Comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) has been applied to a large set of 1-[(2-hydroxyethoxy)methyl]-6-(phenylthio)thymine (HEPT) analogues. The starting geometry of HEPT was obtained from crystallographic data of HEPT/HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) complexes. The structures of 101 HEPT derivatives were considered and fully optimized by ab initio(More)
Kalata B1 has been demonstrated to have bioactivity relating to membrane disruption. In this study, we conducted coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations to gain further insight into kB1 bioactivity. The simulations were performed at various concentrations of kB1 to capture the overall progression of its activity. Two configurations of kB1 oligomers,(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)
Phosphomevalonate kinase (PMK) phosphorylates mevalonate-5-phosphate (M5P) in the mevalonate pathway, which is the sole source of isoprenoids and steroids in humans. We have identified new PMK inhibitors with virtual screening, using autodock. Promising hits were verified and their affinity measured using NMR-based (1)H-(15)N heteronuclear single quantum(More)
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous contaminants of the terrestrial environment that have been designated as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Priority Pollutants. In this study, molecular modeling was used to examine the physical and chemical characteristics of soil organic matter (SOM), fulvic acid (FA) and humic acid (HA), as well(More)
Kalata B1 (kB1), a cyclotide that has been used in medical applications, displays cytotoxicity related to membrane binding and oligomerization. Our molecular dynamics simulation results demonstrate that Trp19 in loop 5 of both monomeric and tetrameric kB1 is a key residue for initial anchoring in the membrane binding process. This residue also facilitates(More)
The structural and thermodynamic basis for the strength and selectivity of the interactions of minor groove binders (MGBs) with DNA is not fully understood. In 2003, we reported the first example of a thiazole-containing MGB that bound in a phase-shifted pattern that spanned six base pairs rather than the usual four (for tricyclic distamycin-like(More)
Comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) and quantum chemical calculations were performed on cycloguanil (Cyc) derivatives of the wild type and the quadruple mutant (Asn51Ile, Cys59Arg, Ser108Asn, Ile164Leu) of Plasmodium falciparum dihydrofolate reductase (PfDHFR). The represented CoMFA models of wild type (r(2) = 0.727 and r(2) = 0.985) and mutant(More)
4D quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) and 3D pharmacophore models were built and investigated for cytotoxicity using a training set of 25 lamellarins against human hormone dependent T47D breast cancer cells. Receptor-independent (RI) 4D QSAR models were first constructed from the exploration of eight possible receptor-binding alignments for(More)
