Protein kinases catalyze the phosphorylation of serine, threonine, tyrosine and histidine residues in proteins. Aberrant regulation of kinase activity has been implicated in many diseases including cancer. Thus development of new strategies for kinase inhibitor design remains an active area of research with direct relevance to drug development. Abelson (Abl) tyrosine kinase is one of the Src-family of tyrosine kinases and is directly implicated in Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML). In this article, we have, for the first time, developed an efficient method for the construction of small molecule-based bisubstrate inhibitors of Abl kinase using click chemistry. Subsequent biochemical screenings revealed a set of moderately potent inhibitors, a few of which have comparable potency to Imatinib (an FDA-approved drug for treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia) against Abl.
