Structure-activity relationships have been investigated for inhibition of DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) and ATM kinase by a series of pyran-2-ones, pyran-4-ones, thiopyran-4-ones, and pyridin-4-ones. A wide range of IC50 values were observed for pyranones and thiopyranones substituted at the 6-position, with the 3- and 5-positions proving intolerant to substitution. Related pyran-2-ones, pyran-4-ones, and thiopyran-4-ones showed similar IC50 values against DNA-PK, whereas the pyridin-4-one system proved, in general, ineffective at inhibiting DNA-PK. Extended libraries exploring the 6-position of 2-morpholinopyran-4-ones and 2-morpholino- thiopyrano-4-ones identified the first highly potent and selective ATM inhibitor 2-morpholin-4-yl-6-thianthren-1-yl-pyran-4-one (151C; ATM; IC50 = 13 nM) and revealed constrained SARs for ATM inhibition compared with DNA-PK. One of the most potent DNA-PK inhibitors identified, 2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-6- (morpholin-4-yl)pyran-4-one (16; DNA-PK; IC50 = 220 nM) effectively sensitized HeLa cells to the topoisomerase II inhibitor etoposide in vitro. © 2007 American Chemical Society.
