  • Publication number: 20200147120
    Abstract: The present invention provides an anticancer agent based on a novel mechanism. Specifically, the present invention relates to an inhibitor that inhibits gene expression regulation by SWI/SNF complex-dependent NF-?B or a corepressor complex that participate in chromatin remodeling. More specifically, the present invention provides an inhibitor that reduces the interaction (such as binding and transcription regulation) of endogenous SWI/SNF complexes with NF-?B or a corepressor complex, or an inhibitor that inhibits the adapter function of d4 family proteins. The inhibitor of the present invention can be utilized in the treatment of cancers involving SWI/SNF complexes (such as SWI/SNF-mediated cancers).

  • Publication number: 20200048175
    Abstract: A method for producing at least one oxidation product selected from the group consisting of acrolein and acrylic acid is provided. This method can alleviate concerns about deterioration of a gas-phase oxidation catalyst and reaction runaway in a restart period after a shutdown, and can allow the reaction to proceed in a stable state. Using a fixed-bed reactor filled with a gas-phase oxidation catalyst, at least one source gas selected from the group consisting of propylene and acrolein is subjected to a gas-phase contact oxidation reaction while a heating medium is caused to contact with or circulate through the fixed-bed reactor and thereby to heat the fixed-bed reactor. The temperature of the heating medium when the load is maximum in the restart period after the shutdown is controlled to be lower than the temperature of the heating medium when the load is maximum in an initial start-up period.
