A Fourier transformation based method to mine peptide space for antimicrobial activity. (1/2214)

BACKGROUND: Naturally occurring antimicrobial peptides are currently being explored as potential candidate peptide drugs. Since antimicrobial peptides are part of the innate immune system of every living organism, it is possible to discover new candidate peptides using the available genomic and proteomic data. High throughput computational techniques could also be used to virtually scan the entire peptide space for discovering out new candidate antimicrobial peptides. RESULT: We have identified a unique indexing method based on biologically distinct characteristic features of known antimicrobial peptides. Analysis of the entries in the antimicrobial peptide databases, based on our indexing method, using Fourier transformation technique revealed a distinct peak in their power spectrum. We have developed a method to mine the genomic and proteomic data, for the presence of peptides with potential antimicrobial activity, by looking for this distinct peak. We also used the Euclidean metric to rank the potential antimicrobial peptides activity. We have parallelized our method so that virtually any given protein space could be data mined, in search of antimicrobial peptides. CONCLUSION: The results show that the Fourier transform based method with the property based coding strategy could be used to scan the peptide space for discovering new potential antimicrobial peptides.  (+info)

A comparative study on the cost of new antibiotics and drugs of other therapeutic categories. (2/2214)

BACKGROUND: Drug treatment is becoming more expensive due to the increased cost for the introduction of new drugs, and there seems to be an uneven distribution of medication cost for different therapeutic categories. We hypothesized that the cost of new antimicrobial agents may differ from that of other therapeutic categories and this may play a role in the stagnation of development of new antibiotics. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We performed a pharmaco-economical comparative analysis of the drug cost of treatment for new agents introduced in the United States drug market in various therapeutic categories. We calculated the drug cost (in US dollars) of a ten-day treatment of all new drugs approved by the FDA during the period between January 1997 and July 2003, according to the 2004 Red Book Pharmacy's Fundamental Reference. New anti-neoplastic agents were found to be the most expensive drugs in comparison to all other therapeutic categories, with a median ten-day drug-treatment cost of US$848 compared to the median ten-day drug-treatment costs of all other categories ranging from US$29 to US$301. On the other hand, new antimicrobial drugs were found to be much less expensive, with a median ten-day drug-treatment cost of US$137 and $US85 for all anti-microbial agents and for anti-microbial agents excluding anti-HIV medications, respectively. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: The drug-treatment cost of new medications varies considerably by different therapeutic categories. This fact may influence industry decisions regarding the development of new drugs and may play a role in the shortage of new antimicrobial agents in the fight against the serious problem of antimicrobial resistance.  (+info)

Hydrogen sulfide: third gaseous transmitter, but with great pharmacological potential. (3/2214)

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S), which is well known traditionally as a toxic gas, has been proven to be produced endogenously by 3 enzymes in mammalian tissues and plays important roles in physiological and pathophysiological conditions. In the central nervous system, H2S functions as not only a neuromodulator, but also a neuroprotectant against oxidative stress. In the cardiovascular system, H2S relaxes vascular smooth muscles by the activation of KATP channels and inhibits smooth muscle cell proliferation via the mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling pathway. These effects are important for maintaining blood pressure and preventing vessel structural remodeling, and identifies H2S as an important factor in the development of some vascular diseases, such as hypertension. H2S also shows cardioprotective effects in ischemic myocardium and septic and endotoxin shock. Recent studies have demonstrated a new mechanism to explain the motor effect of H2S on the rat detrusor muscle, which is through the activation of the capsaicin-sensitive primary neuron. This review focuses on the recent research achievements on H2S and discloses the great potential of H2S as the third gaseous transmitter in cardiac protection.  (+info)

Theodore E. Woodward Award: development of novel, EBV-targeted therapies for EBV-positive tumors. (5/2214)

