Design of natural-product-inspired multi-target ligands by machine learning.

Summary of "Design of natural-product-inspired multi-target ligands by machine learning."

A virtual screening protocol based on machine learning models was used to identify mimetics of the natural product (-)-galantamine. This fully automated approach identified eight compounds with bioactivities on at least one of the macromolecular targets of (-)-galantamine, with different polypharmacological profiles. Two of the computer-generated hits possess an expanded spectrum of bioactivity on targets relevant to the treatment of Alzheimer's disease and are suitable for hit-to-lead expansion. These results advocate multi-target drug design by advanced virtual screening protocols based on chemically-informed machine learning models.

Use of marketing principles also used to sell products to consumers to promote ideas, attitudes and behaviors. Design and use of programs seeking to increase the acceptance of a social idea or practice by target groups, not for the benefit of the marketer, but to benefit the target audience and the general society.

An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.

Immunized T-lymphocytes which can directly destroy appropriate target cells. These cytotoxic lymphocytes may be generated in vitro in mixed lymphocyte cultures (MLC), in vivo during a graft-versus-host (GVH) reaction, or after immunization with an allograft, tumor cell or virally transformed or chemically modified target cell. The lytic phenomenon is sometimes referred to as cell-mediated lympholysis (CML). These CD8-positive cells are distinct from NATURAL KILLER CELLS and NATURAL KILLER T-CELLS. There are two effector phenotypes: TC1 and TC2.

Apparatus that provides mechanical circulatory support during open-heart surgery, by passing the heart to facilitate surgery on the organ. The basic function of the machine is to oxygenate the body's venous supply of blood and then pump it back into the arterial system. The machine also provides intracardiac suction, filtration, and temperature control. Some of the more important components of these machines include pumps, oxygenators, temperature regulators, and filters. (UMDNS, 1999)

A system in which the functions of the man and the machine are interrelated and necessary for the operation of the system.
