Cyclin-dependent kinase 4 inhibitors as a treatment for cancer. Part 1: identification and optimisation of substituted 4,6-bis anilino pyrimidines.
Bioorg Med Chem Lett. 2003 Sep 15;13(18):2955-60.
Using a high-throughput screening campaign, we identified the 4,6-bis anilino pyrimidines as inhibitors of the cyclin-dependent kinase, CDK4. Herein we describe the further chemical modification and use of X-ray crystallography to develop potent and selective in vitro inhibitors of CDK4.
