The design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of N-(2-aminophenyl)-4-[(4-pyridin-3-ylpyrimidin-2-ylamino)methyl]benzamide 8 (MGCD0103) is described. Compound 8 is an isotype-selective small molecule histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor that selectively inhibits HDACs 1-3 and 11 at submicromolar concentrations in vitro. 8 blocks cancer cell proliferation(More)
New heteroarylcarboxamide head groups substituted with two aromatic rings analogs of thieno[3,2-b]pyridine-based kinase inhibitor LCRF-0004 were designed and synthesized. Potent inhibitors of RON tyrosine kinase with various level of selectivity for c-Met RTK were obtained.
New fused bicyclic lactam head groups as rigidified analogs of thieno[3,2-b]pyridine-based kinase inhibitor LCRF-0004 were designed and synthesized. Depending on the functionalities and the size of these bicyclic head groups, potent inhibitors of RON tyrosine kinase with various level of selectivity against c-Met tyrosine kinase were obtained.
Analogues of the clinical compound MGCD0103 (A) were designed and synthesized. These compounds inhibit recombinant human HDAC1 with IC(50) values in the sub-micromolar range. In human cancer cells growing in culture these compounds induce hyperacetylation of histones, cause expression of the tumor suppressor protein p21(WAF1/CIP1), and inhibit cellular(More)
The synthesis and biological evaluation of a variety of 4-(heteroarylaminomethyl)-N-(2-aminophenyl)-benzamides and their analogs is described. Some of these compounds were shown to inhibit HDAC1 with IC(50) values below the micromolar range, induce hyperacetylation of histones, upregulate expression of the tumor suppressor p21(WAF1/Cip1), and inhibit(More)
A series of N-(3-fluoro-4-(2-arylthieno[3,2-b]pyridin-7-yloxy)phenyl)-2-oxo-3-phenylimidazolidine-1-carboxamides targeting c-Met and VEGFR2 tyrosine kinases was designed and synthesized. The compounds were potent against these two enzymes with IC(50) values in the low nanomolar range in vitro, possessed favorable pharmacokinetic profiles and showed high(More)
A variety of N-(2-amino-phenyl)-4-(heteroarylmethyl)-benzamides were designed and synthesized. These compounds were shown to inhibit recombinant human HDAC1 with IC(50) values in the sub-micromolar range. In human cancer cells growing in culture these compounds induced hyperacetylation of histones, induced the expression of the tumor suppressor protein(More)
Inhibition of histone deacetylases (HDACs) is emerging as a new strategy in human cancer therapy. Novel 2-aminophenyl benzamides and acrylamides, that can inhibit human HDAC enzymes and induce hyperacetylation of histones in human cancer cells, have been designed and synthesized. These compounds selectively inhibit proliferation and cause cell cycle arrest(More)
A series of N-(4-(6,7-disubstituted-quinolin-4-yloxy)-3-fluorophenyl)-2-oxo-3-phenylimidazolidine-1-carboxamides targeting c-Met and VEGFR2 tyrosine kinases was designed and synthesized. The compounds were potent against these two enzymes with IC(50) values in the low nanomolar range in vitro, possessed favorable pharmacokinetic profiles and showed high(More)
