  • Glycogen phosphorylase as a target for type 2 diabetes: Synthetic, biochemical, structural and computational evaluation of novel N-acyl-N´-(β-D-glucopyranosyl) urea inhibitors 

    Kantsadi, A. L.; Parmenopoulou, V.; Bakalov, D. N.; Snelgrove, L.; Stravodimos, G. A.; Chatzileontiadou, D. S. M.; Manta, S.; Panagiotopoulou, A.; Hayes, J. M.; Komiotis, D.; Leonidas, D. D. (2015)
    Glycogen phosphorylase (GP), a validated target for the development of anti-hyperglycaemic agents, has been targeted for the design of novel glycopyranosylamine inhibitors. Exploiting the two most potent inhibitors from ...
  • Marilines A-C: Novel phthalimidines from the sponge-derived fungus Stachylidium sp 

    Almeida, C.; Hemberger, Y.; Schmitt, S. M.; Bouhired, S.; Natesan, L.; Kehraus, S.; Dimas, K.; Gütschow, M.; Bringmann, G.; König, G. M. (2012)
    A marine-derived fungus of the genus Stachylidium was isolated from the sponge Callyspongia cf. C. flammea. Chemical investigation of the bioactive fungal extract led to the isolation of the novel phthalimidine derivatives ...
  • Rare and common variants in extracellular matrix gene Fibrillin 2 (FBN2) are associated with macular degeneration 

    Ratnapriya, R.; Zhan, X.; Fariss, R. N.; Branham, K. E.; Zipprer, D.; Chakarova, C. F.; Sergeev, Y. V.; Campos, M. M.; Othman, M.; Friedman, J. S.; Maminishkis, A.; Waseem, N. H.; Brooks, M.; Rajasimha, H. K.; Edwards, A. O.; Lotery, A.; Klein, B. E.; Truitt, B. J.; Li, B.; Schaumberg, D. A.; Morgan, D. J.; Morrison, M. A.; Souied, E.; Tsironi, E. E.; Grassmann, F.; Fishman, G. A.; Silvestri, G.; Scholl, H. P. N.; Kim, I. K.; Ramke, J.; Tuo, J.; Merriam, J. E.; Merriam, J. C.; Park, K. H.; Olson, L. M.; Farrer, L. A.; Johnson, M. P.; Peachey, N. S.; Lathrop, M.; Baron, R. V.; Igo, R. P.; Klein, R.; Hagstrom, S. A.; Kamatani, Y.; Martin, T. M.; Jiang, Y.; Conley, Y.; Sahel, J. A.; Zack, D. J.; Chan, C. C.; Pericak-Vance, M. A.; Jacobson, S. G.; Gorin, M. B.; Klein, M. L.; Allikmets, R.; Iyengar, S. K.; Weber, B. H.; Haines, J. L.; Léveillard, T.; Deangelis, M. M.; Stambolian, D.; Weeks, D. E.; Bhattacharya, S. E.; Chew, E. Y.; Heckenlively, J. R.; Abecasis, G. R.; Swaroop, A. (2014)
    Neurodegenerative diseases affecting the macula constitute amajor cause of incurable vision loss and exhibit considerable clinical and genetic heterogeneity, from early-onset monogenic disease to multifactorial lateonset ...
  • REPLACE: A strategy for iterative design of cyclin-binding groove inhibitors 

    Andrews, M. J. I.; Kontopidis, G.; McInnes, C.; Plater, A.; Innes, L.; Cowan, A.; Jewsbury, P.; Fischer, P. M. (2006)
    We describe a drug-design strategy termed REPLACE (REplacement with Partial Ligand Alternatives through Computational Enrichment) in which nonpeptidic surrogates for specific determinants of known peptide ligands are ...
  • A shape descriptor for fast complementarity matching in molecular docking 

    Axenopoulos, A.; Daras, P.; Papadopoulos, G.; Houstis, E. (2011)
    This paper presents a novel approach for fast rigid docking of proteins based on geometric complementarity. After extraction of the 3D molecular surface, a set of local surface patches is generated based on the local surface ...
  • Truncation and optimisation of peptide inhibitors of cyclin-dependent kinase 2-cyclin A through structure-guided design 

    Kontopidis, G.; Andrews, M. J.; McInnes, C.; Plater, A.; Innes, L.; Renachowski, S.; Cowan, A.; Fischer, P. M. (2009)
    The cyclin-dependent kinase 2-cyclin A complex is an important regulator of the DNA-synthesis phase of the mammalian cell cycle, which is frequently deregulated in cancer. Rather than blocking the ATP-binding site of the ...
  • Unsaturation: An important structural feature to nucleosides' antiviral activity 

    Manta, S.; Kiritsis, C.; Dimopoulou, A.; Parmenopoulou, V.; Kollatos, N.; Tsotinis, A.; Komiotis, D. (2014)
    In the search of effective, selective and nontoxic antiviral agents, a variety of nucleoside analogues have been synthesized, with different functionalities in the carbohydrate moiety and/or the heterocyclic base. Nucleoside ...
