A novel class of 4-pyridinoxy-2-anilinopyridine-based TGF-beta type I receptor (also known as activin-like kinase 5 or ALK5) inhibitors is reported. The binding mode of this scaffold was successfully predicted by analyzing possible docked binding modes of literature inhibitors and novel synthetic ideas. Compounds such as 19 are potent ALK5 inhibitors with(More)
The discovery of an orally bioavailable selective estrogen receptor downregulator (SERD) with equivalent potency and preclinical pharmacology to the intramuscular SERD fulvestrant is described. A directed screen identified the 1-aryl-2,3,4,9-tetrahydro-1H-pyrido[3,4-b]indole motif as a novel, druglike ER ligand. Aided by crystal structures of novel ligands(More)
A series of tetrahydroisoquinoline phenols was modified to give an estrogen receptor downregulator-antagonist profile. Optimization around the core, alkyl side chain, and pendant aryl ring resulted in compounds with subnanomolar levels of potency. The phenol functionality was shown to be required to achieve highly potent compounds, but unusually this was(More)
Pyridomycin, a natural product with potent antituberculosis activity, inhibits a major drug target, the InhA enoyl reductase. Here, we unveil the co-crystal structure and unique ability of pyridomycin to block both the NADH cofactor- and lipid substrate-binding pockets of InhA. This is to our knowledge a first-of-a-kind binding mode that discloses a new(More)
