As the result of a rhJNK1 HTS, the imidazo[1,2-a]quinoxaline 1 was identified as a 1.6μM rhJNK1 inhibitor. Optimization of this compound lead to AX13587 (rhJNK1 IC 50 =160nM) which was co-crystallized with JNK1 to identify key molecular interactions. Kinase profiling against 125+ kinases revealed AX13587 was an inhibitor of JNK, MAST3, and MAST4 whereas its methylene homolog AX14373 (native...
We previously disclosed tricylic, 6-carboxylic acid-bearing 4-quinolones as GSK-3β inhibitors. Herein we discuss the optimization of this series to yield a series of more potent 6-nitrile analogs with insignificant anti-microbial activity. Finally, kinase profiling indicated that members of this class were highly specific GSK-3 inhibitors.
The synthesis, GSK-3β inhibitory activity, and anti-microbial activity of bicyclic and tricyclic derivatives of the 5,7-diamino-6-fluoro-4-quinolone-3-carboxylic acid scaffold were studied. Kinase selectivity profiling indicated that members of this class were potent and highly selective GSK-3 inhibitors.
Protein kinases are intensely studied mediators of cellular signaling, yet important questions remain regarding their regulation and in vivo properties. Here, we use a probe-based chemoprotemics platform to profile several well studied kinase inhibitors against >200 kinases in native cell proteomes and reveal biological targets for some of these inhibitors. Several striking differences were identified...
