AZD1152-HQPA | Aurora B kinase inhibitor

AZD1152-HQPA (722544-51-6) is a potent and highly selective inhibitor of Aurora B.1 Aurora B Ki = 0.36 nM; Aurora A Ki = 1,369 nM.2 It inhibits the growth of tumors in multiple cancer models.3-6 Excessive ROS generation7 and upregulated tumor suppressor miRNAs8 have been proposed as a novel mechanisms of cytotoxicity of AZD1152-HQPA.
