Example text

A particular feature of this protein–protein interaction is the docking of a hydrophobic alpha-helix in the BH3 domain into a corresponding deep hydrophobic groove in the BCL-2 proteins. Such helix-docked protein–protein interaction sites are now recognized as a general motif, potentially tractable with small molecules due to the relatively enclosed and rigid nature of the binding site [215]. NMR-based biophysical screening identified fragments that bound weakly to two separate sites in the hydrophobic groove of BCL-XL [216].

This started with a very broad approach to finding inhibitors of the kinase target class. A library of 20,000 fragments (MW 150–350 Da) was screened at high concentration (200 µM) against multiple kinases to identify a set of 238 compounds, including 7-azaindole, with measurable activity against at least three kinases and crystallographic evidence of binding in the ATP site [206]. Simple elaboration of the 7-azaindole scaffold generated the monosubstituted 3-anilino-7-azaindole, which had a welldefined crystallographic binding mode in the kinase Pim-1 (Pim1 IC50 ∼ 100 µM).

Html). Extensive screening of drug and compound sensitivity, together with the cataloging of multiple genetic and molecular features, has generated a large, publicly available database that can be used as part of chemical biology and drug discovery investigations. For example, the database can be queried for compounds that act on cell lines with a particular abnormality or for which activity parallels that of a known inhibitor of a drug target. In a related “connectivity map” approach, compounds can be sought that mimic a particular, desired gene expression profile related to a disease or small-molecule perturbation [169].
