The structure of JNK3 in complex with small molecule inhibitors: structural basis for potency and selectivity.
G.Scapin, S.B.Patel, J.Lisnock, J.W.Becker, P.V.LoGrasso.
The c-Jun terminal kinases (JNKs) are members of the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase family and regulate signal transduction in response to environmental stress. Activation of JNK3, a neuronal-specific isoform, has been associated with neurological damage, and as such, JNK3 may represent an attractive target for the treatment of neurological disorders. The MAP kinases share between 50% and 80% sequence identity. In order to obtain efficacious and safe compounds, it is necessary to address the issues of potency and selectivity. We report here four crystal structures of JNK3 in complex with three different classes of inhibitors. These structures provide a clear picture of the interactions that each class of compound made with the kinase. Knowledge of the atomic interactions involved in these diverse binding modes provides a platform for structure-guided modification of these compounds, or the de novo design of novel inhibitors that could satisfy the need for potency and selectivity.

Figure 1.
Figure 1. Schematic Representation of the ATP Binding Site in KinasesATP (in ball-and-sticks) interacts mainly with the linker/adenine binding region (1), the ribose binding region (2), and the phosphate binding region (3). The two hydrophobic regions I (4) and II (5) do not directly interact with ATP and contain residues that vary among kinases, thus providing possibilities for the development of selective inhibitors [17]. Figures 1, 2B, and 3–6 were made with RIBBONS [42].

The conformational change observed for residues Ile70–Ile77 was ligand induced.(B) Close-up of the compound 3 binding site; hydrogen bond interactions with protein atoms are shown as blue dotted lines.

The most recent references are shown first. Citation data come partly from CiteXplore and partly from an automated harvesting procedure. Note that this is likely to be only a partial list as not all journals are covered by either method. However, we are continually building up the citation data so more and more references will be included with time. Where a reference describes a PDB structure, the PDB code is shown on the right.
