The aim of this study is to propose an improved computational methodology, which is called Compressed Images for Affinity Prediction-2 (CIFAP-2) to predict binding affinities of structurally related protein-ligand complexes. CIFAP-2 method is established based on a protein-ligand model from which computational affinity information is obtained by utilizing 2D electrostatic potential images determined for the binding site of protein-ligand complexes. The quality of the prediction of the CIFAP-2 algorithm was tested using partial least squares regression (PLSR) as well as support vector regression (SVR) and adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS), which are highly promising prediction methods in drug design. CIFAP-2 was applied on a protein-ligand complex system involving Caspase 3 (CASP3) and its 35 inhibitors possessing a common isatin sulfonamide pharmacophore. As a result, PLSR affinity prediction for the CASP3-ligand complexes gave rise to the most consistent information with reported empirical binding affinities (pIC50) of the CASP3 inhibitors.


Synthesis of 2-aziridinyl phosphonates by modified Gabriel-Cromwell reaction and their antibacterial activities
Doğan, Özdemir; Gözen, Ayşe Gül (Elsevier BV, 2011-06-01)
A set of new aziridinyl phosphonates (4a-g) were synthesized by using the Gabriel-Cromwell reaction and its modified version developed in this study and their structures confirmed by HRMS, IR. and NMR spectra. All the compounds were screened for their antibacterial activity. They all showed comparable moderate to good growth inhibitory activity in reference to ampicillin and streptomycin.

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...
Adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS): A new approach to predictive modeling in QSAR applications: A study of neuro-fuzzy modeling of PCP-based NMDA receptor antagonists
Buyukbingol, Erdem; Sisman, Arzu; Akyıldız, Murat; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Adejare, Adeboye (Elsevier BV, 2007-06-15)
This paper proposes a new method, Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) to evaluate physicochemical descriptors of certain chemical compounds for their appropriate biological activities in terms of QSAR models with the aid of artificial neural network (ANN) approach combined with the principle of fuzzy logic. The ANFIS was utilized to predict NMDA (N-methyl-D-Aspartate) receptor binding activities of phencyclidine (PCP) derivatives. A data set of 38 drug-like compounds was coded with 1244 calculated...
Measurement of the t(t)over-bar production cross section using events in the e mu final state in pp collisions at root s=13 TeV
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (2017-03-01)
The cross section of top quark-antiquark pair production in proton-proton collisions at root s = 13 TeV is measured by the CMS experiment at the LHC, using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.2 fb(-1). The measurement is performed by analyzing events in which the final state includes one electron, one muon, and two or more jets, at least one of which is identified as originating from hadronization of a b quark. The measured cross section is 815 +/- 9 (stat) +/- 38 (syst) +/- 19 (lumi) pb, in...
Coupled thermoviscoplasticity of glassy polymers in the logarithmic strain space based on the free volume theory
Miehe, Christian; Mendez Diez, Joel; Göktepe, Serdar; Schaenzel, Lisa Marie (Elsevier BV, 2011-06-15)
The paper outlines a constitutive model for finite thermo-visco-plastic behavior of amorphous glassy polymers and considers details of its numerical implementation. In contrast to existing kinematical approaches to finite plasticity of glassy polymers, the formulation applies a plastic metric theory based on an additive split of Lagrangian Hencky-type strains into elastic and plastic parts. The analogy between the proposed formulation in the logarithmic strain space and the geometrically linear theory of pl...
