Protein-based NMR spectroscopy has proven to be a very robust method for finding fragment leads to protein targets. However, one limitation of protein-based NMR is that the data acquisition and analysis can be time consuming. In order to streamline the scoring of protein-based NMR fragment screening data and the determination of ligand affinities using 2D NMR experiments we have developed a data analysis workflow based on principal component analysis (PCA) within the TREND NMR Pro software package. We illustrate this using four different proteins and sets of ligands which interact with these proteins over a range of affinities. Also, these PCA-based methods can be successfully applied even to systems where ligand binding to target proteins is in intermediate or even slow exchange on the NMR time scale. Finally, these methods will work for scoring of fragment binding data using protein spectra that are either highly overlapped or lower in resolution.

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.
Experience-based techniques for problem-solving, learning, and discovery that find a solution which is not guaranteed to be optimal, but sufficient for a given set of goals.
A process that searches for hidden and important connections among information embedded in published literature.
Techniques for separation and identification of ionized molecules based on their drift through a gas phase after being accelerated by an electric field. Their mobilities will be effected by their shape, size, and charge.
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.
