Sulforaphane is a small molecule isothiocyanate which exhibits
anticancer potential, yet its biological targets remain poorly understood.
Here we employ a competition-based chemical proteomics strategy to
profile sulforaphane’s targets and identify over 500 targets along with
their relative affinities. These targets provide a new set of mediators
for sulforaphane’s bioactivity, and aid understanding of its complex
mode of action.
