A novel virtual screening approach is implemented herein, which is a further improvement of our previously published "target-bound pharmacophore modeling approach". The generated pharmacophore library is based only on highly contributing amino acid residues, instead of arbitrary pharmacophores, which are most commonly used in the conventional approaches in(More)
This study embarks on a comprehensive description of the conformational contributions to resistance of neuraminidase (N1) in H1N1 and H5N1 to oseltamivir, using comparative multiple molecular dynamic simulations. The available data with regard to elucidation of the mechanism of resistance as a result of mutations in H1N1 and H5N1 neuraminidases is not well(More)
Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) viruses of the H5N1 subtype are enzootic in poultry populations in different parts of the world, and have caused numerous human infections in recent years, particularly in Egypt. However, no sustained human-to-human transmission of these viruses has yet been reported. We tested nine naturally occurring Egyptian H5N1(More)
Based on experimental data, the anticancer activity of nelfinavir (NFV), a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved HIV-1 protease inhibitor (PI), was reported. Nevertheless, the mechanism of action of NFV is yet to be verified. It was hypothesized that the anticancer activity of NFV is due to its inhibitory effect on heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90), a(More)
Increasing numbers of HIV infected patients along with severe treatment-associated complications and related deaths make the AIDS pandemic [1]. These inhibitors reduced the virus proliferation and this success made the HIV aspartic protease the prime target for AIDS therapies [2]. In this study, we present the first account of pentacy-cloundecane (PCU)(More)
The epidemiology of influenza virus in pig populations is unique, with different lineages of viruses identified based on spatio-temporal characteristics. Co-circulation of viruses leads to the generation of new strains through genetic reassortment and the consequences of independent evolution of influenza viruses in pigs gives rise to considerable genetic(More)
