The models described in this paper for treating congestion in DEA are extended by according them chance constrained programming formulations. The usual route used in chance constrained programming is followed here by replacing these stochastic models with their ''deterministic equivalents.'' This leads to a class of non-linear problems. However, it is shown(More)
Prostate cancer is one of the most prevalent types of malignant cancers in men and has a high mortality rate among all male cancers. Previous studies have demonstrated that Sentrin/SUMO-specific protease 1 (SENP1) plays an important role in the occurrence and development of prostate cancer, and has been identified as a novel drug target for development of(More)
Allostery is the most direct, rapid and efficient way of regulating protein function, ranging from the control of metabolic mechanisms to signal-transduction pathways. However, an enormous amount of unsystematic allostery information has deterred scientists who could benefit from this field. Here, we present the AlloSteric Database (ASD), the first online(More)
Glucokinase (GK) is a glycolytic enzyme that plays an important role in regulating blood glucose level, thus acting as a potentially attractive target for drug discovery in the treatment of diabetes of the young type 2 and persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia of infancy. To characterize the activation mechanism of GK from the super-open state (inactive(More)
Allostery is the most direct and efficient way for regulation of biological macromolecule function and is induced by the binding of a ligand at an allosteric site topographically distinct from the orthosteric site. AlloSteric Database (ASD, http://mdl.shsmu.edu.cn/ASD) has been developed to provide comprehensive information on allostery. Owing to the(More)
MOTIVATION The use of allosteric modulators as preferred therapeutic agents against classic orthosteric ligands has colossal advantages, including higher specificity, fewer side effects and lower toxicity. Therefore, the computational prediction of allosteric sites in proteins is receiving increased attention in the field of drug discovery. Allosite is a(More)
