BACKGROUND Genome sequencing and bioinformatics have provided the full hypothetical proteome of many pathogenic organisms. Advances in microarray and mass spectrometry have also yielded large output datasets of possible target proteins/genes. However, the challenge remains to identify new targets for drug discovery from this wealth of information. Further(More)
Aspirin irreversibly inhibits cyclooxygenase (COX) by acetylating a serine residue in the active site. We synthesized a series of novel acylating agents based on our previously reported acetylating compound, O-acetylsalicylhydroxamic acid. One of these, triacetylsalicylhydroxamic acid (TriAcSHA) was more effective than aspirin and O-acetylsalicylhydroxamic(More)
The synthesis and crystal and molecular structures of the platinum(II) complex Pt(HL)Cl where H(2)L is the diacid diamide -[CH(2)N(CH(2)COOH)CH(2)CONH(2)](2), a hydrolytic metabolite of an antitumour active bis(3,5-dioxopiperazin-1-yl)alkane are reported. The complex is square planar and contains HL(-) as a tridentate 2N (amino), O (carboxylate) donor. The(More)
In the structure of the title compound, [Fe(C(7)H(7)N(2)O(2))(3)]·CH(3)CH(2)OH, the Fe(III) atom is in a distorted octa-hedral O(6) environment with the three hydroxamate O atoms (and the three carbonyl O atoms) arranged in a fac configuration and one of the hydroxamate ligands being puckered. The methyl C atom of the ethanol solvent mol-ecule is disordered(More)
The synthetic feasibility of any compound library used for virtual screening is critical to the drug discovery process. TIN, a recursive acronym for 'TIN Is Not commercial', is a virtual combinatorial database enumeration of diversity-orientated multicomponent syntheses (MCR). Using a 'one-pot' synthetic technique, 12 unique small molecule scaffolds were(More)
