphalan, chlorambucil, busulphan, temozolamide and nitrosoureas); antimetabolites (for example gemcitabine and antifolates such as fluoropyrimidines like 5 fluorouracil and tegafur, raltitrexed, methotrexate, cytosine arabinoside, and hydroxyurea); antitumour antibiotics (for example anthracyclines like adriamycin, bleomycin, doxorubicin, daunomycin, epirubicin, idarubicin, mitomycin-C, dactinomycin and mithramycin); antimitotic agents (for example vinca alkaloids like vincristine, vinblastine, vindesine and vinorelbine and taxoids like taxol and docetaxel (Taxotere) and polokinase inhibitors); and topoisomerase inhibitors (for example epipodophyllotoxins like etoposide and teniposide, amsacrine, topotecan and

The subject may be a eukaryote, an animal, a vertebrate animal, a mammal, a rodent (e.g. a guinea pig, a hamster, a rat, a mouse), murine (e.g. a mouse), canine (e.g. a dog), feline (e.g. a cat), equine (e.g. a horse), a primate, simian (e.g. a monkey or ape), a monkey (e.g.

marmoset, baboon), an ape (e.g. gorilla, chimpanzee, orang-utan, gibbon), or a human.

Formulations

While it is possible for the active compound to be administered alone, it is preferable to present it as a pharmaceutical composition (e.g. formulation) comprising at least one active compound, as defined above, together with one or more pharmaceutically acceptable carriers, adjuvants, excipients, diluents, fillers, buffers, stabilisers, preservatives, lubricants, or other materials well known to those skilled in the art and optionally other therapeutic or prophylactic agents. Thus, the present invention further provides pharmaceutical compositions, as defined above, and methods of making a pharmaceutical composition comprising admixing at least one active compound, as defined above, together with one or more pharmaceutically acceptable carriers, excipients, buffers, adjuvants, stabilisers, or other materials, as described herein.

The term "pharmaceutically acceptable" as used herein pertains to compounds, materials, compositions, and/or dosage forms which are, within the scope of sound medical judgement, suitable for use in contact with the tissues of a subject (e.g. human) without excessive toxicity, irritation, allergic response, or other problem or complication, commensurate with a reasonable benefit/risk ratio. Each carrier, excipient, etc. must also be "acceptable" in the sense of being compatible with the other ingredients of the formulation.

Suitable carriers, excipients, etc. can be found in standard pharmaceutical texts, for example, Remington's Pharmaceutical Sciences, 18th edition, Mack Publishing Company, Easton, Pa., 1990.

The formulations may conveniently be presented in unit dosage form and may be prepared by any methods well known in the art of pharmacy. Such methods include the step of bringing into association the active compound with the carrier which constitutes one or more accessory ingredients. In general, the formulations are prepared by uniformly and intimately bringing into association the active compound with liquid carriers or finely divided solid carriers or both, and then if necessary shaping the product. Formulations may be in the form of liquids, solutions, suspensions, emulsions, elixirs, syrups, tablets, losenges, granules, powders, capsules, cachets, pills, ampoules, suppositories, pessaries, ointments, gels, pastes, creams, sprays, mists, foams, lotions, oils, boluses, electuaries, or aerosols. Formulations suitable for oral administration (e.g. by ingestion) may be presented as discrete units such as capsules, cachets or tablets, each containing a predetermined amount of the active compound; as a powder or granules; as a solution or suspension in an aqueous or non-aqueous liquid; or as an oil-in-water liquid emulsion or a water-in-oil liquid emulsion; as a bolus; as an electuary; or as a paste.

A tablet may be made by conventional means, e.g., compression or moulding, optionally with one or more accessory ingredients. Compressed tablets may be prepared by compressing in a suitable machine the active compound in a free-flowing form such as a powder or granules, optionally mixed with one or more binders (e.g. povidone, gelatin, acacia, sorbitol, tragacanth, hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose); fillers or diluents (e.g. lactose, microcrystalline cellulose, calcium hydrogen phosphate); lubricants (e.g. magnesium stearate, talc, silica); disintegrants (e.g. sodium starch glycolate, cross-linked povidone, cross-linked sodium carboxymethyl cellulose); surface-active or dispersing or wetting agents (e.g. sodium lauryl sulfate); and preservatives (e.g. methyl p-hydroxybenzoate, propyl p-hydroxybenzoate, sorbic acid). Moulded tablets may be made by moulding in a suitable machine a mixture of the powdered compound moistened with an inert liquid diluent. The tablets may optionally be coated or scored and may be formulated so as to provide slow or controlled release of the active compound therein using, for example, hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose in varying proportions to provide the desired release profile. Tablets may optionally be provided with an enteric coating, to provide release in parts of the gut other than the stomach.

Formulations suitable for topical administration (e.g. transdermal, intranasal, ocular, buccal, and sublingual) may be formulated as an ointment, cream, suspension, lotion, powder, solution, past, gel, spray, aerosol, or oil. Alternatively, a formulation may comprise a patch or a dressing such as a bandage or adhesive plaster impregnated with active compounds and optionally one or more excipients or diluents.

Formulations suitable for topical administration in the mouth include losenges comprising the active compound in a flavoured basis, usually sucrose and acacia or tragacanth;

pastilles comprising the active compound in an inert basis such as gelatin and glycerin, or sucrose and acacia; and mouthwashes comprising the active compound in a suitable liquid carrier.

Formulations suitable for topical administration to the eye also include eye drops wherein the active compound is dissolved or suspended in a suitable carrier, especially an aqueous solvent for the active compound.

Formulations suitable for nasal administration, wherein the carrier is a solid, include a coarse powder having a particle size, for example, in the range of about 20 to about 500 microns which is administered in the manner in which snuff is taken, i.e. by rapid inhalation through the nasal passage from a container of the powder held close up to the nose.

Suitable formulations wherein the carrier is a liquid for administration as, for example, nasal spray, nasal drops, or by aerosol administration by nebuliser, include aqueous or oily solutions of the active compound.

