Due to the high attrition rate of central nervous system drug candidates during clinical trials, the assessment of blood-brain barrier (BBB) penetration in early research is particularly important. A genetic approximation (GA)-based regression model was developed for predicting in vivo blood-brain partitioning data, expressed as logBB (log[brain]/[blood]).(More)
The binding affinities (IC50) reported for diverse structural and chemical classes of human β-secretase 1 (BACE-1) inhibitors in literature were modeled using multiple in silico ligand based modeling approaches and statistical techniques. The descriptor space encompasses simple binary molecular fingerprint, one- and two-dimensional constitutional,(More)
Two-pore domain potassium (K2P) channel ion conductance is regulated by diverse stimuli that directly or indirectly gate the channel selectivity filter (SF). Recent crystal structures for the TREK-2 member of the K2P family reveal distinct "up" and "down" states assumed during activation via mechanical stretch. We performed 195 μs of all-atom, unbiased(More)
