You Need a Job

Posted by kinasepro on September 26, 2008

And KP wants to help.

Tell you what.  Upload your job talk somewhere, or better yet convert it to a shareable G-Doc, and KinasePro will get you exposure by linking to it.  If you want more details on how this can work – email me.

It’s going ph1, it’s from WO/2005/066163, and it’s been described.


Somebody send it to AmbitXL-844PF-477736, IC-83 are the known competition.

R & D @ B I

Posted by kinasepro on September 13, 2008

With BIRB-796 a distant memory, BIBW-2992 in ph3 and given the new name Tovok, BIBF-1120 headed into ph3 and given the name Vargatef,  BI-2536 in multiple Ph2s, a new Ph1 Aurora inhibitor, and another backup PLK1 inhibitor undisclosed, but likely in-clinic or clinic-bound – what could possibly be next?

I can haz pyrimidines

PDK mod prolly from Berlex

Eck’s Got FAK

Posted by kinasepro on September 9, 2008


Neat helix, & 2JKK is NVP TAE-226 but 2JKM (non-helix) is the closest thing to anything FAK in the clinic: PF-562271

Jnk Science

Posted by kinasepro on September 9, 2008

Roche Palo Alto just published 3E7O: JNK2 (7x mutant) bound to an indazole:

Which brings up that nearly two years ago I suggested CC-401 may be from an ’06 Celgene application.  Right flavor wrong compound, the drawn compound is CG-930 (IND filed Dec 18, 2007 – claimed in Ph1 for fibrotic diseases).  As NCI suggests CC-401 is an SP-600125 analog which incidentally is no longer on the CG pipeline.   C12=C(C=C(C=C2)C3=NN=CN3)C(C4=CC(OCCN5CCCCC5)=CC=C4)=NN1

That’s life on the edge for yah.

Who cares about the Roche p38 inhibitors?

Posted by kinasepro on September 5, 2008

Probably a few less people in PA then a few months ago, eh?  But this one’s been getting press recently:
