  • Publication number: 20230242534
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides compounds of Formula (I), (II-1), (II-2), (II-3), or (II-4). The compounds of the present disclosure may be inhibitors of kinases (e.g., a cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) (e.g., CDK7)). In some embodiments, the compounds disclosed herein are selective for inhibiting the activity of a kinase (e.g., CDK7) over certain other kinases (e.g., CDK2, CDK9, CDK12). In certain embodiments, the compounds do not bind or inhibit a 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptor. Also provided are pharmaceutical compositions, kits, methods of use, and uses that involve the compounds disclosed herein. In some embodiments, the compounds are useful in inhibiting the activity of a kinase, inhibiting the growth of a cell, inducing apoptosis of a cell, treating a disease, and/or preventing a disease (e.g., proliferative disease, cystic fibrosis).
