PDB Update

Posted by kinasepro on March 27, 2007

2GHG Abbott – Chk1 with A431994 (Akt inhibitor) BMCL ’06, 3424


I haven’t read the article yet, but to my eye the PDB suggests a ligand conformation responsible for some off target activity. Abbott’s indole-aminoethoxides in last weeks update (2OH0, 2OJF) seem to be the more typical (potent?) conformation.

Schering’s latest CDK stuff

Posted by kinasepro on March 27, 2007

Schering-Plough has a series of CDK inhibitors of which the latest installment is: US20070066621. Earlier app’s in this series appear as a combined effort via SP and PCOP, and Pharmacopeia has a press release suggesting that the collaboration has an oncology candidate in Ph1. Hrmph, No ph1 oncology trials via ScheringP in the US and the press on this stuff is a little thin.


Vernalis described related series’ in Bioorg Med Chem Lett ’05, 863; 1Y8Y 1Y91 and Bioorg Med Chem Lett ’06, 1353; 2C68, 2C69, 2C6T, 2C6O, 2C6M, 2C6L, 2C6K, 2C6I

PDB Update

Posted by kinasepro on March 20, 2007

Lots ‘o’ structures released this week.

2P2H Vegfr2 Amgen (J Med Chem)
2P2I Vegfr2

2OSC Tie2
2OO8 Tie2
2P4I Tie2

2GDO Chk1


2OIB IRAK4 Roche (J. Immunology)
2OIC IRAK4 Roche
2OID IRAK4 Roche

2OIQ SRC w/ Gleevec

2OH0 PKA Abbott (BMC)
2OJF PKA Abbott (related)

and 2UV2 is an update to 2JAO where I guess they forgot an atom in the ligand (benzonitrile 2JAO vs. benzylnitrile 2UV2)
