About bromodomain proteins

BET bromodomain proteins play an important role in regulation of gene expression, which thereby affect inflammatory responses and the ability of cancer cells to sustain growth and survive. The human proteome comprises 46 bromodomain-containing proteins, many of which are thought to be involved in cancer, inflammation and cardiovascular disease.
