And then theres those 3 applications on CK2 from Exelixis WO/2007/048064, WO/2007/048065, & WO/2007/048066… The latter two with and / or Pim1 & 2 inhibition.


Seems plausible that CK2 could be one of the ‘undisclosed’ targets of the BMS collaboration.

Takeda w/ more-a Aurora

Posted by kinasepro on April 23, 2007

Takeda has been looking at compounds similar to vx-680 for a while now, and the same group now has WO/2007/044779. The pretty colors give an idea whats going on, but frankly we all suck at drawing squishy things… for now your stuck with pymol!


2BFY shows a sulfonamide down thereabout in Aurora-B.

My guess is XL-518 is in WO/2007/044515.


362 examples, 15 inventors.

IND beating first app is unusual. kudos.

Kinase PDBs

Posted by kinasepro on April 19, 2007

Here’s an interestingly derived big list of kinase structures in the PDB. I guess the answer is 112.

PX-866 is a Wortmannin analog that came to Biomira as part of the Prolx deal.


You synthetic junkies should recognize at least one of the names on the patent app. Appears to be a simple improvement to the michael acceptor.

1E7U shows the natural product covalently bound to Pi3k
