- PubMed Abstract:
We have recently reported about a new class of Aurora-A inhibitors based on a bicyclic tetrahydropyrrolo[3,4-c]pyrazole scaffold. Here we describe the synthesis and early expansion of CDK2/cyclin A-E inhibitors belonging to the same chemical class. Synthesis of the compounds was accomplished using a solution-phase protocol amenable to rapid parallel expansion. Compounds with nanomolar activity in the biochemical assay and able to efficiently inhibit CDK2-mediated tumor cell proliferation have been obtained.
