Abstract: ATAD2 is a bromodomain-containing protein whose overexpression is linked to poor outcomes in a number of different cancer types. To date, no potent and selective inhibitors of the bromodomain have been reported. This article describes the structure-based optimization of a series of naphthyridones from micromolar leads with no selectivity over the BET bromodomains to inhibitors with sub-100 nM ATAD2 potency and 100-fold BET selectivity.
