    Protein kinase CK2 (CK2) is a target protein for the development of therapeutic drugs for cancer, nephritis, COVID-19 infection, etc. We have previously identified new candidate CK2α inhibitors containing a purine scaffold using the SDO-VS method. Docking calculations suggest that compound 11 binds CK2 eliminating the water molecule observed in many CK2-CK2 inhibitor complex crystal structures, as evidenced by X-ray crystallography results. Compound 12, which was designed from structure-activity relationship data, showed an IC50 of 4.3 μM.

    Casein kinase 2 (CK2) is a vital protein kinase that consists of two catalytic subunits (CK2α1 and/or CK2α2) and two regulatory subunits (CK2β). CK2α1 is a drug target for nephritis and cancers, while CK2α2 is a serious off-target because its inhibition causes testicular toxicity. High similarity between the isozymes CK2α1 and CK2α2 make it difficult to design CK2α1-specific inhibitors. Herein, the crystal structures of CK2α1 and CK2α2 complexed with a 3-amino-pyrazole inhibitor revealed the remarkable differences in the protein-inhibitor interaction modes. This inhibitor bound to the ATP binding sites of both isozymes in apparently distinct orientations. In addition, another molecule of this inhibitor bound to CK2α1, but not to CK2α2, at the CK2β protein-protein interface. Binding energy calculations and biochemical experiments suggested that this inhibitor possesses the conventional ATP-competitive characteristics with moderate allosteric function in a molecular glue mechanism. These results will assist the potential design of potent and selective CK2α1 inhibitors.

    Cyanide is highly toxic to humans and the environment. It is very important to develop an on-site system for the quantitative analysis of cyanide with high sensitivity and reliability. In this study, we developed a cyanide detection system based on the reaction of vaporized cyanide on a glass-fiber filter soaked in a mixture of naphthalene-2,3-dicarboxaldehyde (NDA)-taurine-borate solution. Although the reaction product was stable for at least 3 days at room temperature, the reaction product on the strip was quickly quenched within a few minutes by direct irradiation with 405 nm light. To overcome this problem, we fabricated a simple device designed to detect the fluorescence intensity immediately after inserting a reaction strip into the device. The linearity of the calibration was obtained over a range of 1-100 µM of cyanide with good repeatability. The device is cost-effective (~ $300) and powered by batteries; therefore, it is suitable for the on-site determination of cyanide in crude samples.

    A fragment-based lead discovery approach was applied to Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Kinases (PDHKs) to discover inhibitors against the ATP binding site with novel chemotypes. X-ray fragment screening toward PDHK4 provided a fragment hit 1 with a characteristic interaction in a deep pocket of the ATP binding site. While known inhibitors utilize several water molecules in a deep pocket to form water-mediated hydrogen bond interactions, the fragment hit binds deeper in the pocket with a hydrophobic group. Displacement of a remaining water molecule in the pocket led to the identification of lead compound 7 with a notable improvement in inhibition potency. This lead compound possessed high ligand efficiency (LE) and showed decent selectivity profile. Two additional lead compounds 10 and 13 with new scaffolds with tricyclic and bicyclic cores were generated by merging structural information of another fragment hit 2. The characteristic interaction of these novel inhibitors in a deep pocket provides new structural insights about PDHKs ATP binding site and opens a novel direction for the development of PDHKs inhibitors.

    Four chain-extended analogs (12a-12d) and two related de-O-sulfonated analogs (13a and 13c) by introducing alkyl groups (a: R = C3H7, b R = C6H13, c: R = C8H17, d: R = C10H21) to the side chains of salacinol (1), a natural α-glucosidase inhibitor from Ayurvedic traditional medicine "Salacia", were synthesized. The α-glucosidase inhibitory activities of all the synthesized analogs were evaluated in vitro. Against human intestinal maltase, the inhibitory activities of 12a and 13a with seven-carbon side chain were equal to that of 1. In contrast, analogs (12b-12d, and 13c) exhibited higher level of inhibitory activity against the same enzyme than 1 and had equal or higher potency than those of the clinically used anti-diabetics, voglibose, acarbose, and miglitol. Thus, elongation of the side chains of 1 was effective for specifically increasing the inhibitory activity against human intestinal maltase.

