Comparing ligand and protein electrostatics of Btk inhibitors In this case study, protein interaction potentials implemented in Flare, Cresset’s structure-based design software, were used to calculate a detailed map of the electrostatic character of the protein active site of Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk), and compared to ligand fields to get a detailed understanding of ligand

Comparing ligand and protein electrostatics of Btk inhibitors

Abstract Protein interaction potentials implemented in Flare,1 Cresset’s structure-based design software, were used to calculate a detailed map of the electrostatic character of the protein active site of Bruton’s tyrosine kinase2 (Btk). The interaction potential maps were compared to those of selected Btk ligands to get a detailed understanding of ligand binding and SAR. 3D-RISM... Read More…

Empowerment of rare disease patients in modern healthcare delivery

  By David Cavalla, Numedicus Limited.         If you’re fond of alliteration you’ll know that you can divide the stakeholders in modern healthcare into three ‘P’s: patients, payers and pharmaceutical companies, with physicians and pharmacists taking additional minor roles. Traditionally the patient has played a passive part, but over recent years the

In silico methods to streamline optimization

It’s a long journey from hit to lead, and the path is called optimization. Your discovery program started with some promising leads from a high throughput screen. The biology has been done and the chemistry has shown that there is an effect on the biochemical assays. You have a series of hit molecules, a set
