Hierarchical structure-based virtual screening against the sphingosine kinase 1(SphK1) binding pocket was performed. 25 compounds were selected for biological evaluation. Compound 25 exhibited comparable SphK1 and SphK2 inhibitory activities and anti-proliferative effects on U937 cells to the positive control N,N-dimethylsphingosine (DMS) 1. Further molecule dynamic (MD) simulations revealed the binding mode between SphK1 and 25.
