3-Deazaneplanocin A (DZNep, C-c3Ado) is a drug which acts as both a S-adenosylhomocysteine synthesis inhibitor and also a histone methyltransferase EZH2 inhibitor. Studies have shown that it has in vitro against a variety of different tumor cell lines.[1][2][3][4][5]

In studies on mice, the drug was also found to be effective for the treatment of Ebola virus disease,[6] apparently interfering with the Ebola viruses ability to block interferon production, thus restoring the ability of immune system to rid the body of ebolavirus.[7][8]
