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)
Small molecules that correct the folding defects and enhance surface localization of the F508del mutation in the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane conductance Regulator (CFTR) comprise an important therapeutic strategy for cystic fibrosis lung disease. However, compounds that rescue the F508del mutant protein to wild type (WT) levels have not been identified.(More)
