Some have walked a country mile to get away from the hydroxamate, others think nothing of tacking ‘nother one on:  Its Chugai’s ‘ATP-Collaborative’  Ph1 MEK inhibitor: Ro-4987655 / CH-4987655.  More potent, stable, and soluble…


Reduced signs of hydrolysis to the inactive acid and no BBB penetration.(preclinically)

Roche’s JNK

Posted by kinasepro on April 11, 2009

An awful lot like Takeda’s JNK


Roche: WO/2008/138920; WO/2009/015917
Takeda:  BMCL; WO/2003/068750; WO/2002/062764

I  detect some similarity to SP-600125 within this class, but a cross screen of the older DPPIV inhibitors seem like a more likely origin.

3FQS is Roche dropping the dime on R-406

currently in Ph2 as R-788


\ : still no BMCL, eh Rigel? : /

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:

Roche ‘n Raf

Posted by kinasepro on March 19, 2007

US20070060607 is ‘nother thienopyridine application from Roche. The listed in vitro assay uses c-Raf, but selectivity isn’t described.

Roche’s got a Vegf/FGF app in WO/2007/019884


They’ve been around since ’05 though
