For several drug leads obtained by tethering weak binding ligands, the dissociation constant is smaller than the product of those of the individual fragments by a factor named the linking coefficient, E. This favorable contribution is attributed to the entropic gain that is realized when two weak binding ligands are tethered. Here we show a case study where(More)
The presence of extensive reciprocal conformational freedom between the catalytic and the hemopexin-like domains of full-length matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) is demonstrated by NMR and small angle x-ray scattering experiments. This finding is discussed in relation to the essentiality of the hemopexin-like domain for the collagenolytic activity of(More)
