Significant effort is being made to understand the role of HDAC isotypes in human cancer and to develop antitumor agents with better therapeutic windows. A part of this endeavor was the exploration of the 14 A internal cavity adjacent to the enzyme catalytic site, which led to the design and synthesis of compound 4 with the unusual bis(aryl)-type(More)
Histone deacetylases (HDACs) and histone acetyltransferases (HATs) are enzymes that catalyze the deacetylation and acetylation of lysine residues located in the NH(2) terminal tails of histones and non-histone proteins. Perturbation of this balance is often observed in human cancers and inhibition of HDACs has emerged as a novel therapeutic strategy against(More)
The design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of N-(2-aminophenyl)-4-[(4-pyridin-3-ylpyrimidin-2-ylamino)methyl]benzamide 8 (MGCD0103) is described. Compound 8 is an isotype-selective small molecule histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor that selectively inhibits HDACs 1-3 and 11 at submicromolar concentrations in vitro. 8 blocks cancer cell proliferation(More)
Analogues of the clinical compound MGCD0103 (A) were designed and synthesized. These compounds inhibit recombinant human HDAC1 with IC(50) values in the sub-micromolar range. In human cancer cells growing in culture these compounds induce hyperacetylation of histones, cause expression of the tumor suppressor protein p21(WAF1/CIP1), and inhibit cellular(More)
The synthesis and biological evaluation of a variety of 4-(heteroarylaminomethyl)-N-(2-aminophenyl)-benzamides and their analogs is described. Some of these compounds were shown to inhibit HDAC1 with IC(50) values below the micromolar range, induce hyperacetylation of histones, upregulate expression of the tumor suppressor p21(WAF1/Cip1), and inhibit(More)
A variety of N-(2-amino-phenyl)-4-(heteroarylmethyl)-benzamides were designed and synthesized. These compounds were shown to inhibit recombinant human HDAC1 with IC(50) values in the sub-micromolar range. In human cancer cells growing in culture these compounds induced hyperacetylation of histones, induced the expression of the tumor suppressor protein(More)
Inhibition of histone deacetylases (HDACs) is emerging as a new strategy in human cancer therapy. Novel 2-aminophenyl benzamides and acrylamides, that can inhibit human HDAC enzymes and induce hyperacetylation of histones in human cancer cells, have been designed and synthesized. These compounds selectively inhibit proliferation and cause cell cycle arrest(More)
Inhibition of histone deacetylases (HDAC) is emerging as a new strategy in human cancer therapy. The synthesis and biological evaluation of a variety of 4-(heteroarylaminomethyl)-N-(2-aminophenyl)-benzamides is presented herein. From the different series bearing a six-membered heteroaromatic ring studied, the s-triazine series showed the best HDAC1 enzyme(More)
The paper examines the factors that affect the formation of delaminations under C4 joints during chip joining. Through multiscale finite element modeling and chip joining experiments we find that two important parameters determining the susceptibility to C4 delaminations (white bumps) are the effective modulus of the low-K levels in the BEOL stack and the(More)