Formulations suitable for administration by inhalation include those presented as an aerosol spray from a pressurised pack, with the use of a suitable propellant, such as dichlorodifluoromethane, trichlorofluoromethane, dichoro-tetrafluoroethane, carbon dioxide, or other suitable gases. Formulations suitable for topical administration via the skin include ointments, creams, and emulsions. When formulated in an ointment, the active compound may optionally be employed with either a paraffinic or a water-miscible ointment base. Alternatively, the active compounds may be formulated in a cream with an oil-in-water cream base. If desired, the aqueous phase of the cream base may include, for example, at least about 30% w/w of a polyhydric alcohol, i.e., an alcohol having two or more hydroxyl groups such as propylene glycol, butane-1 ,3-diol, mannitol, sorbitol, glycerol and polyethylene glycol and mixtures thereof. The topical formulations may desirably include a compound which enhances absorption or penetration of the active compound through the skin or other affected areas. Examples of such dermal penetration enhancers include dimethylsulfoxide and related analogues.

When formulated as a topical emulsion, the oily phase may optionally comprise merely an emulsifier (otherwise known as an emulgent), or it may comprises a mixture of at least one emulsifier with a fat or an oil or with both a fat and an oil. Preferably, a hydrophilic emulsifier is included together with a lipophilic emulsifier which acts as a stabiliser. It is also preferred to include both an oil and a fat. Together, the emulsifier(s) with or without stabiliser(s) make up the so-called emulsifying wax, and the wax together with the oil and/or fat make up the so-called emulsifying ointment base which forms the oily dispersed phase of the cream formulations.

Suitable emulgents and emulsion stabilisers include Tween 60, Span 80, cetostearyl alcohol, myristyl alcohol, glyceryl monostearate and sodium lauryl sulphate. The choice of suitable oils or fats for the formulation is based on achieving the desired cosmetic properties, since the solubility of the active compound in most oils likely to be used in pharmaceutical emulsion formulations may be very low. Thus the cream should preferably be a non-greasy, non-staining and washable product with suitable consistency to avoid leakage from tubes or other containers. Straight or branched chain, mono- or dibasic alkyl esters such as di-isoadipate, isocetyl stearate, propylene glycol diester of coconut fatty acids, isopropyl myristate, decyl oleate, isopropyl palmitate, butyl stearate, 2-ethylhexyl palmitate or a blend of branched chain esters known as Crodamol CAP may be used, the last three being preferred esters. These may be used alone or in combination depending on the properties required. Alternatively, high melting point lipids such as white soft paraffin and/or liquid paraffin or other mineral oils can be used. Formulations suitable for rectal administration may be presented as a suppository with a suitable base comprising, for example, cocoa butter or a salicylate. Formulations suitable for vaginal administration may be presented as pessaries, tampons, creams, gels, pastes, foams or spray formulations containing in addition to the active compound, such carriers as are known in the art to be appropriate.

Formulations suitable for parenteral administration (e.g. by injection, including cutaneous, subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous and intradermal), include aqueous and nonaqueous isotonic, pyrogen-free, sterile injection solutions which may contain anti-oxidants, buffers, preservatives, stabilisers, bacteriostats, and solutes which render the formulation isotonic with the blood of the intended recipient; and aqueous and non-aqueous sterile suspensions which may include suspending agents and thickening agents, and liposomes or other microparticulate systems which are designed to target the compound to blood components or one or more organs. Examples of suitable isotonic vehicles for use in such formulations include Sodium Chloride Injection, Ringer's Solution, or Lactated Ringer's Injection. Typically, the concentration of the active compound in the solution is from about 1 ng/mL to about 10 μg mL, for example from about 10 ng/ml to about 1 μg mL. The formulations may be presented in unit-dose or multi-dose sealed containers, for example, ampoules and vials, and may be stored in a freeze-dried (lyophilised) condition requiring only the addition of the sterile liquid carrier, for example water for injections, immediately prior to use. Extemporaneous injection solutions and suspensions may be prepared from sterile powders, granules, and tablets. Formulations may be in the form of liposomes or other microparticulate systems which are designed to target the active compound to blood components or one or more organs.

Dosage

It will be appreciated by one of skill in the art that appropriate dosages of the compound, and compositions comprising the compound, can vary from patient to patient. Determining the optimal dosage will generally involve the balancing of the level of therapeutic benefit against any risk or deleterious side effects. The selected dosage level will depend on a variety of factors including, but not limited to, the activity of the particular compound, the route of administration, the time of administration, the rate of excretion of the compound, the duration of the treatment, other drugs, compounds, and/or materials used in

combination, the severity of the condition, and the species, sex, age, weight, condition, general health, and prior medical history of the patient. The amount of compound and route of administration will ultimately be at the discretion of the physician, veterinarian, or clinician, although generally the dosage will be selected to achieve local concentrations at the site of action which achieve the desired effect without causing substantial harmful or deleterious side-effects.

Administration can be effected in one dose, continuously or intermittently (e.g., in divided doses at appropriate intervals) throughout the course of treatment. Methods of determining the most effective means and dosage of administration are well known to those of skill in the art and will vary with the formulation used for therapy, the purpose of the therapy, the target cell(s) being treated, and the subject being treated. Single or multiple

administrations can be carried out with the dose level and pattern being selected by the treating physician, veterinarian, or clinician. In general, a suitable dose of the active compound is in the range of about 100 ng to about 25 mg (more typically about 1 μg to about 10 mg) per kilogram body weight of the subject per day. Where the active compound is a salt, an ester, an amide, a prodrug, or the like, the amount administered is calculated on the basis of the parent compound and so the actual weight to be used is increased proportionately.

In one embodiment, the active compound is administered to a human patient according to the following dosage regime: about 100 mg, 3 times daily.

In one embodiment, the active compound is administered to a human patient according to the following dosage regime: about 150 mg, 2 times daily.

In one embodiment, the active compound is administered to a human patient according to the following dosage regime: about 200 mg, 2 times daily. However in one embodiment, the active compound is administered to a human patient according to the following dosage regime: about 50 or about 75 mg, 3 or 4 times daily.

