The bromodomain containing proteins BAZ2A/B play essential roles in chromatin remodeling and regulation of noncoding RNAs. We present the structure based discovery of a potent, selective, and cell active inhibitor 13 (BAZ2-ICR) of the BAZ2A/B bromodomains through rapid optimization of a weakly potent starting point. A key feature of the presented inhibitors is an intramolecular aromatic stacking interaction that efficiently occupies the shallow bromodomain pockets. 13 represents an excellent chemical probe for functional studies of the BAZ2 bromodomains in vitro and in vivo.
