    For many years, prevention of inflammation is achieved by inhibition of both cyclooxygenase (COX) enzymes; the eventual outcome is gastrointestinal toxicity. Selective inhibitor design for COX-2 initialized just after discovery of two distinct types of COX enzymes. Both isoforms of COX show great similarities at the active sites. It is still essential to find more potent, more selective and reversible COX-2 inhibitors. Crystallographic structures of COX-1 (pdb code: 1Q4G; Ovis aries COX-1 crystallized ...

  • Structure prediction of human DAT and its binding analysis 

    Authors:Tatar, Gizem

    Dopamine neurotransmitter and its receptors are crucial in cell signaling process in the brain, which is in charge of information transfer in neurons functioning in the nervous system. Therapeutics used for the treatment of related disorders such as Parkinson?s and schizophrenia would be considerably improved with the availability of the three dimensional (3D) structure of the dopamine transporter (DAT) and of the binding site for dopamine and other ligands.Therefore, in this thesis; I have studied ...
