Abstract

The HGF/c-Met signaling pathway mediates a variety of important biological activities, but dysregulation of the pathway is also closely associated with poor prognosis in a wide range of human cancers. c-Met is considered to be among the most promising therapeutic targets for anticancer drug discovery. Herein we report the discovery of a series of O-linked triazolotriazines that show sub-nanomolar inhibition of c-Met activity. Among these new compounds, 6 a exhibits high c-Met inhibitory potency in both enzymatic and cellular assays with great selectivity.
