Conformational analysis of indomethacin and other nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs leads to formulation of a hypothetical complementary receptor site model. The same model can serve to describe the prostaglandin cyclooxygenase active site, and, indeed, arachidonic and other polyunsaturated fatty acids could be folded on the model in a manner which(More)
A discussion of drug-receptor theory is used to show that the three-dimensional structure, or shape, of molecules is important for biological activity. The computer-assisted molecular modeling system at Merck is described, and it is shown that this system is useful for generating and storing molecular structures, determining preferred conformation,(More)
4-Chlorobenzaldehyde 1-(4-chlorophenyl)-4(1H)-pyridinylidene hydrazone fluorusulfonate (4) was found to have excellent anticoccidial activity in chickens. The synthesis and biological evaluation of related analogues are presented. Presumably 4 shares a common mechanism of action with robenidine (25) since it was not active on a robenidine tolerant strain of(More)
Annotation of bioassay protocols using semantic web vocabulary is a way to make experiment descriptions machine-readable. Protocols are communicated using concise scientific English, which precludes most kinds of analysis by software algorithms. Given the availability of a sufficiently expressive ontology, some or all of the pertinent information can be(More)
