  2. Polo box PLK Inhibitors Target Tumors Resistant to ATP Competitive Compounds

    SBC: PPI PHARMACEUTICALS, LLC            Topic: NCI

    Polo like kinase PLK is a central player in regulating entry into and progression through mitosis Many studies have validated PLK as an anti tumor drug target and its inhibition is potently anti proliferative to cancer cells However recent data suggests that there are two major disadvantages of the conventional approach to blocking the kinase activity of PLK First both general kinome ...
