GEF-Inhibitors: New small molecules for the treatment of autoimmune and malignant diseases

Scientists at the University of Bonn have identified new small molecules which can be used for the treatment of diseases characterized by alterations of proteins which are affected by Guanine nucleotide Exchange Factors (GEFs). Proteins targeted by GEFs are involved in integrin signalling, vesicle transport, or MAPK-signalling. These processes play an important role in the modulation of the immune response. Therefore, abnormal activation of the target proteins of GEFs can cause autoimmune and tumor diseases in humans.
