Checkpoint deficiency of malignant cells can be exploited in cancer drug discovery. Compounds that selectively kill checkpoint-deficient cells versus checkpoint-proficient cells can be utilized to preferentially target tumor cells, while sparing normal cells. The protein p21(Wafl/Cipl/Sdi1) (hereafter referred to as p21) inhibits progression of the cell(More)
A novel series of p21 chemoselective agents containing a pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidin-7-yl phenyl amides were identified by high throughput screening. Optimization of the amide region by parallel synthesis and the iterative design toward understanding structure-activity relationship to improve potency are described. The isopropyl carbamate derivative 34 was(More)
The naturally occurring pyranonaphthoquinone (PNQ) antibiotic lactoquinomycin and related aglycones were found to be selective inhibitors of the serine-threonine kinase AKT. A set of synthetic PNQs were prepared and a minimum active feature set and preliminary SAR were determined. PNQ lactones inhibit the proliferation of human tumor cell lines containing(More)
New 4-phenylamino-3-quinolinecarbonitriles with a 7-ethynyl group substituted by a pyridine, phenyl or thiophene ring containing basic water solubilizing groups were prepared and evaluated as Src kinase inhibitors. Of these new analogs, potent activity was observed with compounds having a (2,4-dichloro-5-methoxyphenyl)amino group at C-4, a methoxy or ethoxy(More)
