- Proviral Integration site of Moloney (Pim) murine Leukemia virus kinases is a serine/threonine specific protein kinase. It is largely involved in cell survival and proliferation. Pim-1 phosphorylates multiple cellular substrates to inhibit apoptosis and promote cell cycle progression. Over expression of Pim-1 kinase is observed in a range of malignancies and various solid cancers. High level of Pim-1 expression is seen in myeloma, acute myeloid leukemia, prostate cancer and liver carcinomas. Hence, Pim-1 is considered as an interesting cancer target. In the present study, we have performed region-focused CoMFA study on a series of imidazopyridazine derivatives as Pim-1 kinase inhibitors. A statistically acceptable region-focused CoMFA model ($q^2=0.571$ 수식 이미지; ONC=3; $r^2=0.909$ 수식 이미지) was developed. The model was then validated using Bootsrapping and progressive sampling. The contour map highlighted the regions favorable to increase the activity. Bulky substitutions in $R^2$ 수식 이미지 position of the phenyl ring could increase the activity. Similarly, small negative substitution in the $R^1$ 수식 이미지 position of the Pyridine ring could increase the activity considerably. Our results will be useful to design novel Pim-1 kinase inhibitors of this series.
