Herein we chronicle the discovery of CX-4945 (25n), a first-in-class, orally bioavailable ATP-competitive inhibitor of protein kinase CK2 in clinical trials for cancer. CK2 has long been considered a prime cancer drug target because of the roles of deregulated and overexpressed CK2 in cancer-promoting prosurvival and antiapoptotic pathways. These biological(More)
In this article we describe the preclinical characterization of 5-(3-chlorophenylamino) benzo[c][2,6]naphthyridine-8-carboxylic acid (CX-4945), the first orally available small molecule inhibitor of protein CK2 in clinical trials for cancer. CX-4945 was optimized as an ATP-competitive inhibitor of the CK2 holoenzyme (Ki = 0.38 nM). Iterative synthesis and(More)
