Drug Design: Structure- and Ligand-Based Approaches by Kenneth M. Merz (editor), Dagmar Ringe (editor), Charles H.

By Kenneth M. Merz (editor), Dagmar Ringe (editor), Charles H. Reynolds (editor)

Structure-based (SBDD) and ligand-based (LBDD) drug layout are vitally important and lively components of study in either the educational and advertisement nation-states. This e-book offers an entire picture of the sphere of computer-aided drug layout and linked experimental methods. issues coated contain X-ray crystallography, NMR, fragment-based drug layout, unfastened power tools, docking and scoring, linear-scaling quantum calculations, QSAR, pharmacophore equipment, computational ADME-Tox, and drug discovery case reviews. numerous authors from educational and advertisement associations worldwide have contributed to this e-book, that is illustrated with greater than two hundred photographs. this is often the single publication to hide the topic of constitution and ligand-based drug layout, and it presents the main updated details on a variety of themes for the working towards computational chemist, medicinal chemist, or structural biologist.

Example text

The quality of the intensity relative to background is given as the signal-to-noise ratio: I/␴(I ). Because proteins are subject to interactions with x-rays that lead to chemical changes, the latter two factors are counterproductive relative to the intensity of the reflection. 0. (R) Radiation damage is a significant factor for data quality and is usually dealt with by reducing the temperature of the crystal during data collection. The most common temperature is the “cryo” range, achieved by using liquid nitrogen to cool to approximately 100 K.

Shown are several molecules of glucocerebrosidase, showing the arrangement of the packing, the unit cell, and the asymmetric unit. Data were taken from PDB code 1OSG. 3). Ultimately, the quality of the diffraction pattern, in terms of the intensities of the reflections and the resolution of the data set, will determine the quality of the electron density map that can be obtained. 7 with and without additives to prevent crystallization of water, is used. (O) Beyond intensity of a reflection, the ability to distinguish individual reflections from each other is also essential.
