Using SBDD, a series of 4-amino-7-azaindoles were discovered as a novel class of Alk5 inhibitors that are potent in both Alk5 enzymatic and cellular assays. Subsequently a ring cyclization strategy was utilized to improve ADME properties leading to the discovery of a series of 1H-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-2(3H)-one drug like Alk5 inhibitors.
A series of potent ALK5 inhibitors were designed using a SBDD approach and subsequently optimized to improve drug likeness. Starting with a 4-substituted quinoline screening hit, SAR was conducted using a ALK5 binding model to understand the binding site and optimize activity. The resulting inhibitors displayed excellent potency but were limited by high in(More)
An efficient and practical synthetic process for an α-carboline-based Aurora B kinase inhibitor was achieved using an integrated Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling strategy. The process features a mild and efficient method for construction of the α-carboline core by employing a Pd-catalyzed sequence of Buchwald-Hartwig amination and intramolecular direct C-H(More)
