Synthesis and structure-activity relationships of a novel series of pyrimidines as potent inhibitors of TBK1/IKKε kinases
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The design, synthesis and structure-activity relationships of a novel series of 2,4-diamino-5-cyclopropyl pyrimidines is described. Starting from BX795, originally reported to be a potent inhibitor of PDK1, we have developed compounds with improved selectivity and drug-like properties. These compounds have been evaluated in a range of cellular and in vivo assays, enabling us to probe the putative role of the TBK1/IKKe pathway in inflammatory diseases. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