In one embodiment, the active compound is administered to a human patient according to the following dosage regime: about 100 or about 125 mg, 2 times daily. Treatment

The term "treatment," as used herein in the context of treating a condition, pertains generally to treatment and therapy, whether of a human or an animal (e.g., in veterinary applications), in which some desired therapeutic effect is achieved, for example, the inhibition of the progress of the condition, and includes a reduction in the rate of progress, a halt in the rate of progress, regression of the condition, amelioration of the condition, and cure of the condition. Treatment as a prophylactic measure (i.e., prophylaxis, prevention) is also included. The term "therapeutically-effective amount," as used herein, pertains to that amount of an active compound, or a material, composition or dosage from comprising an active compound, which is effective for producing some desired therapeutic effect, commensurate with a reasonable benefit/risk ratio, when administered in accordance with a desired treatment regimen.

Similarly, the term "prophylactically-effective amount," as used herein, pertains to that amount of an active compound, or a material, composition or dosage from comprising an active compound, which is effective for producing some desired prophylactic effect, commensurate with a reasonable benefit/risk ratio, when administered in accordance with a desired treatment regimen.

The Subject/Patient

The subject/patient may be an animal, mammal, a placental mammal, a marsupial (e.g., kangaroo, wombat), a monotreme (e.g., duckbilled platypus), a rodent (e.g., a guinea pig, a hamster, a rat, a mouse), murine (e.g., a mouse), a lagomorph (e.g., a rabbit), avian (e.g., a bird), canine (e.g., a dog), feline (e.g., a cat), equine (e.g., a horse), porcine (e.g., a pig), ovine (e.g., a sheep), bovine (e.g., a cow), a primate, simian (e.g., a monkey or ape), a monkey (e.g., marmoset, baboon), an ape (e.g., gorilla, chimpanzee, orangutang, gibbon), or a human.

General synthesis methods

The compounds of the invention can be prepared employing the following general methods and using procedures described in detail in the examples. The reaction conditions referred to are illustrative and non-limiting, for example one skilled in the art may use a diverse range of synthetic methods to synthesize the desired compounds such as but not limited to methods described in literature (for example but not limited to March's Advanced Organic Chemistry: Reactions, Mechanisms, and Structure, 7th Edition or Larock's Comprehensive Organic Transformations: Comprehensive Organic

Transformations: A Guide to Functional Group Preparations).

Compounds of formula I, as described above, can be prepared by synthetic strategies outlined below, wherein the definitions above apply. The synthetic strategies could be applied to the use of racemic or single enantiomer starting materials.

General synthesis method 1

Scheme 1 A illustrates the formation of the amide bond by coupling the relevant benzothiadiazinedioxide alkyl ester G1 (R 10 = alkyl) with primary amine G2. Methods to form such amides G3 will be apparent to those skilled in the art, but include for example the use of microwave irradiation or conventional heating, either in a reagent-free fashion with reagents such as NEt.3, DMAP or DIPEA and optionally with the use of a suitable solvent, e.g. ethanol or acetonitrile.

G1 G2 G3

Scheme 1A

General synthesis method 2

Scheme 2A illustrates the formation of the amide bond by coupling the relevant benzothiadiazinedioxide carboxylic acid G4 to primary amine G2. Methods to form such amides G3 will be apparent to those skilled in the art, but include for example, the use of reagents such as EDCI/DMAP, EDCI/HOBt, HATU, HBTU and T3P. Alternatively the acid can be activated prior to treatment with the primary amine G2. Such methods include, but are not limited to, acyl chloride formation from G4 (e.g. SOC , POC , oxalyl chloride and DMF in an appropriate solvent), mixed anhydride formation from G4 (CICO2CH3 and ΕίβΝ, / ' so-butyl02CCI and ΕίβΝ in an appropriate solvent, e.g. CH2CI2 or MeCN) or acyl imidazolide formation (carbonyl diimidazole and DIPEA in an appropriate solvent).

General synthesis method 3

Scheme 3A illustrates the formation of the benzothiadiazinedioxide core G1 by acylation of the aminobenzenesulfonamide G5 with ethyl 2-chloro-2-oxoacetate, followed by cyclization of G6 with a base such as sodium hydride to form core G1.

Scheme 3A

Alternatively G5 can be treated with a reagent such as ethyl carbonocyanidate to form the bicyclic core G1 directly (Scheme 4A).

G5 G1

Scheme 4A

Formation of G5 (Y = CI, Br or I) can be achieved from G5 (Y= H) using reagents such as /V-chlorosuccinimide, Br2 or I CI, which can then undergo cyclisation to give G1 as shown in Scheme 3A or 4A.

General synthesis method 4

Scheme 5A illustrates the formation of primary amines G2 from common intermediate G10. Preparation of versatile intermediate G10 can be achieved through the alkylation of benzylacetate G8 with an alkyl halide, e.g. G7 (where PG is an appropriate protecting group), using a strong base such as LiHMDS followed by the hydrogenation of ester G9. Alternative preparation of G10 can be achieved through the /V-protection of an appropriate beta amino acid. Carboxylic acid G10 is a versatile intermediate that can be used to introduce a range of R 1 substituents. Formation of an oxazole can be achieved through activation to the acyl chloride and then treatment with 1 ,2,3-triazole in sulfolane. Likewise, treatment of the acyl chloride with a suitable hydrazide (e.g. formyl hydrazine), followed by Burgess reagent will furnish a 1 ,3,4-oxadiazole. The synthesis of other aromatic heterocycles from G10 can be achieved by those skilled in the art, using methods described in Hereocyclic Chemistry (J .A. Joule and K. Mills, Blackwell Science). Carboxylic acid G10 can be converted to amides using a suitable primary or secondary amine and an appropriate coupling agent (e.g. T3P, HATU, HBTU, EDCI, etc.). Curtius rearrangement can be achieved through treatment of carboxylic acid G10 with an appropriate azido reagent, e.g. DPPA. The resulting isocyanate can be trapped with a suitable alcohol to give a carbamate. If a Boc-protected amine is introduced, the protecting group can be removed to furnish a primary amine, which itself could be further derivatised using methods known to those skilled in the art.

