RSS.  Quit clicking your bookmarks and go get an RSS aggregator.  Don’t ask me how or why you just go figure it out. If C-Lo can check 600 blogs every damn day (thanks for the j/k tip), you could easily hit 50 journals.  No I’m not kidding, if your relying on lifting stacks of paper bound by glue for inspiration then your only using 10% of your brain!  Oh and Elsevier subscription only RSS sux.  Plz fix ktx.

The journals I pretend to read are sindicated in the sidebar,  here, and of course there’s a feed .

Smiles. Today smiles are here to copy and paste structures from the web, period. So Sorry.  If your not using firefox, umm start using firefox.  Yes even at work – there’s a portable app.  If you’re already on FF then you can right click an image -> click properties -> alt text: copy the smiles and paste into chemdraw, isis, etc.

Searching. I search the USPTO here (leave off the US in the number its updated ~6am est Thursday), and the WIPO here (updated thursdays when they get around to it), the PDB here (updated Tuesday, usually around 4pm est [advanced search->Ligand->smiles 4tw]) the US clinic here, and EU clinic here.

Novartis ‘n’ PKC

Posted by kinasepro on June 25, 2007

PKC412 (Midostaurin)?

So staurosporine analogs are old news? Novartis has a 1 compound PKC application.

So, what’s Abbott doing making solid forms of Lestaurtinib?

WO/2007/070444, US20070135628, US20070135401

Oh, and CC pointed out that CEP-701 / lestaurtinib is claimed to be in Ph3 trials for AML, so add that one to the list, I guess. I can’t find the trial in the US or EU databases, so may be in Asia?

Kinex filed an IND today for this ‘ere compound:


KX-01, KX2-391, ALB-30350, wait, ALB-30350? yah…

from WO/2006/071960:

Note that KX2-391 has weak activity against isolated kinases because the peptide binding site is not well formed outside of cells (a close analog, KX2-394 is a little more potent against isolated Src [KP note: 394 is the piperazine]), but have very potent activity inside whole cells. Without wishing to be bound by theory, it is thought that the difference in activity is attributed to the fact that the peptide binding site is now fully formed in cells due to the allosteric effects of the binding protein partners in the multi-protein signaling complexes, relative to isolated kinase assays.

I don’t know’s on third

Posted by kinasepro on June 19, 2007

Because? oh he’s centerfield…

So TM asked for it, and while most of these are scatterred about the site… It’s not such a bad idea to have all the not-yet-approved kinase inhibitors currently active in US phase three clinical trials here in one place:

In a maybe-not-so-chronoligical order: Arxxant, Enzastaurin, Recentin, Zactima, Axitinib, Motesanib, CP-690,550, Pazopanib, and Tasigna.

Missing any?
