SLPI (secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor) is a 107-residue non-glycosylated protease inhibitor, which inhibits a wide range of serine proteases, trypsin, chymotrypsin, neutrophil elastase, chymase and cathepsin G. X-ray crystallographic analyses have shown that SLPI comprises two separate domains of similar architecture [Grütter, Fendrich, Huber & Bode(More)
A novel class of mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase 2 (MAPKAP-K2) inhibitors was discovered through screening a kinase-focused library. A homology model of MAPKAP-K2 was generated and used to guide the initial SAR studies and to rationalize the observed selectivity over CDK2. An X-ray crystal structure of a compound from the active(More)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase 2 (MK2 or MAPKAP-K2) is a Ser/Thr kinase from the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase signalling pathway and plays an important role in inflammatory diseases. The crystal structure of the MK2-TEI-I01800 complex has been reported; its Gly-rich loop was found to form an α-helix, not a β-sheet as has(More)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase 2 (MAPKAP-K2 or MK2) is a Ser/Thr kinase from the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase signalling pathway and plays an important role in inflammatory diseases. The crystal structure of the complex of human MK2 (residues 41-364) with the potent MK2 inhibitor TEI-I01800 (pK(i) = 6.9) was determined at(More)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase 2 (MK2 or MAPKAP-K2), a serine/threonine kinase from the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase signalling pathway, plays an important role in the production of TNF-α and other cytokines. In a previous report, it was shown that MK2 in complex with the selective inhibitor TEI-I01800 adopts an α-helical(More)
