We recently reported on the development of a novel series of BRAF inhibitors based on a tripartite A-B-C system characterized by a para-substituted central aromatic core connected to an imidazo[4,5]pyridin-2-one scaffold and a substituted urea linker. Here, we present a new series of BRAF inhibitors in which the central phenyl ring connects to the hinge(More)
Mutated BRAF serine/threonine kinase is implicated in several types of cancer, with particularly high frequency in melanoma and colorectal carcinoma. We recently reported on the development of BRAF inhibitors based on a tripartite A-B-C system featuring an imidazo[4,5]pyridin-2-one group hinge binder. Here we present the design, synthesis, and optimization(More)
V-RAF murine sarcoma viral oncogene homolog B1 (BRAF) is a serine/threonine-specific protein kinase that is mutated with high frequency in cutaneous melanoma, and many other cancers. Inhibition of mutant BRAF is an attractive therapeutic approach for the treatment of melanoma. A triarylimidazole BRAF inhibitor bearing a phenylpyrazole group(More)
We describe the design, synthesis, and optimization of a series of new inhibitors of V-RAF murine sarcoma viral oncogene homologue B1 (BRAF), a kinase whose mutant form (V600E) is implicated in several types of cancer, with a particularly high frequency in melanoma. Our previously described inhibitors with a tripartite A-B-C system (where A is a hinge(More)
The RAS-RAF-MEK-ERK pathway is hyperactivated in 30% of human cancers. BRAF is a serine-threonine kinase, belonging to this pathway that is mutated with high frequency in human melanoma and other cancers thus BRAF is an important therapeutic target in melanoma. We have designed inhibitors of BRAF based on 2,4,5-trisubstituted imidazoles with naphthyl and(More)
