I thought this was pretty well known, but looking at some recent literature along with Ashutosh, I guess its worth highlighting. The short of it is that if you need it in plane maybe you aughta see what it looks like with a sulfur atom.

Dasatinib is one such example where the carbonyl is in plane with a heteroaromatic Sulfur atom, but there are plenty of more where that came from…

Supergen initiates dosing of flt3 inhibitor MP-470: ph1 ‘advanced-stage solid tumors.’

Entremed initiates trial for Aurora inihbitor MKC-1: Ph1 Leukemia

Kinex gets the FDA go-ahead for Src inhibitor KX2-391: lymphoma or solid tumors (though despite the press release, it’s not the first non-atp competitive kinase inhibitor to enter the clinic. The MEK inhibitors were)

2PZI: AX-20017 in PknG, Biozentrum (University of Basel) & PSI; PNAS


IC50 of ~0,5μM

AX-20017 was a hit, and optimized in: WO/2005/023818 by Axxima now owned by GPC. Some off-target activity on Aurora is described in the series, and here’s some related Flt3 inhibitors: BMCL

Oximes from J&J

Posted by kinasepro on July 22, 2007

So J&J has a BMCL describing the amino-pyrimidine-oxime moiety as quinazoline isostere, and a there’s a handful of other applications describing the motif.   Here’s a Lapatinib-esque example where they describe the EGF activity: WO/2007/081630

Pfizer’s Jak3 inhibitor CP-690,550 was described earlier listed as Ph ii-iii. For some reason that was changed, and all of its furthest advanced trials are Phase 2.
