TargaGen closes…

Posted by kinasepro on July 13, 2007

Closes a 40M series D that is. Kudos Pros. Some of the more recent thiazole apps like US20070161645 appear to my eye to be the Src/Abl backup brigade.


wt Abl 1.5 nM
T315I 18 nM

So you like pictures?

This week’s pdb update was a little light on inhibitors so here’s a shot of K-252a bound to c-Met: 1R0P: PNAS

Other c-met structures: 2G15, 1R1W.

A reader comment got me to take a closer look at the titled JnJ application.¬† I don’t see it making their blog, but given its similarity to a recent a Vertex application of course it’s going to make this one.


1 nM autophos

 regression @ 25 mg / kg ?  Them some lucky mice.

clogp= 1.28 MW=377

Yah, I’d say your compounds are getting jealous right about now.

US20070149533 is a Raf app from Millennium. I see it as a napthalene – amide cousin to the Birb and Nexavar style ureas. Amgen’s been in the area but not right on top.


Good thing too, b/c you know, I was’t really feeling the whole ‘hydrocinnamides’ thing in US20060160803
