- PubMed Abstract:
The lymphocyte-specific kinase Lck is a member of the Src family of non-receptor tyrosine kinases. Lck catalyzes the initial phosphorylation of T-cell receptor components that is necessary for signal transduction and T-cell activation. On the basis of both biochemical and genetic studies, Lck is considered an attractive cell-specific target for the design of novel T-cell immunosuppressants. To date, the lack of detailed structural information on the mode of inhibitor binding to Lck has limited the discovery of novel Lck inhibitors.