    The gatekeeping adenylation (A) domain of the non-ribosomal peptide synthetase (NRPS) selectively incorporates specific proteinogenic/non-proteinogenic amino acid into a growing peptide chain. The EntE of the enterobactin NRPS is a discrete aryl acid A-domain with 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHB) substrate specificity. Reprogrammed EntE N235G variant possesses an enlarged substrate recognition site, and is capable of accepting non-native aryl acids. Biochemical characterization of this unique substrate recognition site should provide a better understanding of activi-site microenvironments. Here, we synthesized a non-hydrolysable adenylate analogue with 2-aminobenzoic acid (2-ABA), 3-aminobenzoic acid (3-ABA), and 4-aminobenzoic acid (4-ABA) and used them to calculate the apparent inhibition constants (Kiapp.). Dose-response experiments using 3-ABA-sulfamoyladenosine (AMS) provided Kiapp. values of 596 nM for wild-type EntE and 2.4 nM for the N235G variants. These results suggest that 3-amino group of benzoic acid plays an important role in substrate recognition by the N235G variant. These findings would help designing aryl acid substrates with substituents at the 2- and 3-positions.

    A new indirect chemosensor for the detection of cyanide in blood is developed. 2-(5-Bromo-2-pyridylazo)-5-[N-n-propyl-N-(3-sulfopropyl)amino]phenol, a yellow dye, forms a blue-coloured complex with palladium ions. The yellow colour of this complex is regained upon reaction with cyanide ions. The complex shows high selectivity for the detection of cyanide over 16 other anions. The system was applied to two different methods for the detection of cyanide in human whole blood. As a quantitative absorbance method, blood samples were mixed with acid, and the resulting vaporised hydrogen cyanide was absorbed in an alkaline solution containing the complex in a Conway cell. The resulting absorbance response of the solution at 450 nm is linear over the range 4-40 μM (R2 = 1.000), and the limit of detection is 0.6 μM. Furthermore, the complex-soaked paper is applicable as a test strip for cyanide detection. When a test strip is used with 0.5 mL of blood, the limit of detection is 15 μM. The detection limits of these two methods are below the toxic blood cyanide concentration (19 μM). Therefore, both methods allow the quantification and screening of cyanide in blood samples. Furthermore, the test strip is low cost and enables on-site analysis.

    Casein kinase 2 catalytic subunit (CK2α) is classified into two subtypes CK2α1 and CK2α2. CK2α1 is a drug discovery target, whereas CK2α2 is an off-target of CK2α1 inhibitors. High amino acid sequence homology between these subtypes hampers efforts to produce ATP competitive inhibitors that are highly selective to CK2α1. Hematein was identified previously as a non-ATP-competitive inhibitor for CK2α1, whereas this compound acts as an ATP competitive CK2α2 inhibitor. Crystal structures of CK2α1 and CK2α2 in complex with hematein revealed distinct binding features that provide structural insights for producing CK2α1-selective inhibitors.

    Aryl acids are most commonly found in iron-scavenging siderophores but are not limited to them. The nonribosomal peptide synthetase (NRPS) codes of aryl acids remain poorly elucidated relative to those of amino acids. Here, we defined more precisely the role of active-site residues in aryl acid adenylation domains (A-domains) by gradually grafting the NRPS codes used for salicylic acid (Sal) into an archetypal aryl acid A-domain, EntE [specific for the substrate 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHB)]. Enzyme kinetics and modeling studies of these EntE variants demonstrated that the NRPS code residues at positions 236, 240, and 339 collectively regulate the substrate specificity toward DHB and Sal. Furthermore, the EntE variants exhibited the ability to activate the non-native aryl acids 3-hydroxybenzoic acid, 3-aminobenzoic acid, 3-fluorobenzoic acid, and 3-chlorobenzoic acid. These studies enhance our knowledge of the NRPS codes of aryl acids and could be exploited to reprogram aryl acid A-domains for non-native aryl acids.

    © 2019 International Union of Crystallography. Protein kinase CK2a1 is a serine/threonine kinase that plays a crucial role in the growth, proliferation and survival of cells and is a well known target for tumour and glomerulonephritis therapies. Here, the crystal structure of the kinase domain of CK2a1 complexed with 5-iodotubercidin (5IOD), an ATP-mimetic inhibitor, was determined at 1.78 Å resolution. The structure shows distinct structural features and, in combination with a comparison of the crystal structures of five off-target kinases complexed with 5IOD, provides valuable information for the development of highly selective inhibitors.

