Summary of "Recent Changes in the Scaffold Diversity of Organic Chemistry as Seen in the CAS Registry."

A large set of organic compounds extracted from the CAS Registry is analyzed to study recent changes in structural diversity. The diversity is characterized using the framework content of the compounds; the framework of a molecule is the scaffold consisting of all its ring systems and all the chain fragments connecting them. The compounds are partitioned based on their year of first report in the literature, which allows framework occurrence frequencies to be compared across a 10-year interval. The results are consistent with a process in which frameworks with the greatest frequency of use in the past are the most likely to be used again, but it is also found that the frequency ordering changes over time. These fluctuations in ordering are attributed to stochastic factors, scientific and economic, that can affect how chemical space is explored. Framework diversity is found to have increased over time despite the extensive reuse of a relatively small number of frameworks; this increase is due to the large number of new frameworks. The long tail of the framework distribution, composed of frameworks that occur in few compounds or only one compound, is found to be a large and growing part of framework space.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Organic chemistry methodology that mimics the modular nature of various biosynthetic processes. It uses highly reliable and selective reactions designed to "click" i.e., rapidly join small modular units together in high yield, without offensive byproducts. In combination with COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES, it is used for the synthesis of new compounds and combinatorial libraries.

The conformation, properties, reaction processes, and the properties of the reactions of carbon compounds.

The reactions, changes in structure and composition, the properties of the reactions of carbon compounds, and the associated energy changes.

The phenomenon of immense variability characteristic of ANTIBODIES. It enables the IMMUNE SYSTEM to react specifically against the essentially unlimited kinds of ANTIGENS it encounters. Antibody diversity is accounted for by three main theories: (1) the Germ Line Theory, which holds that each antibody-producing cell has genes coding for all possible antibody specificities, but expresses only the one stimulated by antigen; (2) the Somatic Mutation Theory, which holds that antibody-producing cells contain only a few genes, which produce antibody diversity by mutation; and (3) the Gene Rearrangement Theory, which holds that antibody diversity is generated by the rearrangement of IMMUNOGLOBULIN VARIABLE REGION gene segments during the differentiation of the ANTIBODY-PRODUCING CELLS.
