A novel series of substituted N,N′-diaryl ureas that act as p38α inhibitors have been designed and synthesized based on two key residues (Gly110 and Thr106) that are different in p38α MAPK than in other kinases. Preliminary biological evaluation indicated that most compounds possessed good p38α inhibitory potencies. Among these compounds, 9g appeared to be the most powerful and is the main compound that we will study in the future. View Full-Text
