Astex has released data about their AKT program, including a PDB, but I have omitted that they appear to have dropped the strutcture of their candidate in WO/2008/110846


Thanks, Ed.

Merck‘s Ph1 allosteric AKT inhibitor:

NC1(CCC1)C(C=C2)=CC=C2C3=NC4=C(C=C3C5=CC=CC=C5)C(N6C=C4)=NNC6=OBinds to the Pleckstrin homology domain
Akt1 8 nM
Akt2 12 nM
Akt3 65 nM

thanks Ghost and Redferret for the structure

PDB Update

Posted by kinasepro on June 5, 2007

Some kind of coincidence that this week’s update are all indazoles? Hmm…

2UZT Abbott; AKT;
2UZU A-443654

The real action with these is what’s going on with the indole though.

Vioquest recently gave an update on their ph i/iia study with this here nucleotide. Nearly as old as ATP itself, the compound was made new again by a diagnostic screen for cancers overexpressing AKT.


Also goes by: API-2, NSC-154020, TCN-P, and triciribine phosphate. and yeh, somebody got the structure wrong in Cancer Res. 04, 4394

(KSR v. Teleflex? suck it.)

Helluva week for Genentech

1) Partners up XL518

2) Makes Fortune’s #2

3) Boasts at JP Morgan: ‘We’ve got too much money’

4) Loses a Supreme Court decision vs. Medimmune

5) Submits year end 8k

6) Buys Amphora’s “unnamed” (AKT) program.

…Genentech will purchase Amphora’s entire program for an unnamed oncology target with the potential to treat multiple oncology indications. Other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Not partner mind you: purchase. Amphora’s most recent AKT application is WO/2006/020767. Chiron appears to have the closest AKT examples in WO/2005/095386 included for the helluvit.


>> UPDATE 5/1/07 >> Genentech is now listed as an applicant the Amphora application: WO/2006/020767. Other Amphora ‘ATP-Utilizing Enzyme Inhibitors: ‘WO/2005/033102 & WO/2005/097758 (same inventors)
