Potent and selective small-molecule mediated inhibition of the cell's replication machinery remains a principal aim in the development of novel therapeutics and biological probes. Recent efforts have identified small molecules capable of arresting the cell cycle via specific interaction with a variety of intracellular protein targets. Advances in combinatorial and diversity oriented synthetic methods, coupled with a continued effort to identify sources of bioactive natural products, promise to contribute to the growing library of small-molecule inhibitors of the cell cycle.