G7 G8 G9 G10

G1 1 G2

Scheme 5A

Deprotection of these materials G11 yields primary amines G2, which can then be coupled following general synthesis methods 1 or 2. Conditions for the removal of the protecting group are dependent on the type of protecting group employed, and may include but are not limited to such methods as acid or base hydrolysis, transition metal catalysed cleavage and hydrogenation over transition metal catalysts. Other suitable protecting groups and removal methods will be known to those skilled in the art (for example Greene's Protective Groups in Organic Synthesis, 4th Edition). The use of such a protecting group could be relevant in the other Schemes described. General synthesis method 5

Scheme 6A shows the conversion of intermediate G12 (where R 10 is alkyl or H) and R 11 is a halogen (e.g. I, Br or CI) to G1 with a range of substituents Y. Suzuki coupling from G12 can be used to introduce heteroaromatic rings through the use of an appropriate boronic acid or boronate ester and an appropriate catalyst (e.g. Pd" or Pd°) optionally with a suitable ligand. Y=CN can be introduced through treatment of G12 with a suitable source of cyanide using an appropriate catalyst and ligand. An ester can be introduced to Y using a carbonylation reaction, using carbon monoxide gas, a suitable alcohol (e.g. ethanol) and a suitable catalyst. The alkyl ester can be hydrolysed to give a carboxylic acid (e.g. using LiOH is a suitbale solvent) and then couple with a suitable amine to form an amide using a coupling reagent (e.g. T3P, HATU, HBTU etc). Intermediates G1 can be converted to G3, for example by using general synthesis methods 1 or 2.

General synthesis method 6

Scheme 7A illustrates an alternative route for accessing primary amines (X=CH or N). The conversion of a suitable halophenyl or halopyridyl compound G13 to G14 can be achieved as shown in Scheme 7A. If the halogen in G13 is iodo or bromo, an /V-linked 5-membered aromatic heterocycle R 12 can be introduced with the use of a suitable copper catalyst. Where R 12 is a C-linked heterocycle, an appropriate boronic acid or boronate ester in combination with a suitable catalyst (e.g. Pd" or Pd°), can effect the formation of G14. Where the halogen is F or CI, treatment of G13 with a suitable nucleophile (e.g. an alcohol or 5-membered heterocycle, e.g. pyrazole or triazole), an SNAr reaction could effect the formation of R 12 = OR 3 , or /V-linked 5-membered aromatic heterocycle. Reduction of the nitrile group in G14 with a suitable reducing agent, e.g. LiAlhU or BH3 effects the formation of primary amine G15, which can be converted to G3 using the general synthesis methods 1 or 2.

G13 G14 G15

Scheme 7A

An alternative to the use of the nitrile shown in Scheme 7A, is shown in Scheme 8A, where PG is a suitable protecting group or a hydrogen atom. Such protecting groups include, but are not limited to, phthalimide, Boc, acetyl, CBZ, benzyl and dimethoxy benzyl. Halogen G16 can be converted to G17 using similar methods to those described for G13 to G14. Deprotection of G17 to give G18 can be achieved using methods known to those skilled in the art.

General synthesis method 7

Scheme 8B illustrates an alternative route for accessing primary amine G2. Alkylation of structure G19 can be achieved with an alkyl halide, e.g. G7 (where PG is an appropriate protecting group), using an appropriate base such as but not limited to LiHMDS.

Deprotection of G11 yields primary amines G2, which may then be coupled following general synthesis methods 1 or 2.

Substituent Z may be but is not limited to a halogen such as fluoro. For example, G19 may be reacted with a suitable base such as for example LiHMDS to form the corresponding carbanion which may be treated with a suitable source of F + such as but not limited to NFSI (/V-fluorodibenzenesulfonimide).

Subsequent alkylation and deprotection of G20 described as described in general synthesis method 7 would give amine G21 , which may then be coupled following general synthesis methods 1 or 2.

Scheme 10A and B illustrate the synthesis of a primary amine G24 (where R 13 represents a suitable substituent, including H) from starting material G22 (where X = OH or halogen such as but not limited to Br or activated alcohol such as but not limited to mesylate), for example via intermediate G23 in the Gabriel synthesis (Scheme 10A) or via the azide intermediate G25 (Scheme 10B).

The formation of intermediate G23 may be achieved via nucleophilic substitution or via the Mitsunobu reaction (when X = OH). Cleavage to give amine G24 may be achieved by treating G23 with for example hydrazine.

Scheme 10A

The azide G25 may be achieved via for example nucleophilic substitution or Mitsunobu and then reduced to the primary amine by methods known to someone skilled in the art but may include the use of a metal catalyst in the presence of hydrogen or the use of triphenylphosphine (Staudinger reaction).

G22 G25 G24

Scheme 10B General synthesis method 10

Scheme 11 A illustrates the formation of primary amine G28 via alkylation of a nitrile such as G26. Groups R 14 may be alkyl groups such as but not limited to methyl or ethyl and may connected to form for example a cyclopentyl or cyclohexyl moiety. Methods to form intermediate G27 from G26 may be known to someone skilled in the art and include the use of an appropriate base such as hydroxide or an alkoxide base to form an anion which is then reacted with for example an alkyl halide. If the two R14 groups form a cycle, the appropriate starting material may be a dihaloalkane such as for example 1 ,4- dibromobutane to form the cyclopentyl moiety.

Subsequent reduction of the nitrile in structure G27 may be achieved via hydrogenation in the presence of a metal catalyst.

Acetyltransferase Biochemical Assay

Compounds may be tested for in vitro activity in the following assay:

To determine the inhibition of HAT enzymatic activity by test compounds, assay reactions were conducted in a volume of 8 μΙ_ in 384-well low volume assay plates. The reactions were performed in assay buffer (100 mM Tris-HCI, pH 7.8, 15 mM NaCI, 1 mM EDTA, 0.01 % Tween-20, 1 mM Dithiothreitol, and 0.02% m/v chicken egg white albumin).

