Discovery of (7-aryl-1,5-naphthyridin-2-yl)ureas as dual inhibitors of ERK2 and Aurora B kinases with antiproliferative activity against cancer cells.


A novel series of (7-aryl-1,5-naphthyridin-2-yl)ureas was discovered as dual ERK2 and Aurora B kinases inhibitors. Several analogues were active at micromolar and submicromolar range against ERK2 and Aurora B, associated with very promising antiproliferative activity toward various cancer cell lines. Synthesis, structure activity relationship and docking… (More)
