Abstract

A series of aminothiazoles that are potent inhibitors of LIM kinases 1 and 2 is described. Appropriate choice of substituents led to molecules with good selectivity for either enzyme. An advanced member of the series was shown to effectively interfere with the phosphorylation of the LIM kinases substrate cofilin. Consistent with the important role of the LIM kinases in regulating cytoskeletal structure, treated cells displayed dramatically reduced F-actin content.
