Analysis of the x-ray crystal structure of mono-substituted acetylenic thienopyrimidine 6 complexed with the ErbB family enzyme ErbB-4 revealed a covalent bond between the terminal carbon of the acetylene moiety and the sulfhydryl group of Cys-803 at the solvent interface. The identification of this covalent adduct suggested that acetylenic thienopyrimidine(More)
The PharmPrint methodology, as modified and implemented by Deanda and Stewart, was prospectively evaluated for use as a virtual high-throughput screening tool by applying it to the design of target-focused arrays. To this end, PharmPrint quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models for the prediction of AKT1, Aurora-A, and ROCK1 inhibition(More)
The cytolethal distending toxins (CDTs) comprise a family of intracellular-acting bacterial protein toxins whose actions upon eukaryotic cells result in several consequences, the most characteristic of which is the induction of G(2)/M cell cycle arrest. Most CDTs are hetero-tripartite assemblies of CdtA, CdtB, and CdtC, with CdtB required for CDT-mediated(More)
A novel class of substituted pyrrolidinyl-acetylenic thieno[3,2-d]pyrimidines has been identified that are potent and selective inhibitors of both EGFR/ErbB-2 receptor tyrosine kinases. The inhibitors are found to display a range of enzyme and cellular potency and also to display a varying level of covalent modification of the kinase targets. Selected(More)
A novel class of pyrrolidinyl-acetyleneic thieno[3,2-d]pyrimidines has been identified which potently inhibit the EGFR and ErbB-2 receptor tyrosine kinases. Synthetic modifications of the pyrrolidine carbamate moiety result in a range of effects on enzyme and cellular potency. In addition, the impact of the absolute stereochemical configuration on cellular(More)
A novel series of pyrazolo[1,5-b]pyridazines have been synthesized and identified as cyclin dependant kinase inhibitors potentially useful for the treatment of solid tumors. Modification of the hinge-binding amine or the C(2)- and C(6)-substitutions on the pyrazolopyridazine core provided potent inhibitors of CDK4 and demonstrated enzyme selectivity against(More)
Anilinoalkynylpyrimidines were prepared and evaluated as dual EGFR/ErbB2 kinase inhibitors. A preference was found for substituted phenyl and heteroaromatic rings attached to the alkyne. In addition, the presence of a potential hydrogen bond donor appended to this ring was favored. Selected molecules in the series demonstrated some activity against human(More)