Reactions were set up with 0.4 μΜ Acetyl coenzyme A (for all assays apart from KAT6A which was set up with 10 μΜ Acetyl coenzyme A), 100nM of full-length recombinant histone labelled by limited biotinylation (KAT6A, KAT6B, KAT7: H3.1 , KAT5, KAT8: H4), 10/ 5/ 8/ 40/ 20 nM of KAT5/KAT6A/KAT6B/KAT7/KAT8 enzyme respectively, and an acetyl-lysine specific antibody (H3.1 : Cell Signaling Technology, H4: Abeam). 1 1 -point dilution series of the test compounds were prepared in DMSO; a volume of 100 nl_ was transferred using a pin tool into assay plates containing substrates, before adding enzyme to start the reaction. Positive (no compound) and negative (AcCoA omitted) control reactions were included on the same plates and received the same amount of DMSO as the compound treated wells. After adding all reagents, the plates were sealed with adhesive seals and incubated for 90 min at room temperature. An additional 4 μΙ_ of assay buffer containing AlphaScreen® Protein A acceptor beads and Streptavidin donor beads (PerkinElmer, Waltham, MA) to a final concentration of 8 μg/mL was then added. After incubation for 2 hours the plates were read using an EnVision 2103 multi label plate reader (PerkinElmer) in HTS AlphaScreen® mode. I C50 values were obtained from the raw readings by calculating percent inhibition (%l) for each reaction relative to controls on the same plate (%I=(I-CN)/(CP-CN) where CN/ CP are the averages of the negative/ positive reactions, respectively), then fitting the %l data vs. compound concentration [I] to

%I=(A+((B-A)/(1 +((C/[I]) A D)))) where A is the lower asymptote, B is the upper asymptote, C is the I C50 value, and D is the slope.

Histone H3 Lysine 14 Acetylation Biomarker Assay

Compounds may be tested for their ability to inhibit acetylation of the histone H3K14 marker (which is HB01 mediated) in the following assay:

The cell line U20S was seeded at a density of 12,000 cells per well in 96 well optical quality tissue culture plates in RPMI medium and 10% foetal bovine serum, and allowed to adhere for 24 hours under standard culture conditions (37 degree Celsius, 5% CO2). At the end of this period the cells were washed with serum free medium. Compound dilutions prepared in DMSO were added to the serum free medium, with negative control wells reserved for treatment with DMSO only and positive controls receiving a potent inhibitor compound (e.g. Example 36 in WO2016/198507) at 10 μΜ concentration. After incubation for 24 hours, the cells were fixed with 3.7% formaldehyde in PBS for 20 minutes at room temperature, washed with phosphate buffer saline containing 0.1 %Tween 20 and blocked with Odyssey blocking buffer (LI-COR, Lincoln, NE) containing 0.1 %TritonX100. Anti- H3K14ac specific antibody (Cell Signalling Technologies) in Odyssey blocking buffer containing 0.1 %Tween 20 was added and incubated for 14 hours at 4 degree Celsius. After washing, a secondary antibody labelled with Alexa647 dye (LifeTechnologies) and

Hoechst 33342 (1 μg/mL, SigmaAldrich) were added for 1 hour incubation. Plates were washed and read on a PerkinElmer Phenix high content imaging platform. Using a

Columbus image analysis pipeline, individual nuclei were located by Hoechst 33342 stain and the acetylation level was calculated from the Alexa647-related intensity in the same area. The resulting mean intensity per cell was directly converted to percent inhibition relative to controls on the same plate and the data fitted against a four-parameter logistic model to determine the 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50).

The results are shown in table 6 below:

H2A.Z Lysine 7 Acetylation Biomarker Assay

To discover a global TIP60/KAT5 cellular biomarker useful for monitoring PD responses of TIP60 inhibition in vitro and in vivo, various histone modifications were assessed for TIP60 dependence through genetic (TIP60 siRNA and CRISPR/Cas9) or TIP60 pharmacological inhibition. This analysis clearly identified acetylation of the histone variant H2A.Z at Lysine 7 (H2A.ZK7ac) as a global histone mark which is TIP60-dependent in both human and mouse cells. To a lesser extent, TIP60 also acetylated lysine 4 and 1 1 of H2A.Z. Compounds may be tested for their ability to inhibit the histone H2A.Z Lysine 7 acetylation biomarker (which is TIP60 mediated) in the following assay:

The cell line U20S was seeded at a density of 9,000 cells per well in 96 well optical quality tissue culture plates in RPMI medium and 10% foetal bovine serum, and allowed to adhere for 24 hours under standard culture conditions (37 degree Celsius, 5% CO2). At the end of this period the cells were washed with serum free medium. Compound dilutions prepared in DMSO were added to the serum free medium, with negative control wells reserved for treatment with DMSO only and positive controls receiving a potent inhibitor compound (e.g. Example 146) at 20 μΜ concentration. After incubation for 24 hours, the cells were fixed with 3.7% formaldehyde in PBS for 20 minutes at room temperature, washed with phosphate buffer saline containing 0.1 % Tween 20 and blocked with Odyssey blocking buffer (LI-COR, Lincoln, NE) containing 0.1 % TritonX100. Anti-H2A.Z K7ac specific antibody (Abeam) in Odyssey blocking buffer containing 0.1 %Tween 20 was added and incubated for 14 hours at 4 degree Celsius. After washing, a secondary antibody labelled with Alexa647 dye (LifeTechnologies) and Hoechst 33342 (10 μΜ, SigmaAldrich) were added for 1 hour incubation. Plates were washed and read on a PerkinElmer Phenix high content imaging platform. Using a Columbus image analysis pipeline, individual nuclei were located by Hoechst 33342 stain and the acetylation level was calculated from the

Alexa647-related intensity in the same area. The resulting mean intensity per cell was directly converted to percent inhibition relative to controls on the same plate and the data fitted against a four-parameter logistic model to determine the 50% inhibitory concentration (ICso).

KAT5

Molecular Biology: A codon optimized DNA sequence (for expression in Escherichia coli) encoding amino acid residues 2 to 461 (Uniprot Q92993-2) of human KAT5 isoform was synthesised by GenScript USA Inc (Piscataway, New Jersey, USA). This was ligated into a modified pET43a E. coli expression vector designed to encode an N-terminal hexahistidine tag followed by a tobacco etch virus protease (TEV) cleavage site and by the KAT5 sequence. The resulting protein sequence is listed below.

Protein Expression: To produce recombinant KAT5 protein, expression plasmid was transformed into E. coli BL21 DE3 strain and grown with shaking at 37°C in 1 L volumes of Terrific broth (TB) supplemented with 100 μg mL Ampicillin and 50 μΜ zinc until an OD600 of 0.8 was reached. Cultures were transferred to 18°C and protein expression induced by the addition of Isopropyl β-D-l -thiogalactopyranoside to a final concentration of 0.5 mM and the cultures shaken overnight for further 16 hours. Following expression, cell cultures were centrifuged at 5000 x g for 20 min and cell pellet stored frozen at -20°C.

