A series of benzimidazole based HDAC inhibitors have been rationally designed, synthesized and screened. The SAR of this new chemotype is described. The lead compound, 11e, showed strong activity in several cellular assays and demonstrated in vivo efficacy in mouse xenograft pancreatic cancer models.
Autophagy is a conserved cellular pathway used to recycle nutrients through lysosomal breakdown basally and under times of stress (e.g., nutrient deprivation, chemotherapeutic treatment). Oncogenes are known to induce autophagy, which may be exploited by cancers for cell survival. To identify autophagy inhibitors with potential therapeutic value for cancer,(More)
