The bile salt export pump (BSEP) is located on the canalicular plasma membrane of hepatocytes and plays an important role in the biliary clearance of bile acids (BAs). Therefore, any drug or new chemical entity that inhibits BSEP has the potential to cause cholestasis and possibly liver injury. In reality, however, one must consider the complexity of the BA(More)
The elucidation of protein kinase signaling networks is challenging due to the large size of the protein kinase superfamily (>500 human kinases). Here we describe a new class of orthogonal triphosphate substrate analogues for the direct labeling of analogue-specific kinase protein targets. These analogues were constructed as derivatives of the Src family(More)
Inhibition of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) such as vascular endothelial growth factor receptors (VEGFRs) and platelet-derived growth factor receptors (PDGFRs) has been validated by recently launched small molecules Sutent and Nexavar, both of which display activities against several angiogenesis-related RTKs. EphB4, a receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK)(More)
The myosin super family is an extended family of actin-based motor proteins that can be divided into 15-18 structurally distinct classes (Sellers, J. R (2000) Biochemica et Biophysica Acta, 1496, 3-22; Hodge, T. & Cope, M. J. T. V. (2000) Journal of Cell Science, 113, 3353-3354; Berg, J. S., Powell, B. C. & Cheney, R. E.

Inhibition of signal transduction downstream of the IL-23 receptor represents an intriguing approach to the treatment of autoimmunity. Using a chemogenomics approach marrying kinome-wide inhibitory profiles of a compound library with the cellular activity against an IL-23-stimulated transcriptional response in T lymphocytes, a class of inhibitors was(More)
We consider the problem of maximizing influence in a social network. We focus on the case that the social network is a directed bipartite graph whose arcs join senders to receivers. We consider both the case of deterministic networks and probabilistic graphical models, that is, the so-called “cascade” model. The problem is to find the set of the k most(More)
1. Optimization of renal clearance is a complex balance between passive and active processes mediated by renal transporters. This work aimed to characterize the interaction of a series of compounds with rat and human organic anion transporters (OATs) and develop quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSARs) to optimize renal clearance. 2. In vitro(More)
RATIONALE It is well known that the organic anion transporting polypeptide 1B1 (OATP1B1) plays a major role in the hepatic uptake of a range of drugs. To this end, it is pivotal that the potential for new molecular entities (NMEs) to inhibit OATP1B1 activity be assessed during early drug discovery. The work reported herein describes the development of a(More)
