Abstract

Dual-specificity tyrosine phosphorylation-regulated kinases (DYRKs) hyperactivity has been linked to the development of a number of human malignancies. DYRK1A is the most studied family member, and the discovery of novel specific inhibitors is attracting considerable interest. The 8-cyclopropyl-2(pyridin-3-yl)thiazolo[5,4-f ]quinazolin-9(8H)-one (also called FC162) was found to be a promising inhibitor of DYRK1A and was characterized in biological experiments, by western transfer and flow cytometry on SH-SY5Y and pre-B cells. Here, the results obtained with FC162 are compared to well-characterized known DYRK1A inhibitors (e.g., Leucettine L41 and EHT1610).
