4-Thiophenoxy-N-(3,4,5-Trialkoxyphenyl)Pyrimidine-2-Amines as Potent and Selective Inhibitors of the T-Cell Tyrosine Kinase p56lck
We have developed a series of 4-thiophenoxy-N-(3,4,5-trialkoxyphenyl) pyrimidine-2-amines as potent and selective inhibitors of p56lck tyrosine kinase activity. In particular, the most potent inhibitor shows cellular activity in T-cell receptor (TCR) stimulated models of cytokine release, which suggests an immunomodulatory role for this class of inhibitor.
