Celgene will pay Acetylon Pharmaceuticals $100 million up front to develop three drug candidates that block histone deacetylases, enzymes that remove an amino group from histone, thereby regulating DNA expression. The deal includes an option for Celgene to acquire the Boston-based epigenetics firm for up to $1.1 billion. The pact is Celgene’s second in epigenetics.
