Carboxylic acid derivatives display potential selectivity for human histone deacetylase 6: Structure-based virtual screening molecular docking and dynamics simulation studies Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Elsevier Science, 2018)Human histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6) has been shown to play a major role in oncogenic cell transformation via deacetylation of alpha-tubulin making it a viable target of anticancer drug design and development. The crystal structure of HDAC6 catalytic domain 2 has been recently made available providing avenues for structure-based drug design campaign. Here in our continuous effort to identify potentially selective HDAC6 inhibitors structure-based virtual screening of similar to 72 461 compounds was ...
Homology modeling of human GABA-AT and devise some novel and potent inhibitors via computer-aided drug design techniques Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2020)Gamma-aminobutyric acid aminotransferase (GABA-AT) is a pyridoxal 5 '-phosphate (PLP)-dependent enzyme which degrades gamma-aminobutyric (GABA) in the brain. GABA is an important inhibitory neurotransmitter that plays important neurological roles in the brain. Therefore, GABA-AT is an important drug target which regulates the GABA level. Novel and potent drug development to inhibit GABA-AT is still very challenging task. In this study, we aimed to devise novel and potent inhibitors against GABA-AT ...
Identification of potential inhibitors of human methionine aminopeptidase (type II) for cancer therapy: Structure-based virtual screening, ADMET prediction and molecular dynamics studies Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Elsevier, 2020)Methionine Aminopeptidases MetAPs are divalent-cofactor dependent enzymes that are responsible for the cleavage of the initiator Methionine from the nascent polypeptides. MetAPs are classified into two isoforms: namely, MetAP1 and MetAP2. Several studies have revealed that MetAP2 is upregulated in various cancers, and its inhibition has shown to suppress abnormal or excessive blood vessel formation and tumor growth in model organisms. Clinical studies show that the natural product fumagillin, and ...
New azole derivatives showing antimicrobial effects and their mechanism of antifungal activity by molecular modeling studies Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Elsevier France-Editions Scientifiques Medicales Elsevier, 2017)Azole antifungals are potent inhibitors of fungal lanosterol 14 alpha demethylase (CYP51) and have been used for eradication of systemic candidiasis clinically. Herein we report the design synthesis and biological evaluation of a series of 1-phenyl/1-(4-chlorophenyl)-2-(1H-imidazol-1-yl) ethanol esters. Many of these derivatives showed fungal growth inhibition at very low concentrations. Minimal inhibition concentration (MIC) value of 15 was 0.125 mu g/mL against Candida albicans. Additionally ...
