WZ811 is an Orally Active CXCR4 Antagonist

The C-X-C chemokine receptor-4 (CXCR4) is a seven-transmembrane G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR). It is a member of the family I GPCR or rhodopsin-like GPCR family. The chemokine stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1 or CXCL12) is a CXC chemokine peptide. Meanwhile, it is the natural ligand for CXCR4. Importantly, the CXCR4...

NXT629 is a Selective and Competitive PPARα Antagonist

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) are ligand-activated transcription factors that belong to the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily. Of these, PPARα mainly expresses in the liver, where it activates fatty acid catabolism. PPARδ expresses ubiquitously and implicates in fatty acid oxidation and keratinocyte differentiation. PPARγ2 expresses exclusively in adipose tissue and...

TAK-659 is a Dual SYK and FLT-3 Kinase Inhibitor for Leukemia Treatment

Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) is a disease driven by SYK and/or FLT3-mediated signaling. In particular, spleen tyrosine kinase (SYK) is a 72 kD non-receptor cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase. SYK is a key mediator for a variety of inflammatory cells and immunology signaling pathways, including B cell receptor in B cells,...

MT-802 is a PROTAC Degrader of BTK for C481S Mutant CLL Treatment

The irreversible inhibitor Ibrutinib for Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) has emerged as a transformative treatment option for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and other B-cell malignancies. However, more than 80% of CLL patients develop resistance due to the mutant site in cysteine to serine covalently bound by Ibrutinib...
