The virtual screening approach for docking small molecules into a known protein structure is a powerful tool for drug design. In this work, a combined docking and neural network approach, using a self-organizing map, has been developed and applied to screen anti-HIV-1 inhibitors for two targets, HIV-1 RT and HIV-1 PR, from active compounds available in the(More)
Quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSARs) for 40 HIV-1 inhibitors, 1-[(2-hydroxyethoxy)-methyl]-6-(phenylthio)thymine and its derivatives, were studied. Fully optimized geometries, based on the semiempirical AMl method, were used to calculate electronic and molecular properties of all compounds. In order to examine the relation between(More)
A new sesquiterpene, 1-formamido-10(1→2)-abeopupukeanane (1), was isolated from the tubercle nudibranch Phyllidia coelestis Bergh, along with 2-formamidopupukeanane (2), which is reported here as a natural product for the first time. A rearrangement pathway toward the unprecedented tricyclo[4.4.0.0(2,8)]decane skeleton is proposed. Both compounds showed(More)
The unregulated epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase (ErbB1-TK or EGFR-TK) protein is involved in the proliferation of more than 50% of all cancer types. The reduction of EGFR-TK activity by small or medium-sized molecules has been proven to be an effective treatment for cancer. There is a widespread belief that Chinese medicinal herbs are(More)
Naphthol derivatives, 2-(3'-hydroxypropyl)-naphthalen-1-ol (2), 2-(3'-hydroxy-2'-methylpropyl)-naphthalen-1-ol (3) and 2-(3'-hydroxy-2',2'-dimethylpropyl)-naphthalen-1-ol (7) were synthesized and already reported by our group. Therefore in this paper we described further synthesis of their ether derivatives, 3-(1-methoxy-naphthalen-2-yl)-propan-1-ol (4),(More)
The interactions between oxaloacetic (OAA) and phosphoenolpyruvic carboxykinase (PEPCK) binding pocket in the presence and absence of hydrazine were carried out using quantum chemical calculations, based on the two-layered ONIOM (ONIOM2) approach. The complexes were partially optimized by ONIOM2 (B3LYP/6-31G(d):PM6) method while the interaction energies(More)
We have investigated the structure and dynamics of the HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (HIV-RT) active site, by modelling the active conformation of the HIV-1 RT/DNA/deoxythymidine triphosphate (dTTP) ternary complex. This has included molecular dynamics simulations with the CHARMM27 force field, and combined quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM)(More)
ADME prediction is an extremely challenging area as many of the properties we try to predict are a result of multiple physiological processes. In this review we consider how in-silico predictions of ADME processes can be used to help bias medicinal chemistry into more ideal areas of property space, minimizing the number of compounds needed to be synthesized(More)
Arylamides have been identified as direct InhA inhibitors which overcome the drug-resistance problem of isoniazid, the first-line drug for tuberculosis treatment. However, arylamide properties are not yet optimal against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Arylamides show high potency in InhA enzyme assay, but they fail in antimycobacterial assay. To achieve the(More)
