The N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) is a Na(+) and Ca(2+) permeable ionotropic glutamate receptor that is activated by the coagonists glycine and glutamate. NMDARs are critical to synaptic signaling and plasticity, and their dysfunction has been implicated in a number of neurological disorders, including schizophrenia, depression, and Alzheimer's(More)
The N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) is an ionotropic glutamate receptor, gated by the endogenous coagonists glutamate and glycine, permeable to Ca2+ and Na+. NMDAR dysfunction is associated with numerous neurological and psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, depression, and Alzheimer's disease. Recently, we have disclosed GNE-0723 (1), a(More)
Based on the topological scaffold classification approach to cluster a structural database, we propose a new criterion to evaluate the diversity of a chemical structural database. This criterion is defined as the ratio of scaffold number to total structure number in the database. Six databases have been evaluated by this criterion. To reduce the size of a(More)
Since benzodiazepines have been used widely in the treatment of anxiety, sleeplessness, and epilepsy, the receptor sites for the benzodiazepine are of prime importance. Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) studies and receptor modeling via Flexible Atom Receptor Model (FLARM) for the binding affinities of a series of imidazobenzodiazepines at(More)
