Inhibitors of Autotaxin

Autotaxin (ATX) is an enzyme that makes extracellular lysophosphatidate (LPA) and lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC). ATX is involved in wound healing, inflammation, tumor growth, metastasis, and chemo-resistance. Understanding ATXs role in cell signaling and how it is regulated is important for several physiological and pathological conditions.
