Comments:

This is an excellent probe to interrogate Aurora A kinase in vitro and in vivo. It has good selectivity over Aurora B (220-fold) and Aurora C (190-fold). It is known to inhibit only one kinase, TRKA, at less than 100-fold selectivity.

Comments:

This compound is reported to have good potency and selectivity for AurA, including over AurB and C. A wide range of cellular work has been published (see for example Chinn et al., J Cancer Res Clin Oncol, 2014, 140:1137–1149). Cellular potency ranges from ~0.2 to 1 uM. This appears to be an excellent and selective probe for AurA, and I am happy to recommend its use.
