Errors in this process can lead to severe developmental defects and cancer in humans. Key for the accurate distribution of the genome is the mitotic spindle composed of dynamic microtubules (Mts).[1] The shape and function of the mitotic spindle depends on the concerted action of various kinesins, these are molecular motor proteins which as microtubule-stimulated ATPases convert chemical energy into mechanical force. Recently, we identified the kinesin-8 member Kif18A as a central component for the correct alignment of chromosomes at the spindle equator.[2] Furthermore, in vitro analyses revealed that Kif18A distinguishes itself from all other kinesins by its dual functionality: motility and depolymerase activity.[2 4] Owing to their fast and often reversible mode of action, small molecules are ideally suited to dissect the function and mechanism of proteins. Given the complex enzymatic characteristics of Kif18A, we set up a smallmolecule screen to identify inhibitors of Kif18A. Herein we report the discovery of BTB-1 (Figure 1a), the first smallmolecule inhibitor of Kif18A. We show that BTB-1 potently inhibits the ATPase activity of Kif18A (IC50=1.69 mm) but not of other tested key mitotic kinesins. BTB-1 blocks the motility of Kif18A in a reversible manner. Notably, BTB-1 inhibits Kif18A in an adenosine triphosphate(ATP)-competitive but microtubule-uncompetitive manner and slows down the progression of cells through mitosis.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Strittmatter, Tobias</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Marx, Andreas</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Grüner, Tamara</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
