JnJ’s got Aurora-A

Posted by kinasepro on May 1, 2007

Neet ideas in wo/2007/047646… I don’t understand the Kyowa Hakko / Janssen / JnJ triangle, but I hope there’s a deal under here somewhere. Else wo/2006/112479 is going to make for some fancy lawyering if you guys are going to keep these…


>> here, have a model based on the Aurora-b PDB 2BFY: >>

    Nice structure, what’s binding mode?

    I updated my guess in above, and I can’t imagine anything else is going on with these… Aurora’s Leucine gatekeeper likely snuggles with the lactam CH2.

    What model you used for docking? DFG out? It might bind in a different orientation.

    not docked, just overlayed… DFG out – hmm.. dropping the phenyl in h1 is what I think your talking about. Could be, but that wouldn’t be my guess. If your interested in the chemotype i recommend looking at the Kyowa app. They have more diversity and look at things like sulphones and such, pretty much right where I might have tried were I working off of something like 2BFY as a pharmacophore template.