The near universal presence of EBV in certain tumors suggests that new EBV-based therapies could be developed for these malignancies. We have explored one EBV-based therapy that involves the purposeful induction of lytic EBV infection in tumors. Induction of lytic EBV infection in tumors activates expression of EBV-encoded kinases that convert the prodrug, ganciclovir, to its active cytotoxic form. In mouse models for EBV-positive tumors, the combination of lytic-inducing chemotherapy and ganciclovir is much more effective than either agent alone for treating tumors. Another potential EBV-based target is the cellular protein, CD70. EBV-positive tumors commonly express CD70, while CD70 expression in normal cells is restricted to a few highly activated B cells and T cells. Anti-CD70 monoclonal antibody inhibits the growth of CD70-positive (but not CD70-negative) Burkitt's lymphomas in SCID mice. Finally, while completely lytic EBV infection is clearly incompatible with tumor cell growth, we recently discovered that small numbers of lytically-infected cells actually promote the growth of EBV-immortalized lymphocytes in SCID mice, through the release of paracrine growth factors as well as angiogenic factors. Thus, agents that prevent the earliest stage of lytic EBV infection (such as fatty acid synthase inhibitors), rather than the later stage of viral replication, might also be useful in the treatment of early-stage EBV-positive tumors.  (+info)

Structure-based drug development is viewed as cost-effective and time-consuming method for discovery and development of hits to lead compounds. In this review we will discuss the suitability of fragment-based methods for developing new chemotherapeutics against neglected diseases, providing examples from our tuberculosis programme.. AB - The problems ... Fragment screening services and fragment optimization collectively form the fragment-based drug discovery market.

Fragment-based drug discovery is an emerging process that has gained popularity in recent years. The process starts from small molecules called fragments. One major step in fragment-based drug discovery is fragment screening, which is a strategy to screen libraries of small molecules to find hits. The strategy in theory is more efficient than traditional high-throughput screening that works with larger molecules. As fragments intrinsically possess weak affinity to a target, detection techniques of high sensitivity to affinity are required for fragment screening. Furthermore, the use of different screening methods is necessary to improve the likelihood of success in finding suitable fragments. Since no single method can work for all types of screening, there is a demand for new techniques. The aim of this thesis is to introduce weak affinity chromatography (WAC) as a novel technique for fragment screening.. WAC is, as the name suggests, an affinity-based liquid chromatographic technique that ...
The conjugation of the small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) to protein substrates is an important post-translational modification that has ramifications for cancer and other diseases. As the sole E2 enzyme in the tightly regulated E1/E2/E3 SUMOylation enzymatic cascade, Ubc9 plays a central role in the conjugation of all three SUMO isoforms to a variety of protein targets. Although Ubc9 is viewed as a promising anti-cancer drug target, the development of small-molecule Ubc9 inhibitors has proven to be very difficult. In the past decade, fragment-based drug design has emerged as a powerful approach to identify ligands for challenging protein targets that can provide excellent starting points for the development of potent inhibitors. By X-ray crystallographic fragment screening, we have identified two small-molecule fragments that bind to Ubc9 at a location that is distal from its active site. Although these fragments have weak affinity for Ubc9, biochemical assays have confirmed that they inhibit ...

High-throughput screening remains one of the most powerful, unbiased approaches for small molecule drug discovery.. Today, the toolbox for high-throughput screening features traditional label-dependent approaches and novel label-free technologies. Researchers determine which methodology offers the most promising path forward for their target, taking into account assay sensitivity, data quality, costs, and speed. Moreover, many companies opt to outsource drug discovery efforts to contract research organizations, which offer a particular expertise and an established discovery infrastructure to lead hit identification and hit-to-lead programs.. In this white paper, we discuss important aspects to consider when choosing a methodology for drug discovery. ...
After 20 years of sometimes quiet growth, fragment-based drug discovery (FBDD) has become mainstream. More than 30 drug candidates derived from fragments have entered the clinic, with two approved and several more in advanced trials. FBDD has been widely applied in both academia and industry, as evi …
The reason for the low number of successful new CNS drugs is the subject of debate, although it is undoubtedly related to their higher attrition rate during development, particularly from issues related to failures of on-target biological hypotheses. To address this problem, there has been a recent emphasis on research to tackle these issues at an earlier stage in the drug discovery pathway. In particular, there has been increased interest in target discovery both for the identification of novel targets and reducing the subsequent failure from incorrect biological hypotheses through early validation.. Target discovery, which involves the identification and early validation of disease-modifying targets, is an essential first step in the drug discovery process. Furthermore, although the knowledge of the target for a small molecule drug is not required by the FDA for drug development, it is crucial information if the drug discovery process is to be made more efficient and effective. Identifying the ...

