  1. 1. Intracellular unbound drug concentrations : Methodology and application for understanding cellular drug exposure

    Författare :André Mateus; Per Artursson; Pär Matsson; José A. G. Morais; Jeff Krise; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intracellular unbound drug concentrations; free drug; drug binding; drug transport; drug accumulation; cellular drug response; drug target engagement; Pharmaceutical Science; Farmaceutisk vetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Most known drug targets and metabolizing enzymes are located inside cells. Interactions with these proteins are determined by intracellular unbound drug concentrations. Assessing intracellular drug exposure is technically challenging, but essential for predicting pharmacokinetic, pharmacological, and toxicological profiles of new drugs. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Studies of Retroviral Reverse Transcriptase and Flaviviral Protease Enzymes as Antiviral Drug Targets : Applications in Antiviral Drug Discovery & Therapy

    Författare :Muhammad Junaid; Jarl ES Wikberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Virus; enzymes; HIV AIDS; retroviral reverse transcriptase; flaviviral protease; NRTIs; proteochemometrics; drug resistance; DEN; JEV; NS2B H -NS3pro; antiviral; drug targets; drug discovery; drug therapy.; Farmakologi; Pharmacology;

    Sammanfattning : Viruses are a major threat to humans due to their unique adaptability, evolvability and  capability to control their hosts as parasites and genetic elements. HIV/AIDS is the third largest cause of death by infectious diseases in the world, and drug resistance due to the viral mutations is still the leading cause of treatment failure. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Drug discovery against leishmaniasis : Bio- and chemoinformatic guided strategies for target evaluation and hit identification

    Författare :Elisabet Vikeved; UCM Alsmark; Christian Sköld; David Horn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Leishmaniasis; Drug discovery; Lateral gene transfer; Comparative genomics; Virtual screening; Target fishing; Marine natural products;

    Sammanfattning : Leishmaniasis is a neglected tropical disease mainly affecting poor people in developing countries. It is caused by infections of flagellated protozoa belonging to genus Leishmania. The few available drugs are associated with problems such as low effectiveness, severe side effects and resistance development.

  4. 4. Molecular Approaches to Explore Drug-Target Interactions

    Författare :Abdullah Al-Amin; Ulf Landegren; Christopher Schofield; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Drug discovery; target engagement; target engagement-mediated amplification; cellular thermal shift assay; proximity extension assay; in situ PLA; high-content imaging; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Improved means to assess the clinical potential of drug candidates can critically influence development of new therapeutic entities, a central aim in medical life science. Drug discovery and development relies on construction and selection of small organic compounds or biological agents that bind targets of interest. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Fragment-based drug discovery : Novel methods and strategies for identifying and evolving fragment leads

    Författare :Edward A. FitzGerald; Helena Danielson; Hanna-Kirsti Schrøder Leiros; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Drug Discovery; Biophysics; Fragment-based drug discovery; Epigenetics; Biosensors; Surface Plasmon Resonance; Interaction Analysis; Second-Harmonics; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : The need for new drugs became ever more apparent in the year 2020 when the world was faced with a viral pandemic. How drugs are discovered and their relevance to society became part of daily discussions in workplaces and homes throughout the world. Consequently, efficient strategies for preclinical drug discovery are clearly needed. LÄS MER
