Comments:

Limited selectivity data (AAA ATPase, HSP90 and 53 kinases) and no wide ligand profiling data. The high lipophilicity of the compound is a concern regarding off-target selectivity. No data regarding in-cell occupancy of VCP and its relation to the biomarkers or antiproliferation phenotype that might describe the shift in potency from 30 nM in vitro.

Comments:

In vitro selectivity data within the target family (all AAA ATPases) and limited selectivity outside the target family (HSP90 and 53 kinases) are presented. However, an in-cell target engagement study using NMS-873 is lacking. Recent publications call for caution regarding potential polypharmacology and off-target effects of this compound: broad antiviral activity against influenza A and B viruses (Zhang et al) and dual inhibition of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (Bouwer et al) have been reported. Zhang et al. Eur J Pharm Sci 2019, 133, 86–94(https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejps.2019.03.020). Bouwer et al. Biochimie 2021, 185, 33–42. (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biochi.2021.03.004).
