Understanding the interaction between drug molecules and proteins is one of the main challenges in drug design. Several tools have been developed recently to decrease the complexity of the process. Artificial intelligence and machine learning methods have promising results in predicting the affinities. Recently, accurate estimations have been performed by extracting the electrostatic potentials from images of the drug-protein binding sites which were generated by autodocking simulator. In this study, a new algorithm has been implemented, which is a modified version of CIFAP, to predict binding affinities of CheckPoint Kinase1 and Caspase3 inhibitors.

Understanding the interaction between drug molecules and proteins is one of the main challenges in drug design. Several tools have been developed recently to decrease the complexity of the process. Artificial intelligence and machine learning methods offer promising results in predicting the binding affinities. It becomes possible to do accurate predictions by using the known protein-ligand interactions. In this study, the electrostatic potential values extracted from 3-dimensional grid cubes of the drug-pr...
Reinvestigation of the synthetic and mechanistic aspects of Mn(III) acetate mediated oxidation of enones
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Reis, O; Igdir, AC (Elsevier BV, 2004-04-05)
Mn(OAc)(3) mediated alpha'-acetoxylation of alpha,beta-unsaturated enones is reinvestigated from a synthetic and mechanistic point of view and an improved procedure based on the use of acetic acid as a co-solvent is presented. Excellent results were obtained for a variety of structurally diverse and synthetically important enones under the optimized conditions.
Synthesis of new derivatives of boehmeriasin A and their biological evaluation in liver cancer
Guzelcan, Ece Akhan; Baxendale, Ian R.; Atalay, Rengül; Baumann, Marcus (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-15)
Two series of boehmeriasin A analogs have been synthesized in short and high yielding processes providing derivatives differing either in the alkaloid's pentacyclic scaffold or its peripheral substitution pattern. These series have enabled, for the first time, comparative studies into key biological properties revealing a new lead compound with exceptionally high activity against liver cancer cell lines in the picomolar range for both well (Huh7, Hep3B and HepG2) and poorly (Mahlavu, FOCUS and SNU475) diffe...
Partially Observable Gene Regulatory Network Control Without a Boundary on Horizon
Erdogdu, Utku; Polat, Faruk; Alhajj, Reda (2012-11-09)
Gene regulatory networks (GRNs) govern the protein transcription process in the cell and interactions among genes play a vital role in determining the biosynthesis rate of proteins. By using intervention techniques discovered by biological research it is possible to control a GRN, thus promoting or demoting the expression rate of a certain gene. In this work, this control task is studied in a partially observable setting where interventions lack perfect knowledge of the expression level of all genes. Moreov...
Functional Constraints on Replacing an Essential Gene with Its Ancient and Modern Homologs
Kacar, Betul; Garmendia, Eva; Tunçbağ, Nurcan; Andersson, Dan I.; Hughes, Diarmaid (2017-07-01)
Genes encoding proteins that carry out essential informational tasks in the cell, in particular where multiple interaction partners are involved, are less likely to be transferable to a foreign organism. Here, we investigated the constraints on transfer of a gene encoding a highly conserved informational protein, translation elongation factor Tu (EF-Tu), by systematically replacing the endogenous tufA gene in the Escherichia coli genome with its extant and ancestral homologs. The extant homologs represented...
