SERP Ratings

In Cell Rating


This compound inhibits the BET family of bromodomain-containing proteins and shouldn't be used as an ERK5 inhibitor.  Substantially all of the reported biological activity for this compound derives from BET inhibition, not from ERK5 inhibition.

This compound should not be used as an ERK5 inhibitor in cellular or in vivo experiments.

This compound is very selective as measured by broad profiling at DiscoverX and in a KiNativ experiment, and it blocks ERK5 in cells at about 1 micromolar. Improving the cellular activity would be a good next step.

XMD8-92 is a potent and selective inhibitor of BMK1 with a KD of 80 nM. Its selectivity was determined by evaluation against a panel of 402 kinases. It has a KD of 190, 890, and 600 nM against DCAMKL2, TNK1, and PLK4, respectively. It inhibits growth factor-induced activation of BMK1 at 1 uM in HeLa cells. PK studies showed it to be orally bioavailable and having a half life of 2 hours by IV dosing. XMD8-92 was shown to be active in xenograft models with 50 mg/kg, twice daily IP dosing.

Portal Comments

The probe was re-scored by the SERP member, taking into consideration, the BET off-target effects.