Jim Wells (UCSF) gave a magisterial keynote address that emphasized how useful fragments can be for tackling difficult targets such as protein-protein interactions (PPIs). In fact, many of the talks in the protein-protein interaction track relied on fragments. Thats not to say its easy. Rod Hubbard (University of York and Vernalis) emphasized that advancing fragments to leads against such targets can take a long time and often requires patience that strains the management of many organizations. Fragment hits against PPIs usually have lower ligand efficiencies (0.23-0.25 kcal/mol/HA if youre lucky), and improving potency can be a bear. Rhian Holvey (University of Cambridge) presented a nice example of how she was able to find millimolar fragments that bind to the anti-mitotic target TPX2, potentially blocking its interaction with importin-alpha, but even structural information was not enough to get to potent inhibitors ...
One theme throughout the conference was the observation that fragments bind at multiple sites on proteins. Harren noted that Astex researchers have found fragments bound (crystallographically) to 54 sites on 25 targets - an average of 2.2 sites per target. Some targets are even more site-rich: Joe Patel (AstraZeneca) performed a crystallographic screen on a complex of Ras and SOS and found four binding sites, including one previously discussed here. In this effort, 1200 fragments were screened in pools of 4, and in one case two fragments from the same pool each bound only when they were both present at the same time - each fragment alone showed no binding by NMR or crystallography ...

In 2009, the same development team created Adam, a robot scientist that became the first machine to independently discover new scientific knowledge. They used the knowledge from that experiment to create Eve with the purpose of speeding up the drug discovery process and make it more economical. In the published study, the researchers discuss describe how the robot is able to identify promising new drug candidates for malaria and other neglected tropical diseases, such as African sleeping sickness and Chagas disease.. Neglected tropical diseases are a scourge of humanity, infecting hundreds of millions of people, and killing millions of people every year, said Steve Oliver, a professor from the Cambridge Systems Biology Centre and the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge. We know what causes these diseases and that we can, in theory, attack the parasites that cause them using small molecule drugs. But the cost and speed of drug discovery and the economic return make them ...
Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research, Cambridge, USA. Affinity proteomics and target identification for small molecule drug candidates. Affinity proteomics has become a valuable tool in preclinical small molecule drug discovery, in particular in the context of target identification and elucidation of the mechanism of action for drug candidates from phenotypic and pathway-centric approaches to drug discovery. Quantitative chemoproteomics, employing variations of a competition-based approach to small molecule affinity chromatography and mass spectrometry-based protein identification and quantitation, identifies cellular protein interactors and thus potential targets of drug candidates under conditions approximating the disease-relevant in vivo situation. Several examples will be presented and discussed in the context of orthogonal approaches to the generation of target hypotheses. On the other hand, the identification of protein-protein interactions using e.g. an affinity-tagged bait ...

