The CB2 receptor is an attractive therapeutic target for analgesic and anti-inflammatory agents. Herein we describe the discovery of a novel class of oxadiazole derivatives from which potent and selective CB2 agonist leads were developed. Initial hit 7 was identified from a cannabinoid target-biased library generated by virtual screening of sample(More)
The structure-activity relationships (SAR) of a novel class of Src SH2 inhibitors are described. Variation at the pY+1 and pY+3 side chain positions using 2,4- and 2,5-substituted thiazoles and 1,2,4-oxadiazoles as scaffolds resulted in inhibitors that bound as well as the standard tetrapeptide Ac-pYEEI-NH2.
The lymphocyte-specific kinase (Lck) is a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase of the Src family expressed in T cells and natural killer (NK) cells. Genetic evidence in both mice and humans demonstrates that Lck kinase activity is critical for signaling mediated by the T cell receptor (TCR), which leads to normal T cell development and activation. Selective(More)
Clinical human genetic studies have recently identified the tetrodotoxin (TTX) sensitive neuronal voltage gated sodium channel Nav1.7 (SCN9A) as a critical mediator of pain sensitization. Herein, we report structure-activity relationships for a novel series of 2,4-diaminotriazines that inhibit hNav1.7. Optimization efforts culminated in compound 52, which(More)

Genetic evidence in both mice and humans demonstrates that Lck kinase activity is critical for signaling mediated by the T cell receptor (TCR), which leads to normal T cell development and activation. A small molecule inhibitor of Lck(More)
4-Amino-5,6-biaryl-furo[2,3-d]pyrimidines were identified as potent non-selective inhibitors of Lck. A novel, divergent, and practical synthetic route was developed to access derivatives from bifunctional intermediates. Lead optimization was guided by X-ray crystallographic data, and preliminary SAR led to the identification of compounds with improved(More)
