Protein-protein complex, composed of hydrophobic and hydrophilic residues, can be divided into hydrophobic and hydrophilic amino acid network structures respectively. In this paper, we are interested in analyzing these two different types of networks and find that these networks are of small-world properties. Due to the characteristic complementarity of the(More)
A method is proposed to construct the weighted amino acid network. The weight of the link is based on the contact energy between residues. For the 197 proteins with low homology, the "small-world" property was studied based on this method. Additionally, analyses were carried out for the statistic characteristics of the network parameters, the influence of(More)
HIV-1 integrase (IN) is essential for the replication of HIV-1 in human cells. At present, the complete structure of complex IN-DNA has not been resolved. In this paper, a HIV-1 IN tetramer model was built with homology modeling and molecular dynamics simulation approach, in which two Mg2+ ions were reasonably located in each catalytic core domain.(More)
In this study, a series of 1,3,4-trisubstituted pyrrolidine-based CCR5 receptor inhibitors were taken as our target with the method of the three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationship (3D-QSAR) analyses in order to investigate the interactions between CCR5 receptor and their inhibitors. For a comparison, Comparative Molecular Field(More)
AIM To understand pharmacophore properties of styrylquinoline derivatives and to design inhibitors of HIV-1 integrase. METHODS Comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) was performed to analyze three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationship (3D-QSAR) of styrylquinoline derivatives. Thirty-eight compounds were randomly divided into a(More)
AIM To develop a novel high-throughput format assay to monitor the integrase (IN) strand transfer (ST) reaction in vitro and apply it to a reaction character study and the identification of antiviral drugs. METHODS The donor DNA duplex, with a sequence identical to the U5 end of HIV-1 long terminal repeats, is labeled at its 5' end with biotin (BIO). The(More)
Styrylquinoline derivatives are demonstrated to be HIV-1 integrase inhibitors. On the basis of our previous CoMFA analysis of a series of styrylquinoline derivatives, N-[(2-substituted-styryl)-5-chloro-8-hydroxyquinolin-7-yl]-benzenesulfonamide derivatives were designed and synthesized,and their possible HIV IN inhibitory activity was evaluated.
The three-dimensional structure of a protein can be treated as a complex network composed of amino acids, and the network properties can help us to understand the relationship between structure and function. Since the amino acid network of a protein is formed in the process of protein folding, it is difficult for general network models to explain its(More)
Microcalorimetry and UV-vis spectroscopy were used to conduct thermodynamic and kinetic investigations of the scission of calf thymus DNA catalyzed by bleomycin A5 (BLM-A5) in the presence of ferrous ion and oxygen. The molar reaction enthalpy for the cleavage, the Michaelis-Menten constant for calf thymus DNA and the turnover number of BLM-A5 were(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe anti-fatigue effect and mechanisms of pre-electroacupuncture (EA) at "Zusanli" (ST 36) in rats undergoing acute treadmill running. METHODS Fifty male SD rats were randomly divided into three groups: a quiet group (group Q, n = 10), a model group (group M, n = 20) and an EA preconditioning group (group EAP, n = 20). After adaptation(More)
