This review provides a chronological account of the identification and refinement of the pharmacophore for inhibition of two key serine/threonine protein phosphatases, PP1 and PP2A. The dramatic impact of natural product isolation, molecular modeling, analogue design, biochemical studies, and crystallography on the evolution of the pharmacophore will be described.
