The crystal structure of human deoxy hemoglobin (Hb) complexed with a potent allosteric effector (2-[4-[[(3,5-dimethylanilino)carbonyl]methyl]phenoxy]-2-methylpropionic acid) = RSR-13) is reported at 1.85 A resolution. Analysis of the hemoglobin:effector complex indicates that two of these molecules bind to the central water cavity of deoxy Hb in a(More)
Thinking of today's web search scenario which is mainly keyword based, leads to the need of effective and meaningful search provided by Semantic Web. Existing search engines are vulnerable to provide relevant answers to users query due to their dependency on simple data available in web pages. On other hand, semantic search engines provide efficient and(More)
The concept of using affinity and intrinsic activity to analyze drug interactions with receptors has had a long history in pharmacological studies. In the simplest case, the biological response will be proportional to the amount of drug bound, i.e. its affinity. However, the biological response is also mediated by the ability of a drug when bound to exert(More)
This study was designed to investigate the effect of chirality on the allosteric activity of a series of Hb allosteric modifiers. The chiral analogues were based on the lead compound (4), JP7, [1-[4-(((3,5-dimethylanilino)carbonyl)methyl)phenoxy]cyclopentanecarboxylic acid] with different D- and L-amino acids conjugated to the JP7 acid moiety. The D-isomers(More)
Naturally occurring five-membered heterocyclic aldehydes, including 5-hydroxymethyl-2-furfural, increase the oxygen affinity of hemoglobin (Hb) and strongly inhibit the sickling of homozygous sickle red blood (SS) cells. X-ray studies of Hb complexed with these compounds indicate that they form Schiff base adducts in a symmetrical fashion with the(More)
The rational design and X-ray crystallographic analyses of two symmetrical allosteric effectors of hemoglobin (Hb) are reported. Compound design was directed by the previously solved co-crystal structure of one of the most potent allosteric effectors of Hb, 2-[4-[(3,5-dichlorophenylcarbamoyl)-methyl]-phenoxy]-2-methylpropionic acid (RSR4), which revealed(More)
Compounds that bind to sickle hemoglobin (Hb S) producing an allosteric shift to the high-affinity Hb S that does not polymerize are being developed to treat sickle cell anemia (SCA). In this study, three series of pyridyl derivatives of substituted benzaldehydes (Classes I-III) that combine structural features of two previously determined potent(More)
OBJECTIVE To detect the adverse drug reactions (ADRs) through spontaneous reporting system in IGGMC&H, Nagpur and analyze them using World Health Organization (WHO) assessment scales. METHOD An observational, prospective study was conducted based on ADRs reported between 1st June '05 to 31st May '09 to the ADR reporting unit of the hospital. The ADRs(More)
A series of allosteric effectors of hemoglobin, 2-(aryloxy)-2-alkanoic acids, was prepared to investigate the effect of the stereocenter on allosteric activity. The chiral analogues were based on the lead compound, RSR13 (3b), with different alkyl/alkanoic and cycloalkyl/cycloalkanoic groups positioned at the acidic chiral center. Of the 23 racemic(More)
Considering today’s web scenario, there is a need of effective and meaningful search over the web which is provided by Semantic Web. Existing search engines are keyword based. They are vulnerable in answering intelligent queries from the user due to the dependence of their results on information available in web pages. While semantic search engines provides(More)