Protein Purification: Protein purification was initiated by thawing the cell pellet (25 g wet weight) in Lysis buffer (50 mM Hepes pH 7.4, 500 mM NaCI, 5 mM imidazole, 5% [v/v] glycerol, 0.1 % [w/v] CHAPS, 2 mM 2-mercaptoethanol, 3 mM MgCI 2 , 0.5 mg/mL lysozyme, benzonase endonuclease [EMD Millipore], 1 mM PMSF, complete protease inhibitor tablets EDTA-free [Roche]) using a ratio of 6 mL of buffer per 1 g of cells. Cells were further lysed by sonication using a Misonix Liquid Processor (6 x 30 second pulses, amplitude 60 [70 watts]) and then centrifuged at 48,000 x g at 4°C. Supernatant (cell lysate) was mixed with 20 mL of Q-Sepharose FF resin (GE Healthcare) pre-equilibrated with Q buffer (20 mM Hepes pH 7.4, 1 M NaCI). The unbound fraction from Q-Sepharose FF was then incubated with 5 mL of complete His-Tag Purification Resin (Roche), pre-equilibrated with IMAC Wash Buffer (20 mM hepes pH 7.4, 500 mM NaCI, 35 mM imidazole). The resin was washed with IMAC Wash Buffer, and bound KAT5 eluted with IMAC Elution buffer (20 mM hepes pH 7.4, 500 mM NaCI, 300 mM imidazole). IMAC-eluted protein was immediately desalted into Storage buffer (50 mM Na citrate pH 6.5, 500 mM NaCI, 5% [v/v] glycerol) using 2 x HiPrep 26/10 desalting columns (GE Healthcare) in series. Desalted protein was further purified by passing through a HiLoad 26/60 Superdex 75 column pre-equilibrated in Storage buffer. Finally, KAT5 protein was concentrated to 1 .5 mg/mL using Amicon Ultra centrifugal filter unit (Utra-15 MWCO 10 kDa), flash-frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored in - 70°C freezer.

KAT6A

Molecular Biology: The DNA sequence encoding amino acid residues 507 to 778 (Uniprot Q92794-1 ) of human KAT6A was amplified by PCR and was ligated into a modified pET £. coli expression vector designed to encode a NusA solubility tag followed by a hexahistidine tag and a tobacco etch virus protease (TEV) cleavage site and by the KAT6A sequence. The resulting protein sequence is listed below.

Protein Purification: Protein purification was initiated by thawing the cell pellet (40 g wet weight) in Lysis buffer (25 mM Tris-HCI pH 7.8, 500 mM NaCI, 5 mM DTT, 0.01 % [v/v] Triton-X 100, 5% [v/v] glycerol, 2 mM MgC , 10 mM Imidazole, 0.5 mg/mL lysozyme, benzonase endonuclease [EMD Millipore], 1 mM PMSF, complete protease inhibitor tablets EDTA-free [Roche]) using a ratio of 5 mL of buffer per 1 g of cells. Cells were further lysed by 3 passes (at 15000 psi) through an ice cooled Avestin C5 cell crusher and then centrifuged at 48,000 x g at 4°C. Supernatant (cell lysate) was filtered through a 5 pm filter and applied onto 5 mL HiTrap IMAC Sepharose FF column (GE Healthcare) pre- equilibrated with IMAC wash buffer (25 mM Tris-HCI pH 7.8, 500 mM NaCI, 5 mM DTT, 0.01 % [v/v] Triton-X 100, 5% [v/v] glycerol, 20 mM Imidazole) using a Profinia Affinity chromatography purification system (Bio-Rad). The IMAC column was then washed with IMAC Wash buffer and bound KAT6A protein eluted with IMAC Elution buffer (25 mM Tris- HCI pH 7.8, 500 mM NaCI, 5% [v/v] glycerol, 5 mM DTT, 250 mM Imidazole). IMAC-eluted protein was further purified by passing through a HiLoad 26/60 Superdex 200 column pre- equilibrated in Storage buffer (25 mM Tris-HCI pH 7.8, 500 mM NaCI, 5 mM DTT, 5% [v/v] glycerol). Finally, KAT6A protein was concentrated to < 1 mg/mL using Amicon Ultra centrifugal filter unit (Utra-15 MWCO 10 kDa), flash-frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored in - 70°C freezer.

KAT6B was obtained from SignalChem, catalog ID: K315-381 BG

Protein Expression: To produce recombinant KAT7 protein, expression plasmid was transformed into E. coli BL21 DE3 RIL strain and grown with shaking at 37°C in 1 L volumes of Terrific broth (TB) supplemented with 100 μg mL Ampicillin and 50 μΜ zinc until an OD600 of 0.8 was reached. Cultures were transferred to 18°C and protein expression induced by the addition of Isopropyl β-D-l -thiogalactopyranoside to a final concentration of 0.5 mM and the cultures shaken overnight for further 16 hours. Following expression, cell cultures were centrifuged at 5000 x g for 20 min and cell pellet stored frozen at -20°C.

