Overview + Rationale

Rationale for a Cancer Target

  • Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) play important roles in the control of cell division and modulate transcription in response to several extra and intracellular cues.
  • The cyclin D–CDK4/6–retinoblastoma (Rb) pathway plays a key role in the G1 phase of the cell cycle. Phosphorylation of Rb and subsequentE2F-mediated transcription are required for G1 cell-cycle progression.
  • Aberrations in the cell-cycle have been implicated in human cancer pathogenesis.

The Rb tumor suppressor protein plays a pivotal role in the negative control of the cell cycle. It is responsible for a major G1 checkpoint, blocking S -phase entry and cell growth. Phosphorylation leads to functional inactivation of Rb. Loss of Rb cell cycle –suppressive functions can be mediated through multiple mechanisms: loss of Rb, increased signaling through CDK4 & 6 amplification, overexpression or aberration of cyclin D/E, and loss of the inhibitory function of gene products, such as CDKN2A/B the latter leading to CDK4/6 activity.

Mechanism of Action

  • PF-07220060 is a selective CDK4 inhibitor with potential antineoplastic activity in several solid tumors 
  • PF-07220060 inhibits the CDK4/cyclinD complex and renders the Rb/E2F transcription system inactive
