Discovery of Leucyladenylate Sulfamates as Novel Leucyl-tRNA Synthetase (LRS)-Targeted Mammalian Target of Rapamycin Complex 1 (mTORC1) Inhibitors.

Recent studies indicate that LRS may act as a leucine sensor for the mTORC1 pathway, potentially providing an alternative strategy to overcome rapamycin resistance in cancer treatments. In this study, we developed leucyladenylate sulfamate derivatives as LRS-targeted mTORC1 inhibitors. Compound 18 selectively inhibited LRS-mediated mTORC1 activation and… CONTINUE READING