Scientists demonstrate new method of producing a specific class of organic compounds, which promises to accelerate drug discovery research for several diseases.. Several drugs, including those for depression, schizophrenia, and malaria, would not be if not for a type of organic chemical compound called alicyclic compounds. These compounds are 3D structures formed when three or more carbon atoms join in a ring via covalent bonds, but the ring is not aromatic.. Aromatic compounds (or arenes) are another class of organic compounds which are 2D structures with reactive properties distinct from those of alicyclic compounds. A well-known example is benzene, the six-carbon ring comprising alternating single- and double-bonds between the carbon atoms.. By dearomatizing arenes, one can get alicyclic compounds. In fact, this dearomatization is one of the most powerful ways of obtaining alicyclic compounds. But some of the most abundantly available arenes, such as benzene and naphthalene, are very stable, ...
The original iPS methods employed retroviruses to introduce the four cDNAs into cells7,8. Until recently, the majority of methods have relied on viral introduction of one form or another - a technique that often results in multiple random integration events, running the risk of insertion activation/inactivation which raises safety issues for downstream applications. In the process of reprogramming, the viral sequences are in - activated and the endogenous genes encoding the reprogramming factors reactivated but concerns surround the continued overexpression of pluripotency genes and the effects this has on a cells ability to be differentiated, or maintain that state in cell transplantation scenarios, risking the eventual formation of teratomas.. A significant technical development came recently with the effective introduction into somatic cells of a single vector expressing all four factors as a single cistron (either using a plasmid, lentivirus or transposon vectors) and then removal of all ...

We see confirmation bias in drug discovery all the time. For instance, if molecular dynamics or fragment-based drug discovery or machine learning or some other technique, say Method X, is your favorite technique for discovering drugs, then you will keep on tracking successful applications of this technique without keeping track of the failures. Why would you do this? Several reasons, some of which are technological and some are sociological. You may have been trained in Method X since graduate school; method X is thus what you know and do best, and you dont want to waste time learning Method Y. Method X might legitimately have had one big success, and you might therefore believe in it - even with an n of 1. Method X might just be easy to use; in that case you are transformed into the man who looks for his keys under the streetlight, not because thats where they are but thats where its easiest to look. Method X could be a favorite of certain people who you admire, and certain other people who ...

Network approaches have demonstrated their potential impact on health-related research, including gene/protein characterization and drug design and side effects (14, 18, 19, 22, 36, 52), yet demonstrations that network information can inform drug target discovery are still limited. Here, we present the first confirmation that virus and host protein interaction data can be integrated to improve large-scale drug target discovery (specifically antiviral target discovery) and reveal additional insights into virus-host interactions. The positions of virus-interacting proteins suggest that the influenza virus has evolved to interact with proteins that influence network behavior, regardless of known abundance-degree biases in PPI data generation (which has not previously been demonstrated). The virus-specific subnetwork reveals that there is a set of proteins with moderately high betweenness in the total network yet low betweenness in the subnetwork. While these proteins may be of high importance to ...

Human cancer cell lines are an integral part of drug discovery practices. However, modeling the complexity of cancer utilizing these cell lines on standard plastic substrata, does not accurately represent the tumor microenvironment. Research into developing advanced tumor cell culture models in a three-dimensional (3D) architecture that more prescisely characterizes the disease state have been undertaken by a number of laboratories around the world. These 3D cell culture models are particularly beneficial for investigating mechanistic processes and drug resistance in tumor cells. In addition, a range of molecular mechanisms deconstructed by studying cancer cells in 3D models suggest that tumor cells cultured in two-dimensional monolayer conditions do not respond to cancer therapeutics/compounds in a similar manner. Recent studies have demonstrated the potential of utilizing 3D cell culture models in drug discovery programs; however, it is evident that further research is required for the development of
The recent boom of the proteomics field, or the analysis of the ever dynamic organismal proteome, has brought many advances with respect to the very nature of how the current drug discovery process is undertaken. The potential the field of proteomics brings in for identifying proteins involved in disease pathogenesis and physiological pathway reconstruction facilitates the ever increasing discovery of new, novel drug targets, their respective modes of action mechanistically, and their biological toxicology (Page).. The challenge in the drug discovery process is to find the exact causes of an underlying disease and find a way to negate them or bring them to normal levels. A mechanistic understanding of the nature of the disease in question is essential if we are to elucidate any target-specific remedy for it. While the causes of many documented clinical problems vary greatly in their nature and origin, in some cases, the cause is found at the protein level, involving protein function, protein ...

