Dog CYP2A13 and CYP2A25 were coexpressed with dog NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase (OR) in baculovirus-infected Sf9 insect cells. CYP2A13 effectively catalyzed 7-ethoxycoumarin (7EC) deethylation and coumarin hydroxylation with apparent K(m) values of 4.8 and 2.1 microM, respectively, similar to those observed using dog liver microsomes (7.5 and 0.75 microM,(More)
As novel and drug-resistant bacterial strains continue to present an emerging health threat, the development of new antibacterial agents is critical. This includes making improvements to existing antibacterial scaffolds as well as identifying novel ones. The aim of this study is to apply a Bayesian classification QSAR approach to rapidly screen chemical(More)
Using SciTegic's extended connectivity fingerprint as raw descriptors, a robust partial least-squares model for logP prediction was developed. The PLS model is based on 39 latent variables. An additional 8 correction factors are employed to account for effects such as intramolecular hydrogen bonding. The model performs similarly to ClogP for compounds with(More)
Subgraph querying in a large data graph is interesting for different applications. A recent study shows that top-k diversified results are useful since the number of matching subgraphs can be very large. In this work, we study the problem of top-k diversified subgraph querying that asks for a set of up to k subgraphs isomorphic to a given query graph, and(More)
A new molecular lipoaffinity descriptor was introduced in this paper to account for the effect of molecular hydrophobicity on blood-brain barrier penetration. The descriptor was defined based on Kier and Hall's atom-type electrotopological state indices. Its evaluation requires 2-D molecular bonding information only. A multiple linear regression equation(More)
BACKGROUND The use of structural alerts to de-prioritize compounds with undesirable features as drug candidates has been gaining in popularity. Hundreds of molecular structural moieties have been proposed as structural alerts. An emerging issue is that strict application of these alerts will result in a significant reduction of the chemistry space for new(More)
A simple QSPR model, based on seven 1D and 2D descriptors and artificial neural network, was developed for fast evaluation of aqueous solubility. The model was able to predict the molar solubility of a diverse set of 1312 organic compounds with an overall correlation coefficient of 0.92 and a standard deviation of 0.72 log unit between the calculated and(More)
A rapid throughput equilibrium solubility measurement is described. The method utilizes central liquid storage where compounds are stored as 10mM solution in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). The DMSO is subsequently removed to generate solid like material used for solubility measurement. A full range of available technologies is used including automated liquid(More)
Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4, 2D6, 2C9, 2C19, and 1A2 are the most important drug-metabolizing enzymes in the human liver. Knowledge of which parts of a drug molecule are subject to metabolic reactions catalyzed by these enzymes is crucial for rational drug design to mitigate ADME/toxicity issues. SMARTCyp, a recently developed 2D ligand structure-based(More)
