Description: AZD1208 is orally available, small molecule inhibitor of PIM kinases with potential antineoplastic activity. Pan-PIM kinase inhibitor AZD1208 inhibits the activities of PIM1, PIM2 and PIM3 serine/threonine kinases, which may result in the interruption of the G1/S phase cell cycle transition, thereby causing cell cycle arrest and inducing apoptosis in cells that overexpress PIMs. The growth inhibition of several leukemia cell lines by this agent is correlated with the expression levels of PIM1, which is the substrate of STAT transcription factors. PIM kinases are downstream effectors of many cytokine and growth factor signaling pathways and are upregulated in various malignancies.

Additional Information

AZD1208 is a potent ATP-competitive inhibitor of all three Pim kinase isoforms. The inhibitory constant (Ki) values were determined to be 0.1 nM for Pim-1, 1.92 nM for Pim-2, and 0.4 nM for Pim-3. In enzymatic assays carried out at Km ATP concentrations, AZD1208 inhibited kinase activity with an IC50 of 0.4 nM for Pim-1, 5.0 nM for Pim-2 and 1.9 nM for Pim-3. In enzyme assays using 5 mM ATP, the high end of physiological ATP concentration in human cells, the IC50 values were 2.6 nM for Pim-1, 164 nM for Pim-2, and 17 nM for Pim-3. ( Blood. 2013 Dec 20.
