The explosion of the data both in the biomedical research and in the healthcare systems demands urgent solutions. In particular, the research in omics sciences is moving from a hypothesis-driven to a data-driven approach. Healthcare is additionally always asking for a tighter integration with biomedical data in order to promote personalized medicine and to(More)
The hypocholesterolemic effect of tomato juice has been investigated in an intervention study with rats, along with the possible inhibition effect of bioactive tomato compounds binding to the HMGCR enzyme. Two experimental groups (n = 8 Sprague-Dawley rats) were fed ad libitum for five weeks, with water or tomato juice provided to the control and(More)
The numerous virtual screening (VS) methods that are used today in drug discovery processes differ mainly by the way they model the receptor and/or ligand and by the approach to perform screening. All these methods have in common that they screen databases of chemical compounds containing up to millions of ligands i.e. ZINC database. Larger databases(More)
The medical and socioeconomic relevance of thromboembolic disorders promotes an ongoing effort to develop new anticoagulants. Heparin is widely used as activator of antithrombin but incurs side effects. We screened a large database in silico to find alternative molecules and predicted d-myo-inositol 3,4,5,6-tetrakisphosphate (TMI) to strongly interact with(More)
The aim of the study was to characterise the interactions of hydroxycinnamic and chlorogenic acids (CHAs) from green coffee, with isolates of proteins from egg white (EWP), whey (WPC) and soy (SPI), depending on pH and temperature. The binding degree was determined by liquid chromatography coupled to a diode array detector and an ultrahigh resolution hybrid(More)
Adenosine, a widespread and endogenous nucleoside that acts as a powerful neuromodulator in the nervous system, is a promising therapeutic target in a wide range of conditions. The structural similarity between xanthine derivatives and neurotransmitter adenosine has led to the derivatives of the heterocyclic ring being among the most abundant chemical(More)
Fibrillation of alpha-synuclein (α-SN) is a critical process in the pathophysiology of several neurodegenerative diseases, especially Parkinson's disease. Application of bioactive inhibitory compounds from herbal extracts is a potential therapeutic approach for this cytotoxic process. Here, we investigated the inhibitory effects of the Iranian Cuminum(More)
Personalized therapies are required for Fabry disease due to its large phenotypic spectrum and numerous different genotypes. In principle, missense mutations that do not affect the active site could be rescued with pharmacological chaperones. At present pharmacological chaperones for Fabry disease bind the active site and couple a stabilizing effect, which(More)
The capacity of cyclodextrins (CDs) to extract phenolic compounds from grape pomace was evaluated and compared with that of ethanol/water or aqueous extraction. The extraction method (stirring and ultrasound), temperature and time were also studied. Total phenolic compounds (TPC) and antioxidant activity were measured, and HPLC analysis was used to identify(More)
tionally intensive kernels present in current VS methods, we may highlight the calculation of the molecular surface in terms of the solvent accessible surface area (SASA). We can model efficiently solvation in an implicit way by the calculation of SASA and posterior consideration of the hydrophobic and hydrophilic character of individual atoms (Eisenberg(More)
