Increasingly, pharmaceutical and biotech companies have begun to realize the importance of obtaining solubility information in early drug discovery as it is one of the critical parameters for lead selection and optimization. This report introduces a high-throughput equilibrium solubility (HT-Eq sol) assay using a novel miniaturized shake-flask approach and(More)
The normal electrophysiologic behavior of the heart is determined by the integrated activity of specific cardiac ionic currents. Mutations in genes encoding the molecular components of individual cardiac ion currents have been shown to result in multiple cardiac arrhythmia syndromes. Presently, 12 genes associated with inherited long QT syndrome (LQTS) have(More)
The aim of this study was to understand which parameters are responsible for the selective modulation of compounds solubility in simulated intestinal fluids. The solubility of 25 chemically diverse reference compounds was measured in simulated intestinal fluid (FaSSIF-V2) and in aqueous phosphate and maleate buffers. Electrostatic interactions between(More)
Histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors have shown promise in treating various forms of cancer. However, many HDAC inhibitors from diverse structural classes have been associated with QT prolongation in humans. Inhibition of the human ether a-go-go related gene (hERG) channel has been associated with QT prolongation and fatal arrhythmias. To determine if the(More)
This paper describes for the first time, a high-throughput fluorescence noncell based assay to screen for the drug-phospholipid interaction, which correlates to phospholipidosis. Anionic amphiphilic phospholipids can form complexes in aqueous solution, and its critical micelle concentration (CMC) can be determined using the fluorescence probe(More)
High throughput screening and subsequent hit validation identified 4-isopropyl-3-(2-((1-phenylethyl)amino)pyrimidin-4-yl)oxazolidin-2-one as a potent inhibitor of IDH1R132H. Synthesis of the four separate stereoisomers identified the (S,S)-diastereomer (IDH125, 1f) as the most potent isomer. This also showed reasonable cellular activity and excellent(More)
A co-crystal is defined as a single crystalline structure composed of two or more components with no proton transfer which are solid at room temperature. Our group has come up with the following rationale selection of co-formers for initial co-crystal screening: 1) selection of co-formers with the highest potential for hydrogen bonding with the API and 2)(More)
The design, synthesis and biological evaluation of a novel series of isoindoline-based hydroxamates is described. Several analogs were shown to inhibit HDAC1 with IC(50) values in the low nanomolar range and inhibit cellular proliferation of HCT116 human colon cancer cells in the sub-micromolar range. The cellular potency of compound 17e was found to have(More)
