Synthesis and structure-activity relationship of 4-(1,3-benzothiazol-2-yl)-thiophene-2-sulfonamides as cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (cdk5)/p25 inhibitors.
Summary of "Synthesis and structure-activity relationship of 4-(1,3-benzothiazol-2-yl)-thiophene-2-sulfonamides as cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (cdk5)/p25 inhibitors."
4-(1,3-Benzothiazol-2-yl)thiophene-2-sulfonamide (4a) was found to be a moderately potent inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (cdk5) from a HTS screen. The synthesis and SAR around this hit is described. The X-ray coordinates of ligand 4a with cdk5 are also reported, showing an unusual binding mode to the hinge region via a water molecule.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The relationship between the chemical structure of a compound and its biological or pharmacological activity. Compounds are often classed together because they have structural characteristics in common including shape, size, stereochemical arrangement, and distribution of functional groups.
Quantitative Structure-activity Relationship
A quantitative prediction of the biological, ecotoxicological or pharmaceutical activity of a molecule. It is based upon structure and activity information gathered from a series of similar compounds.
Cyclin-dependent Kinase 2
A key regulator of CELL CYCLE progression. It partners with CYCLIN E to regulate entry into S PHASE and also interacts with CYCLIN A to phosphorylate RETINOBLASTOMA PROTEIN. Its activity is inhibited by CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE INHIBITOR P27 and CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE INHIBITOR P21.
Cdc2 Protein Kinase
Phosphoprotein with protein kinase activity that functions in the G2/M phase transition of the CELL CYCLE. It is the catalytic subunit of the MATURATION-PROMOTING FACTOR and complexes with both CYCLIN A and CYCLIN B in mammalian cells. The maximal activity of cyclin-dependent kinase 1 is achieved when it is fully dephosphorylated.
A group of compounds that contain the structure SO2NH2. Members of this group, also known as sulfa drugs, are derivatives of sulfanilamide, which competitively inhibit folic acid synthesis in microorganisms, and are bacteriostatic. They have been largely supplanted by more effective and less toxic antibiotics. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
We report comprehensive structure-activity relationship studies on a novel series of c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) inhibitors. Intriguingly, the compounds have a dual inhibitory activity by functionin...
In the present study, some amide derivatives were synthesized and their potential anticholinesterase properties were investigated. N-(Benzothiazol-2-yl)-2-[(5-amino/methyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)thio]a...
We investigated a series of sulfonamide boronic acids that resulted from the merging of two unrelated AmpC β-lactamase inhibitor series. The new boronic acids differed in the replacement of the canon...
Take the shortcut: The synthesis of core-modified meso aryl hexaphyrins with an internal thiophene bridge is reported. Introduction of the thiophene bridge alters the electronic structure as well as t...
New synthetic pathways for novel C(3)-symmetric molecules featured with a thiophene-fused six-five-five carbon-bridged coplanar core structure have been established. The incorporation of thiophene as...
This research study is a Phase I/II clinical trial. It is done to determine the best doses that the investigational drug (P276-00) can be used safely. "Investigational" means that the dru...
Although the cause(s) of clinical drug resistance in non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) are unknown, in vitro studies suggest that abnormalities of the cell cycle and mechanisms of apoptosis ma...
