Introduction into Fragment Based Drug Discovery

Fragment-based drug discovery (FBDD) is a method used for finding hit compounds as one strategy of hit identification in the drug discovery process. Fragments are small molecules with a low molecular weight, smaller than lead molecules or druglike molecules. The FBDD technology is based on identifying small chemical fragments, which bind to the biological target …Read More >

Structure-based optimization of hydroxylactam as potent, cell-active inhibitors of lactate dehydrogenase

Structure-based design was utilized to optimize 6,6-diaryl substituted dihydropyrone and hydroxylactam to obtain inhibitors of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) with low nanomolar biochemical and single-digit micromolar cellular potencies. Surprisingly the replacement of a phenyl with a pyridyl moiety in the chemical structure revealed a new binding mode for the inhibitors with subtle conformational change of the …Read More >
