Up to 30% of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) patients harbor an activating internal tandem duplication (ITD) within the juxtamembrane domain of the FLT3 receptor, suggesting that it may be a target for kinase inhibitor therapy. For this purpose we have developed CT53518, a potent antagonist that inhibits FLT3, platelet-derived growth factor receptor(More)
Protease-activated receptor 1 (PAR1) is the prototypical member of a family of G-protein-coupled receptors that mediate cellular responses to thrombin and related proteases. Thrombin irreversibly activates PAR1 by cleaving the amino-terminal exodomain of the receptor, which exposes a tethered peptide ligand that binds the heptahelical bundle of the receptor(More)
Based on genetic studies that establish the role of spleen tyrosine kinase (Syk) in immune function, inhibitors of this kinase are being investigated as therapeutic agents for inflammatory diseases. Because genetic studies eliminate both adapter functions and kinase activity of Syk, it is difficult to delineate the effect of kinase inhibition alone as would(More)
Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and the role of SYK in its pathogenesis is not completely understood. Using tissue microarray, we demonstrated for the first time that SYK protein is activated in 27 of 61 (44%) primary human DLBCL tissues. Among DLBCL cell lines, 7 were sensitive and 3 were resistant to(More)
We have previously found that the 4-[4-(N-substituted carbamoyl)-1-piperazinyl]-6,7-dimethoxyquinazolines can function as potent and selective inhibitors of platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR) phosphorylation. A series of highly potent, specific, orally active, small molecule kinase inhibitors directed against members of PDGFR receptor have been(More)
B-cell receptor (BCR) associated kinases including spleen tyrosine kinase (SYK) contribute to the pathogenesis of B-cell malignancies. SYK is persistently phosphorylated in a subset of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and SYK inhibition results in abrogation of downstream kinase activity and apoptosis. P505-15 (also known(More)
Clinical studies with clopidogrel or prasugrel show that although increased inhibition of P2Y(12) and platelet function improves efficacy, bleeding is also increased. Other preclinical and clinical studies have suggested a greater therapeutic index (TI) with reversible inhibitors and disproportionate effects of thienopyridines on bleeding at high doses. We(More)
CLEC-2 is a member of new family of C-type lectin receptors characterized by a cytosolic YXXL downstream of three acidic amino acids in a sequence known as a hemITAM (hemi-immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif). Dimerization of two phosphorylated CLEC-2 molecules leads to recruitment of the tyrosine kinase Syk via its tandem SH2 domains and(More)
The heterogeneity and severity of certain autoimmune diseases and B-cell malignancies warrant simultaneous targeting of multiple disease-relevant signaling pathways. Dual inhibition of spleen tyrosine kinase (SYK) and Janus kinase (JAK) represents such a strategy and may elicit several benefits relative to selective kinase inhibition, such as gaining(More)
In our efforts to develop orally active GPIIb-IIIa antagonists with improved pharmaceutical properties, we have utilized a novel 2,8-diazaspiro[4.5]decane scaffold as a template. We describe here our investigation of a variety of templates including spiropiperidinyl-gamma-lactams, spiropiperidinylimide, spiropiperidinylureas, and spiropiperidinylhydantoins.(More)
