Abstract: AbstractThe modulation of pre‐mRNA splicing is proposed as an attractive anti‐neoplastic strategy, especially for the cancers that exhibit aberrant pre‐mRNA splicing. Here, we discovered that T‐025 functions as an orally available and potent inhibitor of Cdc2‐like kinases (CLKs), evolutionally conserved kinases that facilitate exon recognition in the splicing machinery. Treatment with T‐025 reduced CLK‐dependent phosphorylation, resulting in the induction of skipped exons, cell death, and growth suppression in…
