Synthesis, activity evaluation, and docking analysis of barbituric acid aryl hydrazone derivatives as RSK2 inhibitors.

The 90 kDa ribosomal S6 kinases (RSKs), especially RSK2, have attracted attention for the development of new anticancer agents. Through structural optimization of the hit compound 1 from our previous study, a series of barbituric acid aryl hydrazone analogues were designed and synthesized as potential RSK2 inhibitors. The most potent one, compound 9, showed… CONTINUE READING
