Selective Inhibitors of Nuclear Export (SINE)

These agents act on tumor suppressor proteins (TSPs), growth regulators, and mRNAs of oncogenic proteins by blocking exportin 1 (XPO1). Inhibition of XPO1 leads to accumulation of TSPs in the nucleus, reductions in several oncoproteins (eg, c‐myc, cyclin D1), cell cycle arrest, and apoptosis of cancer cells.

Selinexor (Xpovio)

Selinexor is the first oral selective inhibitor of nuclear export (SINE) compound. It is indicated for relapsed or refractory DLBCL, not otherwise specified, including DLBCL arising from follicular lymphoma, in patients previously treated with at least 2 lines of systemic therapy.
