Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor: Understanding

Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor: Overview

Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor protein (also known as CKIs, CDIs, or CDKIs) is a protein which inhibits the enzyme cycling-dependent kinase (CDK) and Cyclin activity by stopping the cell cycle if there are unfavorable conditions, therefore, acting as tumor suppressors. Cell cycle progression is stopped by Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor protein at the G1 phase. CKIs are vital proteins within the control system that point out whether the process of DNA synthesis, mitosis, and cytokines control one another. If a malfunction prevents the successful completion of DNA synthesis during the G1 phase, a signal is sent to delay or stop the progression to the S phase. Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor proteins are essential in the regulation of the cell cycle. If cell mutations surpass the cell cycle checkpoints during cell cycle regulation, it can result in various types of cancer.

In the cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) family or CDK, Cyclin, and CKIs, serine/threonine kinases play an integral role in regulating the eukaryotic cell cycle. The structure of CDK2-CyclinA and p27 is determined by crystallography, demonstrating that the inhibitor of p27 stretches at the top of the Cyclin-CDK complex. The amino terminal of p27 has an RXL motif exhibiting a hydrophobic patch of cyclin A. The carboxyl-terminal end of the p27 fragment interacts with the beta sheet of CDKs, causing interference of the structure; p27 slides into the ATP- binding site of CDK2 and inhibits ATP binding.
Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor proteins work by inactivating the CDKs by degradation. The typical inactivation mechanism of the CDK/ Cyclin complex is based on binding a CDK inhibitor to the CDK cyclin complex and a partial conformational rotation of the CDK. The cyclin is thus forced to release the T loop and detach from the CDK. Then, the CDK inhibitor initiates a small Helix into the cleft blocking the cleft and blocking the active site of the CDK. Eventually, it releases the ATP out of the aperture of the CDK and deactivates it. Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor proteins use ATP as a phosphate contributor to phosphorylate serine and threonine residues.

Human cells contain many different cyclins binding to different CDKs. CDKs and cyclins appear and activate at specific cell cycle phases. Seven cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor proteins have been identified. They are p15, p16, p18, p19, p21, p27, and p57. These cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor protein emerges only in their specific cell cycle phase. Each Cyclin/CDK complex are specific to the part of the cell cycle phase. Each CDK and cyclin can be identified based on the location of the cell cycle. CKIs fall within two categories; those that inhibit CDKI, CDK2, and CDK5 and those that inhibit CDK4 and CDK6. These checkpoints' cell cycle blocks at both the G1/S and G2/M checkpoints are consistent with the inhibition profile of the enzymes.
CDK-inhibitors can be used as an anti-cancer drug by blocking CDK’s and therefore halting the uncontrolled cellular proliferation seen in cancer. Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) that promote transition through the cell cycle were expected to be key therapeutic targets because many tumorigenic events ultimately drive proliferation by impinging on CDK4 or CDK6 complexes in the G1 phase of the cell cycle. Moreover, perturbations in chromosomal stability and aspects of S phase and G2/M control mediated by CDK2 and CDK1 are pivotal tumorigenic events. The US FDA approved the first drug of this type, palbociclib (Ibrance), a CDK4/6 inhibitor, in February 2015, for use in postmenopausal women with breast cancer that is estrogen receptor positive and HER2 negative. Several compounds are in clinical trials.

Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor Emerging Drugs

Abemaciclib: Eli Lilly and Company

Abemaciclib selectively inhibits CDK4 and CDK6 with low nanomolar potency. These enzymes are responsible for phosphorylating and thus deactivating the retinoblastoma protein, which plays a role in cell cycle progression from the G1 (first gap) to the S (synthesis) phase. Blocking this pathway prevents cells from progressing to the S phase, thereby inducing apoptosis (cell death). In vitro analysis using cancer cell lines shows that abemaciclib induces non‐apoptotic cell death characterized by the formation of cytoplasmic vacuoles derived from lysosomes. Currently, the drug is in the Phase III stage of its development for the treatment of Liposarcoma and Prostate cancer.

GFH-009: GenFleet Therapeutics

GFH009 is a potent and highly selective small-molecule inhibitor of CDK9 with more than 100 times selectivity over other CDK subtypes. Preclinical data have also suggested the potential anti-tumor effects of GFH009 in combination with BCL-2 inhibitors. As a potent and highly selective small molecule CDK9 inhibitor, GFH009 exhibits strong apoptosis-inducing and anti-proliferative activities in multiple human cell lines and animal models of diseases. It effectively inhibits the growth of tumor in various xenograft models and significantly improves survival of tumor bearing animals. The drug is currently in Phase II stage of Clinical trial evaluation for the treatment Hematological malignancies.

Enitociclib: Vincerx Pharma

Enitociclib is a potent and selective CDK9 inhibitor currently in clinical development. The small molecule inhibitor targets P-TEFb/CDK9 and has shown robust pathway modulation as well as efficacy and safety in several preclinical tumor models and in early phase clinical studies. Enitociclib was identified as a top hit in small molecule inhibitor screening and exposure to Enitociclib for 96 hours against a representative panel of MM cell lines (NCI-H929, MM.1S, OPM-2, and U266B1) demonstrated significant cytotoxic activity, with IC50 values ranging from 36 to 78 nM. Vincerx Pharma is focused on Phase I/II study with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) evaluating combination of Enitociclib and Venetoclax and prednisone (VVIP) in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and peripheral T Cell Lymphoma (PTCL).

SY 5609: Syros Pharmaceuticals

SY-5609 is a highly selective and potent oral inhibitor of the cyclin-dependent kinase 7 (CDK7) in development for select solid tumors. SY-5609 is also being evaluated in combination with atezolizumab, a PD-L1 inhibitor, in BRAF-mutant colorectal cancer in Roche’s Phase 1/1b INTRINSIC trial. SY-5609 represents a novel targeted approach that has potential in a range of difficult-to-treat cancers. Data from a dose-escalation study demonstrated single-agent activity, including prolonged stable disease, tumor shrinkage, and tumor marker decreases, across multiple tumor types. Data evaluating SY-5609 in combination with chemotherapy demonstrated that the combination was well-tolerated with evidence of clinical activity, including a confirmed partial response in a pancreatic cancer patient who was unresponsive to frontline therapy. Syros Pharmaceuticals believes SY-5609 has the potential to provide a profound benefit for patients with cancers that have largely eluded treatment to date, based on these clinical data as well as preclinical data and mechanistic rationale that support the potential of CDK7 inhibition in solid tumors. Syros is seeking a partnership for further development of SY-5609.