Protein Purification: Protein purification was initiated by thawing the cell pellet (10 g wet weight) in Lysis buffer (50 mM Hepes pH 7.5, 300 mM NaCI, 5 mM DTT, 5 mM Imidazole, 0.05% [v/v] Brij 35, 10% [v/v] glycerol, 3 mM MgC , 0.5 mg/mL lysozyme, benzonase endonuclease [EMD Millipore], 1 mM PMSF, complete protease inhibitor tablets EDTA-free [Roche]) using a ratio of 10 mL of buffer per 1 g of cells. Cells were further lysed by sonication using a Misonix Liquid Processor (6 x 30 second pulses, amplitude 60 [70 watts]) and then centrifuged at 48,000 x g at 4°C. Supernatant (cell lysate) was incubated with 1 mL of cOmplete His-Tag Purification Resin (Roche), pre-equilibrated with I MAC Wash Buffer 1 (25 mM Hepes pH 7.5, 800 mM NaCI, 5 mM imidazole, 10% [v/v] glycerol, 5 mM DTT, 0.01 % [v/v] Brij 35, 50 mM arginine, 50 mM glutamic acid). The resin was sequentially washed with I MAC Wash buffer 1 and I MAC Wash buffer 2 (25 mM hepes pH 7.5, 300 mM NaCI, 20 mM imidazole, 10% [v/v] glycerol, 5 mM DTT, 0.01 % [v/v] Brij 35, 50 mM arginine, 50 mM glutamic acid). Bound KAT7 protein was eluted with IMAC Elution buffer (25 mM hepes pH 7.5, 200 mM NaCI, 500 mM imidazole, 10% [v/v] glycerol, 5 mM DTT 0.01 % [v/v] Brij 35, 50 mM arginine, 50 mM glutamic acid). The eluting protein was collected directly into 4 volumes of Desalt Buffer (50 mM Na citrate pH 6.5, 200 mM NaCI, 0.01 % [v/v] Brij 35, 10% [v/v] glycerol, 5 mM DTT) to bring the final imidazole concentration to 100 mM. IMAC-eluted protein was immediately desalted into Desalt buffer using 2 x HiPrep 26/10 desalting columns (GE Healthcare) in series. Desalted protein was further purified by passing through a HiLoad 26/60 Superdex 75 column pre-equilibrated in Storage Buffer (50 mM Na citrate pH 6.5, 200 mM NaCI, 10% [v/v] glycerol, 5 mM DTT). Finally, KAT7 protein was concentrated to 3.5 mg/mL using Amicon Ultra centrifugal filter unit (Utra-15 MWCO 10 kDa), flash-frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored in -70°C freezer.

KAT8

Molecular Biology: A codon optimized DNA sequence (for expression in E. coli) encoding amino acid residues 177 to 447 (Uniprot Q9H7Z6-1 ) of human KAT8 was synthesised by Thermo Fisher Scientific GENEART GmbH (Regensberg, Germany). This was ligated into p PRO EX Hta E. coli expression vector designed to encode an N-terminal hexahistidine tag followed by a tobacco etch virus protease (TEV) cleavage site and by the KAT8 sequence. The resulting protein sequence is listed below.

Following expression, cell cultures were centrifuged at 5000 x g for 20 min and cell pellet stored frozen at -20°C.

Protein Purification: Protein purification was initiated by thawing the cell pellet (34 g wet weight) in Lysis buffer (20 mM Hepes pH 7.5, 500 mM NaCI, 5 mM Imidazole, 5% [v/v] glycerol, 0.01 % [v/v] Triton-X 100, 5 mM 2-mercaptoethanol, 2 mM MgC , 0.5 mg/mL lysozyme, benzonase endonuclease [EMD Millipore], 1 mM PMSF, complete protease inhibitor tablets EDTA-free [Roche]) using a ratio of 3 mL of buffer per 1 g of cells. Cells were further lysed by 3 passes (at 15000 psi) through an ice cooled Avestin C5 cell crusher and then centrifuged at 48,000 x g at 4°C. Supernatant (cell lysate) was filtered through a 0.2 μηη filter and applied onto 5 mL HiTrap IMAC Sepharose FF column (GE Healthcare) pre-equilibrated with IMAC wash buffer 1 (20 mM Hepes pH 7.5, 500 mM NaCI, 0.5 mM TCEP, 5 mM Imidazole) using a Profinia Affinity chromatography purification system (Bio- Rad). The IMAC column was then sequentially washed with IMAC Wash buffer 1 and IMAC Wash buffer 2 (20 mM Hepes pH 7.5, 500 mM NaCI, 0.5 mM TCEP, 10 mM Imidazole) and bound KAT8 protein eluted with IMAC Elution buffer (20 mM Hepes pH 7.5, 500 mM NaCI, 0.5 mM TCEP, 500 mM Imidazole). IMAC-eluted protein was further purified by passing through a HiLoad 26/60 Superdex 200 column pre-equilibrated in Storage buffer (20 mM Hepes pH 7.5, 500 mM NaCI, 1 mM TCEP). Finally, KAT8 protein was concentrated to < 0.2 mg/mL using Amicon Ultra centrifugal filter unit (Utra-15 MWCO 10 kDa), flash-frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored in -70°C freezer.

Revised Acetyltransferase Biochemical Assay

To determine the inhibition of KAT enzymatic activity by test compounds, assay

reactions were conducted in a volume of 8 L in 384-well low volume assay plates. The reactions were performed in assay buffer (100 mM Tris-HCI, pH 7.8, 15 mM NaCI, 1 mM EDTA, 0.01 % Tween-20, 1 mM Dithiothreitol, and 0.01 % m/v chicken egg white

albumin).

Reactions were set up with 1 μΜ Acetyl coenzyme A, 100 nM offull-length recombinant histone labelled by limited biotinylation (KAT6A, KAT6B, KAT7: H3.1 , KAT5, KAT8:

H4), 10/ 5/ 8/ 40/ 20 nM of KAT5/KAT6A/KAT6B/KAT7/KAT8 enzyme respectively, and an acetyl-lysine specific antibody (H3.1 : Cell Signaling Technology, H4: Abeam). 1 1 - point dilution series of the test compounds were prepared in DMSO; a volume of 100 nLwas transferred using a pin tool into assay plates containing substrates, before adding enzyme to start the reaction. Positive (no compound, DMSO only) and negative (AcCoA omitted) control reactions were included on the same plates and received the same amount of DMSO as the compound treated wells. After adding all reagents, the plates were sealed with adhesive seals and incubated for 90 min at room temperature. An additional 4 L of assay buffer containing AlphaScreen® Protein A acceptor beads and Streptavidin donor beads (PerkinElmer, Waltham, MA) to a final concentration of 8 g/mL was then added. After incubation for 2 hours the plates were read using an

EnVision 2103 multi label plate reader (PerkinElmer) in HTS AlphaScreen® mode. IC50 values were obtained from the raw readings by calculating percent inhibition (%l) for each reaction relative to controls on the same plate (%I=(I-CN)/(CP-CN) where CN/ CP are the averages of the negative/ positive reactions, respectively), then fitting the %l data vs. compound concentration [I] to %I=(A+((B-A)/(1 +((C/[I]) A D)))) where A is the lower asymptote, B is the upper asymptote, C is the IC50 value, and D is the slope.

