Substituted N-(4-(2-aminopyridin-4-yloxy)-3-fluoro-phenyl)-1-(4-fluorophenyl)-2-oxo-1,2-dihydropyridine-3-carboxamides were identified as potent and selective Met kinase inhibitors. Substitution of the pyridine 3-position gave improved enzyme potency, while substitution of the pyridone 4-position led to improved aqueous solubility and kinase selectivity.(More)
A series of substituted 4-(4-fluoro-1H-indol-5-yloxy)pyrrolo[2,1-f][1,2,4]triazine-based inhibitors of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 kinase is reported. Structure-activity relationship studies revealed that a methyl group at the 5-position and a substituted alkoxy group at the 6-position of the pyrrolo[2,1-f][1,2,4]triazine core gave potent(More)
A series of amino acid ester prodrugs of the dual VEGFR-2/FGFR-1 kinase inhibitor 1 (BMS-540215) was prepared in an effort to improve the aqueous solubility and oral bioavailability of the parent compound. These prodrugs were evaluated for their ability to liberate parent drug 1 in in vitro and in vivo systems. The l-alanine prodrug 8 (also known as(More)
An amide library derived from the pyrrolo[2,1-f][1,2,4]triazine scaffold led to the identification of modest inhibitors of Met kinase activity. Introduction of polar side chains at C-6 of the pyrrolotriazine core provided significant improvements in in vitro potency. The amide moiety could be replaced with acylurea and malonamide substituents to give(More)
A series of substituted 4-(2,4-difluoro-5-(methoxycarbamoyl)phenylamino)pyrrolo[2,1-f][1,2,4]triazines was identified as potent and selective inhibitors of the tyrosine kinase activity of the growth factor receptors VEGFR-2 (Flk-1, KDR) and FGFR-1. The enzyme kinetics associated with the VEGFR-2 inhibition of compound 50 (K(i) = 52 +/- 3 nM) confirmed that(More)
Tumor angiogenesis is a complex and tightly regulated network mediated by various proangiogenic factors. The fibroblast growth factor (FGF) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family of growth factors, and associated tyrosine kinase receptors have a major influence in tumor growth and dissemination and may work synergistically to promote(More)
Biarylamine-based inhibitors of Met kinase have been identified. Lead compounds demonstrate nanomolar potency in Met kinase biochemical assays and significant activity in the Met-driven GTL-16 human gastric carcinoma cell line. X-ray crystallography revealed that these compounds adopt a bioactive conformation, in the kinase domain, consistent with that(More)
The pyrrolo[2,1-f][1,2,4]triazine nucleus was identified as a novel kinase inhibitor template which effectively mimics the well-known quinazoline kinase inhibitor scaffold. Attachment of a 4-((3-chloro-4-fluorophenyl)amino) substituent to the template provided potent biochemical inhibitors of the tyrosine kinase activity of EGFR, as well as inhibition of(More)
The effects of ketamine on locomotion in an open-field were determined in hooded rats. Animals were given intraperitoneal injections of saline, or of 1, 10, 50 or 100 mg ketamine/kg body weight on separate days. Open-field behavior was examined for 60 min following injection. The 50 mg/kg dose of ketamine produced an increase in locomotion which peaked(More)
Activation of CDK4 is regulated, in part, by its association with a D-type cyclin. Conversely, CDK4 activity is inhibited when it is bound to the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor, p16(INK4A). To investigate the molecular basis of the interactions between CDK4 and cyclin D1 or p16(INK4A) we performed site-directed mutagenesis of CDK4. The interaction was(More)
