Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A series of aminobenzimidazole-substituted pyrimidines were synthesized and evaluated for biochemical activity against CDK1. A high-speed parallel synthesis approach enabled the identification of a potent lead series having improved potency in the CDK1 assay (IC50 < 10 nM). Cell cycle analysis showed that the compounds induced a G2/M block. Docking studies were carried out with a CDK1 homology model, and provide a rationale for the observed activities.
