Pironetin is a potent inhibitor of alpha-tubulin. Pironetin covalently binds tubulin. Systematic alanine scanning shows, that the pironetin binding site was determined to be Lys352 of alpha-tubulin. Lys352 is located at the entrance of a small pocket of alpha-tubulin, and this pocket faces the beta-tubulin of the next dimer. This is the first compound that covalently binds to the alpha subunit of tubulin and Lys352 of alpha-tubulin and inhibits the interaction of tubulin heterodimers.
