About ST101

ST101 is a peptide inhibitor of C/EBPβ, which is a transcription factor overexpressed in many cancers that regulate cellular differentiation and promote tumor survival and proliferation. ST101 significantly decreases the expression of C/EBPβ target genes/proteins involved in cell survival, proliferation and differentiation including BCL-2, MCL-1, BIRC5/survivin, cyclins and ID family of proteins. ST101 has been demonstrated to induce selective cancer cell cytotoxicity across a variety of tumor types, including but not limited to breast cancer, melanoma, prostate cancer, GBM, lung cancer, and AML. C/EBPβ is expressed and active in cancer cells but not active in normal cells (post-differentiation), providing a therapeutic opportunity.
