Potent fragments! A 2-phenylquinazolinone fragment was initially identified by computational study, which after a first optimization evolved into a series of compounds capable of inhibiting cyclin-dependent kinase 9 (CDK9) activity at micromolar concentrations. The anti-kinase activity translated well into the ability to inhibit Tat-mediated transcription and HIV-1 infectivity in latently infected cells.
