Two new fluorophenylindenone derivatives were designed as potential p38α MAPK modulators by preserving the key interactions of the vicinal pyridine/fluorophenyl pharmacophore with the enzyme protein. Interestingly, these two fluorophenylindenone isomers showed divergent activities, with compound 6 behaving as an inhibitor and 5 as a putative activator. These results were rationalized by docking studies and molecular dynamics simulations in terms of stabilization of DFG loop, by compound 5 in a conformation more accessible to phosphorylation.
