eEF-2K is a potential target for treating cancer. However, potent specific inhibitors for this enzyme are lacking. Previously, we identified 2,6-diamino-4-(2-fluorophenyl)-4H-thiopyran-3,5-dicarbonitrile (DFTD) as an inhibitor of eEF-2K. Here we describe its mechanism of action against eEF-2K, on the basis of