Histone H3 Lysine 14 Acetylation Biomarker Assay

Compounds may be tested for their ability to inhibit acetylation of the histone H3 Lysine 14 (which is HB01 mediated) marker in the following assay:

The cell line U20S was seeded at a density of 3,000 cells per well in 384-well optical quality tissue culture plates in RPMI medium supplemented with 10% foetal bovine serum and 10 mM Hepes. The cells were allowed to adhere for 24 hours under standard culture conditions (37 degree Celsius, 5% C02). At the end of this period the cells were washed with serum free medium. Compound dilutions prepared in DMSO were added to the serum free medium, with negative control wells reserved for treatment with DMSO only and 100% inhibition positive controls receiving a potent inhibitor compound (e.g. (Z)-4-fluoro-/V-((3- hydroxyphenyl)sulfonyl)-5-methyl-[1 ,1 '-biphenyl]-3-carbohydrazonic acid) at 10 μΜ concentration. After incubation for 24 hours, the cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde in PBS for 15 minutes at room temperature, washed with phosphate buffer saline and blocked with blocking buffer containing 0.2% TritonX100 and 2% BSA. Anti-H3K14ac specific antibody (Cell Signalling Technologies) in blocking buffer was added and incubated overnight at 4 degree Celsius. After washing, a secondary antibody labelled with

AlexaFluor 488 dye (ThermoFisher) and Hoechst 33342 (1 μg mL, Life Technologies) were added for 2 hours incubation at room temperature. Plates were washed and read on a

PerkinElmer Opera HCS high content imaging platform. Using a Columbus image analysis pipeline, individual nuclei were located by Hoechst 33342 stain and the acetylation level was calculated from the AlexaFluor 488-related intensity in the same area. The resulting mean intensity per cell was converted to percent inhibition relative to controls on the same plate and the data fitted against a four-parameter logistic model to determine the 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50).

The results are shown in Table 13 below:

H2A.Z Lysine 7 Acetylation Biomarker Assay

Compounds may be tested for their ability to inhibit the histone H2A.Z Lysine 7 acetylation marker (which is TIP60 mediated) in the following assay:

The cell line U20S was seeded at a density of 3,000 cells per well in 384-well optical quality tissue culture plates in RPMI medium supplemented with 10% foetal bovine serum and 10 mM Hepes. The cells were allowed to adhere for 24 hours under standard culture conditions (37 degree Celsius, 5% CO2). At the end of this period the cells were washed with serum free medium. Compound dilutions prepared in DMSO were added to the serum free medium, with negative control wells reserved for treatment with DMSO only and 100% inhibition positive controls receiving a potent inhibitor compound enantiomer 1 of 7-iodo-/V- (2-(oxazol-2-yl)-2-phenylethyl)-2/-/-benzo[e][1 ,2,4]thiadiazine-3-carboxamide 1 ,1 -dioxide, which is compound 146, at 30 μΜ concentration. After incubation for 24 hours, the cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde in PBS for 15 minutes at room temperature, washed with phosphate buffer saline and blocked with blocking buffer containing 0.2% TritonX100 and 2% BSA. Anti-H2A.ZK7ac specific antibody (Abeam) in blocking buffer was added and incubated overnight at 4 degree Celsius. After washing, a secondary antibody labelled with AlexaFluor 488 dye (ThermoFisher) and Hoechst 33342 (1 μg mL, Life Technologies) were added for 2 hours incubation at room temperature. Plates were washed and read on a PerkinElmer Opera HCS high content imaging platform. Using a Columbus image analysis pipeline, individual nuclei were located by Hoechst 33342 stain and the acetylation level was calculated from the AlexaFluor 488-related intensity in the same area. The resulting mean intensity per cell was converted to percent inhibition relative to controls on the same plate and the data fitted against a four-parameter logistic model to determine the 50% inhibitory concentration (ICso).

Histone H3 Lysine 23 Acetylation Biomarker Assay Compounds may be tested for their ability to inhibit acetylation of the histone H3K23 marker, which is KAT6 mediated, in the following assay:

The cell line U20S was seeded at a density of 9,000 cells per well in 96 well optical quality tissue culture plates in RPMI medium and 10% foetal bovine serum, and allowed to adhere for 24 hours under standard culture conditions (37 degree Celsius, 5% C02). At the end of this period the medium was aspirated. Compound dilutions prepared in DMSO were added to medium, with negative control wells reserved for treatment with DMSO only and 100% inhibition positive controls receiving a potent inhibitor compound (e.g. cas 2055397-28-7, benzoic acid, 3-fluoro-5-(2-pyridinyl)-, 2-[(2-fluorophenyl)sulfonyl]hydrazide) (Baell, J., Nguyen, H.N., Leaver, D.J., Cleary, B.L., Lagiakos, H.R., Sheikh, B.N., Thomas. T.J., Aryl sulfonohydrazides, WO2016198507A1 , 2016) at 10 μΜ concentration and 200 μΙ_ transferred to the cells. After incubation for 24 hours, the cells were fixed with 3.7% formaldehyde in PBS for 20 minutes at room temperature, washed (5 x 5 minutes) with phosphate buffer saline containing 0.1 %Tween 20 and blocked with Odyssey blocking buffer (LI-COR, Lincoln, NE) containing 0.1 %TritonX100. Anti-H3K23ac specific antibody (Abeam ab177275) in Odyssey blocking buffer containing 0.1 %Tween 20 was added and incubated for 16 hours at 4 degree Celsius. After washing (as above), a secondary antibody labelled with Alexa647 dye (LifeTechnologies) and Hoechst 33342 (1 μg mL, SigmaAldrich) were added for 1 hour incubation. Plates were washed as previously and read on a PerkinElmer Phenix high content imaging platform. Using a Columbus image analysis pipeline, individual nuclei were located by Hoechst 33342 stain and the acetylation level was calculated from the Alexa647-related intensity in the same area. The resulting mean intensity per cell was directly converted to percent inhibition relative to controls on the same plate and the data fitted against a four-parameter logistic model to determine the 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50).
