A dynamic combinatorial library of ligands derived from hydrazines A and isatins B was assembled in the presence of crystals of the target protein, cyclin-dependent kinase 2 (CDK2). Unambiguous detection of potent ligands, formed as part of the library, was successfully achieved by X-ray crystallographic analysis.