Protein structure-based drug design has been contributing to the drug discovery process since the early 1990s. Structural knowledge on the exact interactions of drugs with their target proteins has been applied mainly to predict potency changes of chemically modified lead compounds.. With the 3D-structural information available today, additional aspects of the drug discovery process become predictable. Target-based virtual screening is being applied to identify new unexpected lead structures. Selectivity of compounds between homologous or orthologous proteins can be predicted, offering new possibilities to design selective compounds or predict the suitability of animal models for pharmacodynamic studies. Also the number of x-ray structures of proteins relevant for ADMET properties of drug molecules has remarkably increased during the last few years. This development offers the possibility to modulate or rationally design out unwanted ADMET properties. This covers aspects such as plasma protein ...

Author(s): Perez, Christian; Barkley-Levenson, Amanda M; Dick, Benjamin L; Glatt, Peter F; Martinez, Yadira; Siegel, Dionicio; Momper, Jeremiah D; Palmer, Abraham A; Cohen, Seth M | Abstract: Anxiety and depression are common, highly comorbid psychiatric diseases that account for a large proportion of worldwide medical disability. Glyoxalase 1 (GLO1) has been identified as a possible target for the treatment of anxiety and depression. GLO1 is a Zn2+-dependent enzyme that isomerizes a hemithioacetal, formed from glutathione and methylglyoxal, to a lactic acid thioester. To develop active inhibitors of GLO1, fragment-based drug discovery was used to identify fragments that could serve as core scaffolds for lead development. After screening a focused library of metal-binding pharmacophores, 8-(methylsulfonylamino)quinoline (8-MSQ) was identified as a hit. Through computational modeling and synthetic elaboration, a potent GLO1 inhibitor was developed with a novel sulfonamide core pharmacophore. A lead

Certainly - however it is such a vast area and one where we have not yet developed any internal expertise, especially where defined diseases are concerned. We have recognised this and once again working with local Oxford colleagues and our industrial partners, we have recently established a new open-source platform to use human-derived primary cells - both from patients and healthy individuals - to validate targets for new medicines. We believe this to be much more predictive of underlying mechanism of action than animal models for many diseases. This is more than just an exercise in gathering patient samples and will involve a large network of pre-clinical scientists designing novel chemical probes, working with clinicians who will provide their invaluable insights on disease biology, all alongside industrial expertise. This will speed-up the identification of disease-relevant targets. The platform - called ULTRA-DD, for Unrestricted Leveraging of Targets for Research Advancement and Drug ...
Adipose Biology and Obesity Linked Insulin Resistance: A major research study in the laboratory focuses on the metabolic relationships between obesity and insulin action. This laboratory specifically examines cytoplasmic fatty acid binding proteins and their role(s) in mediating fatty acid metabolism in adipocytes and macrophages, particularly leukotriene synthesis. Using a combination of biochemical, biophysical and molecular methodologies, the laboratory studies the synthesis of inflammatory lipids in macrophages and other cells. Importantly, animal models either null or transgenic for fatty acid binding proteins reveal that intracellular lipid metabolism control the synthesis and secretion of adipose-derived cytokines (adipokines) linked to glucose and lipid metabolism in muscle and liver. Using a drug discovery approach, small molecule inhibitors of FABPs have been identified that exhibit anti-inflammatory properties in macrophages. Such studies provide a framework for the analysis of ...
The origin of many modern drugs is derived from ethnopharmacology, traditional medicine, and reverse pharmacology. Natural products have been a boon for both organic as well as medicinal chemists and practitioners of traditional medicine in exploring new biosynthetic pathways, charting novel synthesis strategies, and finding cures for human diseases. However, there has been a de-emphasis on natural product-based drug discovery programs over the last 20 years by the pharmaceutical industry, in part because of a perceived promise of high-throughput screening and combinatorial chemistry which never came to fully meet heightened expectations ...

