Mechanical unfolding and refolding of single RNA molecules have previously been observed in optical traps as sudden changes in molecular extension. Two methods have been traditionally used: "force-ramp", with the applied force continuously changing, and "hopping". In hopping experiments the force is held constant and the molecule jumps spontaneously between(More)
Structure-based and pharmacophore-based virtual screening in combination with combinatorial chemistry and X-ray crystallography led to the discovery of a new class of benzothiadiazole dioxide analogs with functional activity as RORC inverse agonists. The early RORC SAR compound 14 exhibited RORC inhibition in a cell based reporter gene assay of 5.7 μM and(More)
The nuclear receptor retinoid acid receptor-related orphan receptor γt (RORγt) is a master regulator of the Th17/IL-17 pathway that plays crucial roles in the pathogenesis of autoimmunity. RORγt has recently emerged as a highly promising target for treatment of a number of autoimmune diseases. Through high-throughput screening, we previously identified(More)
