    Small molecules that selectively bind to the pseudokinase JH2 domain over the JH1 kinase domain of JAK2 kinase are sought. Virtual screening led to the purchase of 17 compounds among which 9 were found to bind to V617F JAK2 JH2 with affinities of 40 - 300 μM in a fluorogenic assay. Ten analogues were then purchased yielding 9 additional active compounds. Aminoanilinyltriazine 22 was particularly notable as it shows no detectable binding to JAK2 JH1, and it has a 65-μM dissociation constant K d with V617F JAK2 JH2. A crystal structure for 22 in complex with wild-type JAK2 JH2 was obtained to elucidate the binding mode. Additional de novo design led to the synthesis of 19 analogues of 22 with the most potent being 33n with K d values of 2-3 μM for WT and V617F JAK2 JH2, and with 16-fold selectivity relative to binding with WT JAK2 JH1.
