Hsp90 is a molecular chaperone implicated in many diseases including cancer and neurodegenerative disease. Most inhibitors target the ATPase site in Hsp90's N-terminal domain, with relatively few inhibitors of other domains reported to date. Here, we show that peptides derived from a short helix at the C-terminus of Hsp90 show micromolar activity as Hsp90 inhibitors in vitro. These inhibitors do n... read more
