The P21-activated kinases (PAK) are emerging antitumor therapeutic targets. In this paper, we describe the discovery of potent PAK inhibitors guided by structure-based drug design. In addition, the efflux of the pyrrolopyrazole series was effectively reduced by applying multiple medicinal chemistry strategies, leading to a series of PAK inhibitors that are(More)
Pteridinones were designed based on a non-selective kinase template. Because of the uniqueness of the PI3K and mTOR binding pockets, a methyl group was introduced to C-4 position of the peteridinone core to give compounds with excellent selectivity for PI3K and mTOR. This series of compounds were further optimized to improve their potency against PI3Kα and(More)
HIV-1 integrase (IN) is one of three enzymes encoded by the HIV genome and is essential for viral replication. Recently, HIV-1 IN inhibitors have emerged as a new promising class of therapeutics. Herein, we report the discovery of azaindole carboxylic acids and azaindole hydroxamic acids as potent inhibitors of the HIV-1 IN enzyme and their(More)
A series of novel hydantoins was designed and synthesized as structural alternatives to hydroxamate inhibitors of TACE. 5-Mono- and di-substituted hydantoins exhibited activity with IC50 values of 11-60 nM against porcine TACE in vitro and excellent selectivity against other MMPs.
A BODIPY-based 1 as a colorimetric fluorescence sensor was synthesized, and its metal sensing property was investigated. 1 displayed high selectivity and sensitivity towards Hg(2+) and Cu(2+) ions among 15 different metal cations. The addition of Hg(2+) and Cu(2+) ions into 1 in CH3CN resulted in a significant bathochromic shift of the UV absorption spectra(More)
HIV-1 integrase is one of three enzymes encoded by the HIV genome and is essential for viral replication, and HIV-1 IN inhibitors have emerged as a new promising class of therapeutics. Recently, we reported the discovery of azaindole hydroxamic acids that were potent inhibitors of the HIV-1 IN enzyme. N-Methyl hydroxamic acids were stable against oxidative(More)
Recently, an X-ray co-crystal structure of our hydroxamate inhibitor IK682 and TACE [Niu, X.; Umland, S.; Ingram, R.; Beyer, B. M.; Liu, Y.-H.; Sun, J.; Lundell, D.; Orth, P. Arch. Biochem. Biophys. 2006, 451, 43-50] was published that explicitly shows the orientation of the hydroxamate and the TACE-selective 4-[(2-methyl-4-quinolinyl)methoxy]phenyl P1'(More)
