The vasodilatory properties of nitric oxide (NO) have been utilized in pharmacotherapy for more than 130 years. Still today, NO-donor drugs are important in the management of cardiovascular diseases. However, inhaled NO or drugs releasing NO and organic nitrates are associated with noteworthy therapeutic shortcomings, including resistance to NO in some(More)
The ubiquitous heterodimeric nitric oxide (NO) receptor soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) plays a key role in various signal transduction pathways. Binding of NO takes place at the prosthetic heme moiety at the N-terminus of the beta(1)-subunit of sGC. The induced structural changes lead to an activation of the catalytic C-terminal domain of the enzyme and to(More)
Correctly ranking compounds according to their computed relative binding affinities will be of great value for decision making in the lead optimization phase of industrial drug discovery. However, the performance of existing computationally demanding binding free energy calculation methods in this context is largely unknown. We analyzed the performance of(More)
The number of solved X-ray structures of proteins relevant for ADMET processes of drug molecules has increased remarkably over recent years. In principle, this development offers the possibility to complement the quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR)-dominated repertoire of in silico ADMET methods with protein-structure-based approaches.(More)
