  • PubMed Abstract: 

    The two major Aurora kinases carry out critical functions at distinct mitotic stages. Selective inhibitors of these kinases, as well as pan-Aurora inhibitors, show antitumor efficacy and are now under clinical investigation. However, the ATP-binding sites of Aurora A and Aurora B are virtually identical, and the structural basis for selective inhibition has therefore not been clear. We report here a class of bisanilinopyrimidine Aurora A inhibitors with excellent selectivity for Aurora A over Aurora B, both in enzymatic assays and in cellular phenotypic assays. Crystal structures of two of the inhibitors in complex with Aurora A implicate a single amino acid difference in Aurora B as responsible for poor inhibitory activity against this enzyme. Mutation of this residue in Aurora B (E161T) or Aurora A (T217E) is sufficient to swap the inhibition profile, suggesting that this difference might be exploited more generally to achieve high selectivity for Aurora A.
