The DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) enzyme family consists of four members with diverse functions and represents one of the most promising targets for the development of novel anticancer drugs. However, the standard drugs for DNMT inhibition are non-selective cytosine analogues with considerable cytotoxic side-effects that have been developed several decades(More)
DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs) are a family of enzymes that methylate DNA at the C5 position of cytosine residues, and their inhibition is a promising strategy for the treatment of various developmental and proliferative diseases, particularly cancers. In the present study, a binding model for hydralazine, with a validated homology model of human DNMT, was(More)
As novel and drug-resistant bacterial strains continue to present an emerging health threat, the development of new antibacterial agents is critical. This includes making improvements to existing antibacterial scaffolds as well as identifying novel ones. The aim of this study is to apply a Bayesian classification QSAR approach to rapidly screen chemical(More)
alpha-Conotoxins are peptide neurotoxins isolated from venomous cone snails that display exquisite selectivity for different subtypes of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR). They are valuable research tools that have profound implications in the discovery of new drugs for a myriad of neuropharmacological conditions. They are characterized by a(More)
A multiple criteria approach is presented, that is used to perform a comparative analysis of four recently developed combinatorial libraries to drugs, Molecular Libraries Small Molecule Repository (MLSMR) and natural products. The compound databases were assessed in terms of physicochemical properties, scaffolds, and fingerprints. The approach enables the(More)
The aim of the current study was to investigate the oral antidiabetic activity of six structurally related flavonoids: flavone (1), 3-hydroxyflavone (2), 6-hydroxyflavone (3), 7-hydroxyflavone (4), chrysin (5) and quercetin (6). Normoglycemic and STZ-nicotinamide diabetic rats were treated with these flavonoids (50 mg/kg) and the hypoglycemic and(More)
Software engineering was introduced to cope with software crisis with two fundamental principles: separation of concerns and modularity. Many programming paradigms have been proposed and used while considering the fundamental principles from the early days. Complex software systems were successfully modularized but complete separation of concerns is still(More)
A biometric system is basically a pattern recognition system. Biometrics based user authentication system serve as a reliable means for meeting the challenges in today's world of information and network security. It has gained enormous interest by scientists and researchers. Unimodal biometric systems that employ only a single biometric trait fails to(More)
Protein kinase B (PKB/AKT) is a promising and attractive therapeutic target in anticancer drug development. Herein, we report the findings of virtual screening for novel ATP-competitive inhibitors of AKT-2 using 2D- and 3D-similarity searching and sequential molecular docking with two crystal structures of AKT-2. Our multistep approach led to the(More)
Despite increased investment in pharmaceutical research and development, fewer and fewer new drugs are entering the marketplace. This has prompted studies in repurposing existing drugs for use against diseases with unmet medical needs. A popular approach is to develop a classification model based on drugs with and without a desired therapeutic effect. For(More)
