Inside Cover: Disruption of Transcriptionally Active Stat3 Dimers with Non-phosphorylated, Salicylic Acid-Based Small Molecules: Potent in vitro and Tumor Cell Activities (ChemBioChem 12/2009)
The inside cover picture shows the culmination of a rational drug discovery program of Stat3 inhibitors. Computational modeling of the most potent salicylic acid-based therapeutic shows excellent occupation of the Stat3-SH2 domain, thereby inhibiting its homodimerization. For details, see the communication by P. T. Gunning et al. on p. 1959 ff.
