Abstract

Lemur tyrosine kinase 3 (LMTK3) is oncogenic in various cancers. In breast cancer, LMTK3 phosphorylates and modulates the activity of estrogen receptor-α (ERα) and is essential for the growth of ER-positive cells. LMTK3 is highly expressed in ER-negative breast cancer cells, where it promotes invasion via integrin β1. LMTK3 abundance and/or high nuclear expression have been linked to shorter disease free and overall survival time in a variety of cancers, supporting LMTK3 as a potential target for anticancer drug development. We sought to identify small molecule inhibitors of LMTK3 with the ultimate goal to pharmacologically validate this kinase as a novel target in cancer. We used a homogeneous time resolve fluorescence (HTRF) assay to screen a collection of mixture-based combinatorial chemical libraries containing over 18 million compounds. We identified several cyclic guanidine-linked sulfonamides with sub-micromolar activity and evaluated their binding mode using a 3D homology model of the LMTK3 KD.