Cambridge, UK, September 3rd 2010 - Prosarix announces successful completed of EEDA funded program on the development of chiral SAR panels for drug discovery.. Pharmaceutical companies develop biologically active lead compounds using a variety of methods e.g. rational approaches (fragment-based discovery, computer-based design) or screening large collections of molecules (HTS - high throughput screening). From an identified hit, large numbers of structurally-related compounds are synthesised in order to optimise both the drug-like properties of the molecule and to define the maximum scope of protectable IP.. A recent trend by companies working in this structure activity relationship (SAR) stage of drug discovery is to utilise more complex molecular structures, which typically possess chirality, i.e. the compound can exist in two or more stereospecific forms. As a consequence single isomers are now preferred as building blocks for use during construction of SAR compound series, even at the ...

A raw dataset including measures and dimensions is processed, by a preprocessing module, using an algorithm that produces a preprocessed dataset such that at least one type of statistical analysis of the preprocessed dataset yields equal results to the same type of statistical analysis of the raw dataset. The preprocessed dataset is then analyzed by a statistical analysis module to identify subsets of the preprocessed dataset that include a non-random structure or pattern. The analysis of the preprocessed dataset includes the at least one type of statistical analysis that produces the same results for both the preprocessed and raw datasets. The identified subsets are then ranked by a statistical ranker based on the analysis of the preprocessed dataset and a subset is selected for visualization based on the rankings. A visualization module then generates a visualization of the selected identified subset that highlights a non-random structure of the selected subset.
Baseline characteristics were not different between cases and controls, except for beta-blocker use and which was higher in cases, and mean (SD) CFR which was lower in cases [1.19 (0.23) and 2.78 (0.78) in cases and controls respectively; p < 0.01]. We identified 5345 peptides corresponding to 209 proteins, and identified 197 proteins by peptides with suitable properties to infer relative quantitation values. While the calculated values for some proteins (e.g. vascular cell adhesion molecule-1, apolipoprotein C and Von Willebrand Factor) indicate fold-differences between groups, these are most likely a result of high values in only 1-2 patients and are not statistically significant ...

A widely used screening tool deployed in the early phases of drug discovery to weed out undesirable compounds is wrong so often it cant be trusted on its own, according to scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.. PAINS-or pan-assay interference compounds -are a prominent source of false positives in the drug-discovery process. PAINS are biologically active compounds that masquerade as potential drug candidates during the initial high volume screening used to search for possible new drugs. PAINS work by disrupting the assay technology used in the screening to report biological activity, but they are not active against the intended biological target.. Seven years ago, a team of scientists identified a set of a molecular fingerprints that they said could be used to identify PAINS compounds. They found 480 molecular fragments they called PAINS alerts. The presence of a PAINS alert in a compound meant the compound was a PAIN. Pharmaceutical scientist were grateful to finally ...
New York - September 19, 2019 - BOC Sciences, a New York-based supplier of various bio-chemicals such as inhibitors, APIs, metabolites and impurities, announced earlier this month to launch cell apoptosis assay service for scientists engaged in drug discovery research. With expertise and well-published cell based assays from BOC Sciences, researchers now dont need to worry about apoptosis detection anymore.. Apoptosis, or alternatively referred to as programmed cell death, plays an important role in many human diseases. Controlled by multiple signaling and effector pathways, apoptosis is found to be closely linked with caspase related apoptotic enzyme cascades, mitochondrial depolarization, DNA fragmentation and ultimately cell blebbing and destruction. This offers new insights for scientists who are seeking new treatment for various diseases: through approaches of genetically modulating these apoptosis-associated pathways, new therapies might be discovered. Many human conditions like ...
