High-throughput screening assays have been developed to rapidly identify small molecule inhibitors targeting catalytic group I introns. Biochemical reactions catalyzed by a self-splicing group I intron derived from Pneumocystis carinii or from bacteriophage T4 have been investigated. In vitro biochemical assays amenable to high-throughput screening have(More)
The concept of deuterium enrichment has gained more attention due to its advantages in the studies of clinical pharmacokinetics and metabolic profiles. In addition, it is cost and time efficient to develop deuterium-enriched drugs. Herein we built a combinatorial library of deuterated (S)-oxybutynins which all 8 D-compounds were characterized by MS,(More)
It becomes more and more difficult to discover a new drug by existing models. The concept of deuteration has gained attention due to its advantages in the study of clinical pharmacokinetics and metabolic profiles. Herein we built a library of deuterated atorvastatins using combinatorial chemistry, and all 16 D-compounds were characterized by $$^{1}\hbox(More)
Combinatorial chemistry, which did not even exist fifteen years ago, is a new subfield of chemistry that is starting to provide insights into molecular interactions, biochemical catalysis and drug development. Instead of finding and testing naturally existing compounds for useful activity, the basic aim of combinatorial chemistry studies is to create vast(More)
