Selective modulation of cell function by G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) activation is highly desirable for basic research and therapy but difficult to achieve. We present a novel strategy toward this goal using muscarinic acetylcholine receptors as a model. The five subtypes bind their physiological transmitter in the highly conserved orthosteric site(More)
The generation of novel chemotypes in support of our oncology research projects expanded in recent years from a canonical design of kinase-targeted compound libraries to a broader interpretation of purinome-targeted libraries (PTL) addressing the specificity of cancer relevant targets such as kinases and ATPases. Successful screening of structurally diverse(More)
A novel series of muscarinic receptor ligands of the hexamethonio-type was prepared which contained, on one side, the phthalimidopropane or 1,8-naphthalimido-2,2-dimethylpropane moiety typical for subtype selective allosteric antagonists and, on the other, the acetylenic fragment typical for the nonselective orthosteric muscarinic agonists oxotremorine,(More)
The synthesis and SAR of a series of novel pyrazolo-quinazolines as potent and selective MPS1 inhibitors are reported. We describe the optimization of the initial hit, identified by screening the internal library collection, into an orally available, potent and selective MPS1 inhibitor.
