BACKGROUND A maximum entropy approach is proposed to predict the cytotoxic effects of a panel of colchicine derivatives in several human cancer cell lines. Data was obtained from cytotoxicity assays performed with 21 drug molecules from the same family of colchicine compounds and correlate these results with independent tubulin isoform expression(More)
Tubulin is the target for numerous small molecule ligands which alter microtubule dynamics leading to cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. Many of these ligands are currently used clinically for the treatment of several types of cancer, and they bind to one of three distinct binding sites within beta-tubulin (paclitaxel, vinca, and colchicine), all of which(More)
Human α-synuclein (αS) is an intrinsically disordered protein associated with Parkinson's disease. Molecular mechanisms of corruptive misfolding and aggregation of αS resulting in the disease, as well as the structure and other properties of the corresponding oligomers are not entirely understood yet, preventing the development of efficient therapies.
