Monopolar spindle 1 (Mps1) is an attractive cancer drug target due to the important role that it plays in centrosome duplication, the spindle assembly checkpoint, and the maintenance of chromosomal stability. A design based on JNK inhibitors with an aminopyridine scaffold and subsequent modifications identified diaminopyridine 9 with an IC50 of 37 nM. The(More)
Monopolar spindle 1 (Mps1) is essential for centrosome duplication, the spindle assembly check point, and the maintenance of chromosomal instability. Mps1 is highly expressed in cancer cells, and its expression levels correlate with the histological grades of cancers. Thus, selective Mps1 inhibitors offer an attractive opportunity for the development of(More)
In this study, we tried to establish a general scheme to create a model that could predict the affinity of small compounds to their target proteins. This scheme consists of a search for ligand-binding sites on a protein, a generation of bound conformations (poses) of ligands in each of the sites by docking, identifications of the correct poses of each(More)
