Abstract in another language

Tankyrases (TNKSs) have recently gained great consideration as potential targets in Wnt/β-catenin pathway-dependent solid tumors. Previously, we reported the 2-mercaptoquinazolin-4-one MC2050 as a micromolar PARP1 inhibitor. Here we show how the resolution of the X-ray structure of PARP1 in complex with MC2050, combined with the computational investigation of the structural differences between TNKSs and PARP1/2 active sites, provided the rationale for a structure-based drug design campaign that with a limited synthetic effort led to the discovery of the bis-quinazolinone 5 as a picomolar and selective TNKS2 inhibitor, endowed with antiproliferative effects in a colorectal cancer cell line (DLD-1) where the Wnt pathway is constitutively activated.