    Adenylation (A) domains act as the gatekeepers of non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPSs), ensuring the activation and thioesterification of the correct amino acid/aryl acid building blocks. Aryl acid building blocks are most commonly observed in iron-chelating siderophores, but are not limited to them. Very little is known about the reprogramming of aryl acid A-domains. We show that a single asparagine-to-glycine mutation in an aryl acid A-domain leads to an enzyme that tolerates a wide range of non-native aryl acids. The engineered catalyst is capable of activating non-native aryl acids functionalized with nitro, cyano, bromo, and iodo groups, even though no enzymatic activity of wild-type enzyme was observed toward these substrates. Co-crystal structures with non-hydrolysable aryl-AMP analogues revealed the origins of this expansion of substrate promiscuity, highlighting an enlargement of the substrate binding pocket of the enzyme. Our findings may be exploited to produce diversified aryl acid containing natural products and serve as a template for further directed evolution in combinatorial biosynthesis.

    Hydroxychavicol (HC), which is obtained from the leaves of Piper betle LINN. (Piperaceae), inhibits xanthine oxidase (XO) with an IC50 value of 16.7 µM, making it more potent than the clinically used allopurinol (IC50=30.7 µM). Herein, a structure-activity relationship analysis of the polar part analogs of HC was conducted and an inhibitor was discovered with a potency 13 times that of HC. Kinetic studies have revealed that HC and its active analog inhibit XO in an uncompetitive manner. The binding structure prediction of these inhibitor molecules to the XO complex with xanthine suggested that both compounds (HC and its analog) could simultaneously form hydrogen bonds with xanthine and XO.

    Solvent dipole ordering virtual screening (SDO-VS) is a virtual screening method that focuses on the shape of the SDO region at the binding site of the protein. In SDO-VS, pseudo molecules (PMs) are generated to reproduce the shape of the SDO region. Compounds that have shapes (or volumes) similar to those of the PMs are then screened from a 3D structure database. The original implementation of SDO-VS involved PMs with only sp3-hybridized carbon atoms. However, utilization of sp2- and sp-hybridized atoms and/or small molecular fragments, in addition to sp3-hybridized atoms, is expected to provide more efficient screening. To this end, this study investigated the effect of sp3-, sp2-, and sp-hybridized atoms and phenyl rings as fragments for PM generation in the SDO-VS method. The screening efficiencies were compared with the original method for several drug target proteins. Overall, this new method improved screening efficiencies, as measured by the area under the curve of the corresponding receiver operating characteristic plots.

    In peptide vaccine therapy, a peptide with high affinity for human leukocyte antigen (HLA), is important to stimulate the immune system to kill cancer cells. Several methods to predict HLA–peptide binding have been reported, but most of them rely on informatics to analyze the amino acid sequence of the peptide. Although intermolecular-interaction-based analysis is expected to improve prediction accuracy, such a method generally involves a high computational cost. Therefore, comparative binding energy (COMBINE) analysis, a 3D-quantitative structure–activity relationship method, combined with a rapidly implemented protein modeling method, was applied to solve this problem. The new method enabled quick evaluation of peptide affinity predictions with accuracy beyond a statistical method. In addition, several amino acid residues of HLA, which are known to be important for peptide binding, could be identified.

    We recently reported that 4-epi-jaspine B exhibits potent inhibitory activity towards sphingosine kinases (SphKs). In this study, we investigated the effects of modifying the 2-alkyl group, as well as the functional groups on the THE ring of 4-epi-jaspine B using a diversity-oriented synthesis approach based on a late stage cross metathesis reaction. The introduction of a p-phenylene tether to the alkyl group was favored in most cases, whereas the replacement of a carbon atom with an oxygen atom led to a decrease in the inhibitory activity. Furthermore, the introduction of a bulky alkyl group at the terminus led to a slight increase in the inhibitory activity of this series towards SphKs compared with 4-epi-jaspine B (the Q values of compound 13 for SphK1 and SphK2 were 0.2 and 0.4, respectively). Based on this study, we identified two isoform selective inhibitors, including the m-phenylene derivative 4 [IC50 (SphK1) >= 30 mu M; IC50 (SphK2) = 2.2 mu M] and the methyl ether derivative 22 [IC50 (SphK1) = 4.0 mu M; IC50 (SphK2) >= 30 mu m].

