Summary of "Structure-based modification of carbonyl-diphenylpyrimidines (Car-DPPYs) as a novel focal adhesion kinase (FAK) inhibitor against various stubborn cancer cells."

A family of carbonyl-substituted diphenylpyrimidine derivatives (Car-DPPYs) with strong activity against focal adhesion kinase (FAK), were described in this manuscript. Among them, compounds 7a (IC = 5.17 nM) and 7f (IC = 2.58 nM) displayed equal anti-FAK enzymatic activity to the lead compound TAE226 (6.79 nM). In particular, compound 7a also exhibited strong antiproliferative activity against several stubborn cancer cells, including AsPC-1 cells (IC = 0.105 μM), BxPC-3 cells (IC = 0.090 μM), and MCF-7/ADR cells (IC = 0.59 μM). Additionally, compound 7a also showed great antitumor efficacy in vivo via aAsPC-1 cancer Xenograft mouse model. The preliminary mechanism study by Western blot analysis revealed that 7a repressed FAK phosphorylation in AsPC cancer cells. Taken together, the results indicate that compound 7a may serve as a promising preclinical candidate for treatment of stubborn cancers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A secondary structure of proteins that is a right-handed helix or coil, where each amino (N-H) group of the peptide backbone contributes a hydrogen bond to the carbonyl(C=O) group of the amino acid four residues N-terminal to it (n-4). It is the most common type of secondary structure.

The appearance of carbonyl groups (such as aldehyde or ketone groups) in PROTEINS as the result of several oxidative modification reactions. It is a standard marker for OXIDATIVE STRESS. Carbonylated proteins tend to be more hydrophobic and resistant to proteolysis.
