Bcl-xL is an antiapoptotic member of the Bcl-2 protein family and an attractive target for the development of anticancer agents. Here we describe the isolation of binders to Bcl-xL from a DNA-encoded chemical library using affinity-capture selections and massively parallel high-throughput sequencing of >30,000 sequence tags of library members. The most potent binder identified, compound 19/93 [(R)-3-(amido indomethacin)-4-(naphthalen-1-yl)butanoic acid], bound to Bcl-xL with a dissociation constant (K(d)) of 930 nM and was able to compete with a Bak-derived BH3 peptide, an antagonist of Bcl-xL function.
