A selective jumonji H3K27 demethylase inhibitor modulates the proinflammatory macrophage response
The jumonji (JMJ) family of histone demethylases are Fe2+- and α-ketoglutarate-dependent oxygenases that are essential components of regulatory transcriptional chromatin complexes. These enzymesExpand
Crystal Structure of Human Cytochrome P450 2D6*
Cytochrome P450 2D6 is a heme-containing enzyme that is responsible for the metabolism of at least 20% of known drugs. Substrates of 2D6 typically contain a basic nitrogen and a planar aromatic ring.Expand
CCR2: characterization of the antagonist binding site from a combined receptor modeling/mutagenesis approach.
We describe here a classical molecular modeling exercise that was carried out to provide a basis for the design of novel antagonist ligands of the CCR2 receptor. Using a theoretical model of the CCR2Expand
Identification of the Binding Site on Cytochrome P450 2B4 for Cytochrome b 5 and Cytochrome P450 Reductase*
A model of cytochrome P450 2B4, which was constructed by homology modeling with the four known crystal structures of the cytochromes P450 (Chang, T.-T., Stiffelman, O. B., Vakser, I. A., Loew, G. H.,Expand
A Model of the Membrane-bound Cytochrome b5-Cytochrome P450 Complex from NMR and Mutagenesis Data*
Background: cytb5 modulates catalysis performed by cytsP450, in vivo and in vitro. Results: The structure of full-length cytb5 was solved by NMR, and the cytP450-binding site on cytb5 was identifiedExpand
Potential of real-time measurement of GFP-fusion proteins.
Building on the basic design concepts of Randers-Eichhorn [Biotechnol. Bioeng. 55 (1997) 921], an on-line, real-time robust, steam sterilisable optical sensor for monitoring green fluorescent proteinExpand
Enabling Lead Discovery for Histone Lysine Demethylases by High-Throughput RapidFire Mass Spectrometry
A high-throughput RapidFire mass spectrometry assay is described for the JMJD2 family of Fe2+, O2, and α-ketoglutarate-dependent histone lysine demethylases. The assay employs a short amino acidExpand
5-Aryl-4-carboxamide-1,3-oxazoles: potent and selective GSK-3 inhibitors.
5-Aryl-4-carboxamide-1,3-oxazoles are a novel, potent and selective series of GSK-3 inhibitors. The optimization of the series to yield compounds with cell activity and brain permeability isExpand
Crystallizing Membrane Proteins in the Lipidic Mesophase. Experience with Human Prostaglandin E2 Synthase 1 and an Evolving Strategy
The lipidic mesophase or in meso method for crystallizing membrane proteins has several high profile targets to its credit and is growing in popularity. Despite its success, the method is in itsExpand
Identification of 2-(4-pyridyl)thienopyridinones as GSK-3β inhibitors.
The discovery of a novel series of 2-(4-pyridyl)thienopyridinone GSK-3β inhibitors is reported. X-ray crystallography reveals its binding mode and enables rationalization of the SAR. The initialExpand
