Targeted Protein Degradation
Compound-induced protein degradation exploits small molecule compounds that connect protein targets and E3 ligases facilitating recruitment to the proteasome and endogenous degradation. Two of the more common types of compounds of interest for drug discovery and development are "molecular glues" and proteolysis-targeting chimeras (PROTACs).
