Comprehensive Evaluation of CDK Inhibitor Landscape in Cells

Presented by Carrow Wells, Research Associate, Eshelman School of Pharmacy, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Although CDK inhibitors have proven to be therapeutically important, many CDK inhibitors lack family-wide profiling. To address this gap, we evaluated known CDK inhibitors against the full panel of cellular CDK assays. Utilizing the NanoBRET™ assay platform, we identified selective and potent CDK inhibitors, as well as broadly active compounds that can aid in the design of new CDK inhibitors and our ability to match a kinase to a phenotype.
