Substituted aminopyrimidine protein kinase B (PknB) inhibitors show activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Chapman TM, Bouloc N, Buxton RS, Chugh J, Lougheed KE, Osborne SA, Saxty B, Smerdon SJ, Taylor DL, Whalley D - Bioorg. Med. Chem. Lett. (2012)

Bottom Line: Although a significant improvement in enzyme affinity was achieved, the aminoquinazolines showed little or no cellular activity against M. tuberculosis.However, switching to an aminopyrimidine core scaffold and the introduction of a basic amine side chain afforded compounds with nanomolar enzyme binding affinity and micromolar minimum inhibitory concentrations against M. tuberculosis.Replacement of the pyrazole head group with pyridine then allowed equipotent compounds with improved selectivity against a human kinase panel to be obtained.
