Plasmodium falciparum PI(4)K inhibitor

NOT Open Access | Discovery of 6'-chloro-N-methyl-5'-(phenylsulfonamido)-[3,3'-bipyridine]-5-carboxamide (CHMFL-PI4K-127) as a novel Plasmodium falciparum PI(4)K inhibitor with potent antimalarial activity against both blood and liver stages of Plasmodium

Starting from a bipyridine-sulfonamide scaffold, medicinal chemistry optimization leads to the discovery of a novel Plasmodium falciparum PI4K kinase (PfPI4K) inhibitor compound 15g (CHMFL-PI4K-127, IC50: 0.9 nM), which exhibits potent activity against 3D7 Plasmodium falciparum (P. falciparum) (EC50: 25.1 nM). CHMFL-PI4K-127 displays high selectivity against PfPI4K over human lipid and protein kinase.
