The use of the Electronegativity Equalization Method (EEM) is presented for high performance calculation of molecular electrostatic descriptors, giving quite similar results to those obtained through Density Functional Theory (B3LYP/6-31G*) calculations. Molecular descriptors include atomic charges and different related descriptors as well as Fukui… (More)
Today, more than 40 protein amino acid (AA) sequences of membrane receptors coupled to guanine nucleotide binding proteins (G-proteins) are available. For those working in the field of medicinal chemistry, these sequences present a new type of information that should be taken into consideration. To make maximal use of sequence data it is essential to be… (More)
Proof of the Fukui conjecture via resolution of singularities and related methods. I.
The program Generate, aimed at generating 3-D structures for peptides and peptidomimetics, is presented. The algorithm is based on a build-up procedure, using a library of conformations of amino acid residues. This library is built from conformational analysis of amino acids placed in a di- or tripeptide environment to mimic the surroundings of the amino… (More)
