Hepatic C virus (HCV) is a global health problem, resulting in liver cirrhosis and inflammation that can develop to hepatocellular carcinoma and fatality. The NS5B polymerase of HCV plays an important role in viral RNA replication process, making it an attractive therapeutic target for design and development of anti-HCV drugs. To search new potent compounds(More)
In an attempt to shed light on how the addition of a benzothiadiazole (BTD) moiety influences the properties of dyes, a series of newly designed triphenylamine-based sensitizers incorporating a BTD unit as an additional electron-withdrawing group in a specific donor-acceptor-π-acceptor architecture has been investigated. We found that different positions of(More)
Serratia marcescens chitinase B (SmChiB) catalyzes the hydrolysis of β-1,4-glycosidic bond, via an unusual substrate-assisted mechanism, in which the substrate itself acts as an intramolecular nucleophile. In this paper, the catalytic mechanism of SmChiB has been investigated by using density functional theory. The details of two consecutive steps(More)
Ultrafast excited-state intermolecular proton transfer (PT) reactions in 7-azaindole(methanol)(n) (n = 1-3) [7AI(MeOH)(n=1-3)] complexes were performed using dynamics simulations. These complexes were first optimized at the RI-ADC(2)/SVP-SV(P) level in the gas phase. The ground-state structures with the lowest energy were also investigated and presented.(More)
The Utah Surrogate Mechanism was extended in order to model a stoichiometric premixed cyclohexane flame (P = 30 Torr). Generic rates were assigned to reaction classes of hydrogen abstraction, beta scission, and isomerization, and the resulting mechanism was found to be adequate in describing the combustion chemistry of cyclohexane. Satisfactory results were(More)
An approach to transforming amorphous organic networks into crystalline covalent organic frameworks (COFs) with retention of the colloidal nanosize and uniform morphology is presented. Specifically, Fe3 O4 nanoclusters are encapsulated by a disordering polyimine network via the Schiff-base reaction. The formed imine bonds could be reconstructed under(More)
The ground state structure and frontier molecular orbital of newly synthesized carbazole-fluorene based D-π-A organic dyes, CFP1A, CFP2A, CFP1CA, and CFP2CA, were theoretically investigated using density functional theory (DFT) at B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) level. These dye molecules have been constructed based on carbazole-fluorene as the electron-donating moiety(More)
The H7N9 avian influenza virus is a novel re-assortment from at least four different strains of virus. Neuraminidase, which is a glycoprotein on the surface membrane, has been the target for drug treatment. However, some H7N9 strains that have been isolated from patient after drug treatment have a R292K mutation in neuraminidase. This substitution was found(More)
Behçet's disease (BD), a multi-organ inflammatory disorder, is associated with the presence of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) HLA-B*51 allele in many ethnic groups. The possible antigen involvement of the major histocompatibility complex class I chain related gene A transmembrane (MICA-TM) nonapeptide (AAAAAIFVI) has been reported in BD symptomatic(More)
The ground-state structure and frontier molecular orbital of D-π-A organic dyes, CFT1A, CFT2A, and CFT1PA were theoretically investigated using density functional theory (DFT) on B3LYP functional with 6-31G(d,p) basis set. The vertical excitation energies and absorption spectra were obtained using time-dependent DFT (TD-DFT). The adsorptions of these dyes(More)
