Ligand-orientation based fragment selection in STD NMR screening.

Summary of "Ligand-orientation based fragment selection in STD NMR screening."

While Saturation Transfer Difference (STD) is a widely used NMR method for ligand screening, the selection of specific binders requires the validation of the hits through competition experiments or orthogonal biophysical techniques. We show here that the quantitative STD analysis is a reliable and robust approach to discriminate between specific and nonspecific ligands, allowing selection of fragments that bind proteins with a privileged binding mode, in the absence of any structural data for the protein.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The selection or choice of sexual partner in animals. Often this reproductive preference is based on traits in the potential mate, such as coloration, size, or behavioral boldness. If the chosen ones are genetically different from the rejected ones, then NATURAL SELECTION is occurring.

The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.

Differential treatment or unequal access to opportunities or services based on perceived homosexual preference or orientation.

Screening techniques first developed in yeast to identify genes encoding interacting proteins. Variations are used to evaluate interplay between proteins and other molecules. Two-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for protein-protein interactions, one-hybrid for DNA-protein interactions, three-hybrid interactions for RNA-protein interactions or ligand-based interactions. Reverse n-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for mutations or other small molecules that dissociate known interactions.

Variation occurring within a species in the presence or length of DNA fragment generated by a specific endonuclease at a specific site in the genome. Such variations are generated by mutations that create or abolish recognition sites for these enzymes or change the length of the fragment.