    Sialyl LewisX (sLeX) is a natural ligand of E-selectin that is overexpressed by inflamed and tumor endothelium. Although sLeX is a potential ligand for drug targeting, synthesis of the tetrasaccharide is complicated with many reaction steps. In this study, structurally simplified novel sLeX analogues were designed and linked with 1,2-distearoylsn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine-polyethylene glycol-2000 (DSPE-PEG) for E-selectin-mediated liposomal delivery. The sLeX structural simplification strategies include (1) replacement of the Gal-G1cNAc disaccharide unit with lactose to reduce many initial steps and (2) substitution of neuraminic acid with a negatively charged group, i.e., 3'-sulfo, 3'-carboxymethyl (3'-CM), or 3'-(1-carboxy)ethyl (3'-CE). While all the liposomes developed were similar in particle size and charge, the 3'-CE sLeX mimic liposome demonstrated the highest uptake in inflammatory cytokine-treated human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs), being even more potent than native sLeX-decorated liposomes. Inhibition studies using antiselectin antibodies revealed that their uptake was mediated primarily by overexpressed E-sdectin on inflamed HUVECs. Molecular dynamics simulations were performed to gain mechanistic insight into the E-selectin binding differences among native and mimic sLeX. The terminally branched methyl group of the 3'-CE sLeX mimic oriented and faced the bulk hydrophilic solution during. E-selectin binding. Since this state is entropically unfavorable, the 3'-CE sLeX mimic molecule might be pushed toward the binding, pocket of E-selectin by a hydrophobic effect, leading to a higher probability of hydrogen-bond' formation than native sLeX and the 3'-CM sLeX mimic. This corresponded with the fact that the 3'-CE sLeX mimic liposome exhibited much greater uptake than the 3'-CM sLeX mimic liposome.

    Using an in silico method, seven analogs bearing hydrophobic substituents (8a: Me, 8b: Et, 8c: n-Pent, 8d: n-Hept, 8e: n-Tridec, 8f: isoBu and 8g: neoPent) at the 3'-O-position in salacinol (1), a highly potent natural alpha-glucosidase inhibitor from Ayurvedic traditional medicine 'Salacia', were designed and synthesized. In order to verify the computational SAR assessments, their alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activities were evaluated in vitro. All analogs (8a-8g) exhibited an equal or considerably higher level of inhibitory activity against rat small intestinal alpha-glucosidases compared with the original sulfonate (1), and were as potent as or higher in potency than the clinically used anti-diabetics, voglibose, acarbose or miglitol. Their activities against human maltase exhibited good relationships to the results obtained with enzymes of rat origin. Among the designed compounds, the one with a 3'-O-neopentyl moiety (8g) was most potent, with an approximately ten fold increase in activity against human maltase compared to 1.

    Two classes of modified analogs of 4-(thiazol-5-yl)benzoic acid-type CK2 inhibitors were designed. The azabenzene analogs, pyridine-and pyridazine-carboxylic acid derivatives, showed potent protein kinase CK2 inhibitory activities [IC50 (CK2 alpha) = 0.014-0.017 mu M; IC50 (CK2 alpha') = 0.0046-0.010 mu M]. Introduction of a 2-halo- or 2-methoxy-benzyloxy group at the 3-position of the benzoic acid moiety maintained the potent CK2 inhibitory activities [IC50 (CK2 alpha) = 0.014-0.016 mu M; IC50 (CK2 alpha') = 0.0088-0.014 mu M] and led to antiproliferative activities [CC50 (A549) = 1.5-3.3 mu M] three to six times higher than those of the parent compound.

    Novel protein kinase CK2 inhibitors were identified using the solvent dipole ordering virtual screening method. A total of 26 compounds categorized in 15 distinct scaffold classes inhibited greater than 50% of enzyme activity at 50 mu M, and eight exhibited IC50 values less than 10 mu M. Most of the identified compounds are lead-like and dissimilar to known inhibitors. The crystal structures of two of the CK2 complexes revealed the high accuracy of the predicted binding modes.

