Structure-based pharmacophore models were built by using LigandScout and used for virtual screening of the SPECS database to identify new potential 11beta-HSD1 inhibitors. As a refinement of the results obtained from virtual 3D pharmacophore screening, the best fitting virtual hits were subjected to docking study. The resulting compounds were tested in an(More)
Murine IL-4 is a pleiotropic cytokine with undefined core functional region for eliciting downstream signaling. We used molecular modeling to predict the binding sites recognized by an anti-IL-4-neutralizing mAb (11B.11) and peptide phage display to delineate their makeup. The results of these approaches were confirmed by site-directed mutagenesis analysis.(More)
