Reigning of the abnormal gene activation associated with survival signalling in lung cancer leads to the anomalous growth and therapeutic failure. Targeting specific cell survival signalling like JAK2/STAT3 nexus has become a major focus of investigation to establish a target specific treatment. The 2-bromobenzoyl-4-methylphenoxy-acetyl hydra acetyl Coumarin (BP-1C), is new anti-neoplastic agent with apoptosis inducing capacity. The current study was aimed to develop antitumor phramacophore, BP-1C as JAK2 specific inhibitor against lung neoplastic progression. The study validates and identifies the molecular targets of BP-1C induced cell death. Cell based screening against multiple cancer cell lines identified, lung adenocarcinoma as its specific target through promotion of apoptosis. The BP-1C is able to induce, specific hall marks of apoptosis and there by conferring anti-neoplastic activity. Validation of its molecular mechanism, identified, BP-1C specifically targets JAK2(Tyr1007/1008) phosphorylation, and inhibits its downstream STAT3(Tyr705) signalling pathway to induce cell death. As a consequence, modulation in Akt/Src survival signal and altered expression of interwoven apoptotic genes were evident. The results were reproducible in an in-vivo LLC tumor model and in-ovo xenograft studies. The computational approaches viz, drug finger printing confers, BP-1C as novel class JAK2 inhibitor and molecular simulations studies assures its efficiency in binding with JAK2. Overall, BP-1C is a novel JAK2 inhibitor with experimental evidence and could be effectively developed into a promising drug for lung cancer treatment. GRAPHICS] .
