Description:
TARGETED PROTEIN DEGRADATION USING BIFUNCTIONAL COMPOUNDS THAT BIND UBIQUITIN LIGASE AND TARGET MCL-1 PROTEIN

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to bifunctional compounds which can bind to a ubiquitin ligase and also to a target protein, such that the target protein is placed in proximity to the ubiquitin ligase in order to induce its degradation.

BACKGROUND

The Ubiquitin-Proteasome System (UPS) is responsible for the maintenance of healthy and well- balanced proteome. In the process of ubiquitination, ubiquitin units are covalently attached to the protein, forming a polyubiquitin chain, which marks the protein for degradation via the proteasome. Ubiquitination is central to the regulation of nearly all cellular processes and is also tightly regulated itself. Ubiquitin ligases facilitate ubiquitination of different proteins in vivo and contribute to precise regulation of the system. Upon recognition, the ubiquitin ligases mediate the attachment of ubiquitin moieties to the target protein, which label it for degradation by the proteasome.

The idea of selective target protein degradation (TPD) by modulation of UPS was first described in 1999 (US2002173049 A1 (PROTEINIX INC) 21 November 2002). One approach to TPD is by the use of bifunctional molecules that bind the ubiquitin ligase and the target protein simultaneously, allowing for efficient ubiquitin transfer to the latter. This concept was first described by Sakamoto KM et al. (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2001 Jul 17;98(15):8554-9) and more recently reviewed by Burslem GM and Crews CM (Cell. 2020 Apr 2;181(1):102-114).

Oncogenic stress, such as DNA damage, may result in programmed cell death, the cellular response meant to prevent the oncogenic transformation. This mechanism depends on an interplay between pro-apoptotic and anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 proteins, and the balance of these proteins is essential for the proper functioning of the cell.

BCL-2, BCL-xL and MCL-lare BH3-domain-containing anti-apoptotic proteins. These proteins bind to effector Bcl-2 proteins Bak and Bax (via their BH3 domains), preventing their pro-apoptotic activity. Inhibition of BH3 domain - BH3 pocket binding interface is a well-known approach to cancer therapy (Leber B, Kale J, Andrews DW. Cancer Discov. 2018 Dec;8(12):1511-1514). High expression of induced myeloid leukaemia cell differentiation protein (MCL-1) is observed in many human cancers and is associated with resistance to cytotoxic drugs. Research shows that inhibition of MCL-lprotein in some malignancies leads to the release of pro-apoptotic proteins and induction of apoptosis. Therefore, targeting MCL-1 can be applied as a therapeutic strategy in these types of cancer which are MCL-ldependent, such as multiple myeloma, acute myeloid leukaemia, chronic myeloid leukaemia, B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, hepatocellular carcinoma and non-small cell lung cancers. This concept was confirmed in vitro and in vivo (Tron AE et al. Nat Commun. 2018 Dec 17;9(1):5341). Also, treatment with Bcl-2 inhibitors and MEK inhibitors often elicits MCL-1 dependence and subsequent inactivation of MCL-1 results in synthetic lethality (Leber B, Kale J, Andrews DW. Cancer Discov. 2018 Dec;8(12):1511-1514). As demonstrated by Montero, J. et al. (Nat. Commun. 10, 5157 (2019)) and Sale, M. J. et al. (Nat. Commun. 10, 5167 (2019)), MCL-1 is a driver of adaptive survival in tumor cells treated with oncogene targeted therapies, therefore MCL-1 targeting drugs are likely to overcome cancer resistance to these therapeutics.

In parallel to the efforts focused on inhibition of MCL-1, targeted degradation appears as an attractive therapeutic alternative. Both Papatzimas et al. (J. Med. Chem. 2019, 62, 11, 5522-5540) and Wang Z et al. (J. Med. Chem. 2019, 62, 17, 8152-8163) have demonstrated degradation of the MCL-lprotein. However, the potency of reported compounds in terms of cellular degradation and the ability to induce apoptosis remains suboptimal. Therefore, alternative chemotypes with improved potency are needed to develop therapeutically applicable MCL-ldegraders.

One of the challenges in the development of MCL-1 targeted therapeutics is related to safety, as MCL-1 has been shown to be essential for cardiac homeostasis in adult murine models, and the absence of MCL-1 led to loss of cardiomyocytes. Clinical trials involving MCL-1 inhibitors are currently on clinical hold to evaluate a safety signal for cardiac toxicity (Wei AH et al. Blood Rev. 2020 Nov; 44: 100672).

LiOH (1.1 eq) was added to a solution of an appropriate ester (1 eq) in THF:water mixture (3:1 or 5:1, 85 mM) and the resulting mixture was stirred overnight at room temperature (20-25°C). The mixture was concentrated under reduced pressure, diluted with water, and acidified with concentrated HCI to pH=2-3. The precipitate was filtered, washed with water, and dried in vacuum to give the target carboxylic acid.

Example method 3: formation of acetylated R x group of R x COOR'

A mixture of an appropriate amine (1 eq.), AC O (3 eq.), and DMAP (0.2 eq.) in dioxane (0.2 M) was heated to 80°C for 2 h. Upon completion, the mixture was cooled down to room temperature (20- 25°C) and concentrated under reduced pressure. The residue was diluted with water (1 x dioxane volume) and extracted with EtOAc (3 x dioxane volume). The organic layers were washed with water, brine, dried over Na SC> , and evaporated to dryness to afford an acylated product typically used without further purification.

Example 177: Synthesis of 2-amino-5-chloro-N-(2.6-dioxopiperidin-3-vHthiophene-3-carbo xamide

Step A: A/-chlorosuccinimide (2.2 g, 16.5 mmol) was added to a solution of 2 -((tert- butoxycarbonyl)amino)thiophene-3-carboxylic acid (3.3 g, 13.6 mmol) in DMF (20 mL) and the reaction mixture was stirred at RT for 2 h. The mixture was diluted with water and filtered. The solids were washed with water and dried to give 2-{[(ferf-butoxy)carbonyl]amino}-5-chlorothiophene-3- carboxylic acid (84% yield).
