Although multiple natural products are potent ligands for the diacylglycerol binding C1 domain of protein kinase C (PKC), RasGRP, and related targets, the high conservation of C1 domains has impeded the development of selective ligands. We characterized here a diacylglycerol-lactone, 130C037, emerging from a combinatorial chemical synthetic strategy, which(More)
Diacylglycerol-lactone (DAG-lactone) libraries generated by a solid-phase approach using IRORI technology produced a variety of unique biological activities. Subtle differences in chemical diversity in two areas of the molecule, the combination of which generates what we have termed "chemical zip codes", are able to transform a relatively small chemical(More)
A series of 2-benzyl and 2-phenyl-3-hydroxypropyl pivalates designed to incorporate the principal pharmacophores of phorbol esters have been synthesized and tested as PKC-alpha ligands. Among the analogues, 13c exhibited the most potent binding affinity with a Ki = 0.7 microM. The synthesized analogues were subjected to molecular modeling analysis based on(More)
A series of DAG-lactones with polar 3-alkylidene substituents have been investigated as PKC-alpha ligands and antitumor agents. Extensive analysis of structure-activity relationships for the 3-alkylidene chain revealed that polar groups such as ether, hydroxyl, aldehyde, ester, acyloxy, and amido were tolerated with similar binding affinities and reduced(More)
