We report a novel series of non-peptide ligands that inhibit the growth factor receptor-bound protein 2 (Grb2)-Src homology 2 (SH2) domain binding, designed using a combined computational and NMR-driven approach. We have identified a new lead compound, 1n (IC50 = 56 μM), which is cytotoxic in HER2-positive breast cancer cells and disrupts the interaction between HER2 and Grb2. Thus, 1n can be used as a scaffold for the development of efficient Grb2-SH2 domain binding inhibitors. © 2011 American Chemical Society.
