Structure of selective small molecule inhibitor of LOX-1, BI-0115
1 min read

BI-0115 inhibits the C-type lectin family member lectin-like oxidized LDL-receptor-1 (LOX-1) by stabilizing an inactive tetrameric form of the protein. Interestingly, co-crystollography demonstrates that inter-ligand interactions between two BI-0115 molecules contribute to the dimerization of LOX-1 homodimers.
