A novel series of inhibitors of cancer cell proliferation, selective against p21 cell cycle checkpoint-disrupted cells vs. cells with intact p21 checkpoint, were identified by high-throughput screening. Optimization of both ends of the lead molecule to improve potency, using parallel synthesis and iterative design, is described. The… (More)
We previously reported that several 7-alkoxy-4-phenylamino-3-quinolinecarbonitriles were potent inhibitors of Src kinase activity. We disclose here a new highly efficient and versatile route to these compounds, which are also potent inhibitors of Abl kinase.
A series of substituted benzo[c][2,7]-naphthyridines were prepared and showed good potency in inhibiting PDK-1. The synthesis and SAR of this series of compounds are presented as well as the X-ray crystal structure of one of these analogs in a complex with PDK-1.
Checkpoint deficiency of malignant cells can be exploited in cancer drug discovery. Compounds that selectively kill checkpoint-deficient cells versus checkpoint-proficient cells can be utilized to preferentially target tumor cells, while sparing normal cells. The protein p21(Wafl/Cipl/Sdi1) (hereafter referred to as p21) inhibits progression of the cell… (More)
On the basis of a screening lead from an assay using a pair of p21 isogenic cell lines (p21-proficient cells and p21-deficient cells) to identify chemoselective agents, a series of novel thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidin-4(1H)-one-based analogs was prepared. Some analogs inhibited the growth of human colon tumor cells.
A novel series of antiproliferative agents containing pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidin-7-yl phenyl amides, selective for p21-deficient cells, were identified by high-throughput screening. Exploration of the SAR relationships in the headpiece, core, and tailpiece is described. Strict steric, positional, and electronic requirements were observed, with a clear… (More)
It has been previously reported that appropriately substituted 4-anilinoquinoline-3-carbonitriles are potent inhibitors of Src kinase, with biological activity in vitro and in vivo. Structural modifications to these compounds have been explored, providing the 4-anilinobenzo[g]quinoline-3-carbonitriles as a series with enhanced Src inhibitory properties. The… (More)
Several 7-alkoxy-4-anilino-3-quinolinecarbonitriles were synthesized and evaluated for Src kinase inhibitory activity. Optimal inhibition of both Src enzymatic and cellular activity was seen with analogues having a 2,4-dichloro-5-methoxyaniline group at C-4. Compound 18, which has a 1-methylpiperidinemethoxy group at C-7, showed in vivo activity in a… (More)
New 4-phenylamino-3-quinolinecarbonitriles with a 7-ethynyl group substituted by a pyridine, phenyl or thiophene ring containing basic water solubilizing groups were prepared and evaluated as Src kinase inhibitors. Of these new analogs, potent activity was observed with compounds having a (2,4-dichloro-5-methoxyphenyl)amino group at C-4, a methoxy or ethoxy… (More)
Src-null mice have higher bone mass because of decreased bone resorption and increased bone formation, whereas Abl-null mice are osteopenic, because of decreased bone formation. Compound I, a potent inhibitor of Src in an isolated enzyme assay (IC(50) 0.55 nM) and a Src-dependent cell growth assay, with lower activity on equivalent Abl-based assays,… (More)