    CONSPECTUS: Chemists routinely work with complex molecular systems: solutions, biochemical molecules, and amorphous and composite materials provide some typical examples. The questions one often asks are what are the driving forces for a chemical phenomenon? How reasonable are our views of chemical systems in terms of subunits, such as functional groups and individual molecules? How can one quantify the difference in physicochemical properties of functional units found in a different chemical environment? Are various effects on functional units in molecular systems additive? Can they be represented by pairwise potentials? Are there effects that cannot be represented in a simple picture of pairwise interactions? How can we obtain quantitative values for these effects? Many of these questions can be formulated in the language of many-body effects. They quantify the properties of subunits (fragments), referred to as one-body properties, pairwise interactions (two-body properties), couplings of two-body interactions described by three-body properties, and so on. By introducing the notion of fragments in the framework of quantum chemistry, one obtains two immense benefits: (a) chemists can finally relate to quantum chemistry, which now speaks their language, by discussing chemically interesting subunits and their interactions and (b) calculations become much faster due to a reduced computational scaling. For instance, the somewhat academic sounding question of the importance of three-body effects in water clusters is actually another way of asking how two hydrogen bonds affect each other, when they involve three water molecules. One aspect of this is the many-body charge transfer (CT), because the charge transfers in the two hydrogen bonds are coupled to each other (not independent). In this work, we provide a generalized view on the use of many-body expansions in fragment-based methods, focusing on the general aspects of the property expansion and a contraction of a many-body expansion in a formally two-body series, as exemplified in the development of the fragment molecular orbital (FMO) method. Fragment-based methods have been very successful in delivering the properties of fragments, as well as the fragment interactions, providing insights into complex chemical processes in large molecular systems. We briefly review geometry optimizations performed with fragment-based methods and present an efficient geometry optimization method based on the combination of FMO with molecular mechanics (MM), applied to the complex of a subunit of protein kinase 2 (CK2) with a ligand.

    Structure-activity relationship studies of diaryl amine-type KSP inhibitors were carried out. Diaryl amine derivatives with a pyridine ring or urea group were less active when compared with the parent carboline and carbazole derivatives. Optimization studies of a lactam-fused diphenylamine-type KSP inhibitor revealed that the aniline NH group and 3-CF3 phenyl group were indispensable for potent KSP inhibition. Modification with a seven-membered lactam-fused phenyl group and a 4-(trifluoromethyl)pyridin-2-yl group improved aqueous solubility while maintaining potent KSP inhibitory activity. From these studies, we identified novel diaryl amine-type KSP inhibitors with a favorable balance of potency and solubility. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Diaryl amine derivatives have been designed and synthesized as novel kinesin spindle protein (KSP) inhibitors based on planar carbazole-type KSP inhibitors with poor aqueous solubility. The new generation of inhibitors was found to show comparable inhibitory activity and high selectivity for KSP, and this was accompanied with improved solubility. Kinetic analysis and molecular modeling studies suggested that these inhibitors work in an ATP-competitive manner via binding to the secondary allosteric site formed by alpha 4 and alpha 6 helices of KSP. Comparative structural investigations on a series of compounds revealed that the higher solubility of diaryl amine-type inhibitors was attributed to fewer van der Waals interactions in the crystal packing and the hydrogen-bond acceptor nitrogen of the aniline moiety for favorable solvation.

    A putative 7-dimethylallyl tryptophan synthase (DMATS) gene from a fungal Neosartorya sp. was cloned and overexpressed as a soluble His(6)-fusion protein in Escherichia coli. The enzyme was found to catalyze the prenylation of L-tryptophan at the C7 position of the indole moiety in the presence of dimethylallyl diphosphate; thus, it functions as a 7-DMATS. In this study, we describe the biochemical characterization of 7-DMATS from Neosartorya sp., referred to as 7-DMATS(Neo), and the structural basis of the regioselective prenylation of L-tryptophan at the C7 position by comparison of the three-dimensional structural models of 7-DMATS(Neo) with FgaPT2 (4-DMATS) from Aspergillus fumigatus.

    The Ser/Thr kinase CK2 consists of two catalytic subunits (CK2 alpha) and a dimer of the regulatory subunits (CK2 beta), and is a ubiquitous enzyme that regulates growth, proliferation and the survival of cells. CK2 is a remarkable drug target for potentially treating a wide variety of tumours and glomerulonephritis. The purified CK2 alpha protein was crystallized using ethylene glycol as a precipitant. The crystal structure of CK2 alpha with 21 loci of alternative conformations, including a niacin, 19 ethylene glycols and 346 waters, was determined at 1.06 angstrom resolution to an R-work of 14.0% (R-free = 16.5%). The alternative ensemble in the internal hydrophobic core underpins the plasticity of the alpha D-helix responsible for the regulation of ATP/GTP binding. The clear density map indicates that a niacin molecule, contained in the Escherichia coli culture medium, binds to the ATP binding site. An ethylene glycol molecule binds in the hydrophobic pocket lateral to the alpha D-helix forming the rim of the active site. The other ethylene glycol molecules occupy physiologically significant sites, including the CK2 beta binding interface and substrate binding site, as well as the gap in the crystal packing. Together with water molecules in the active site, these structural insights should facilitate drug discovery.

    Pyrazolo[4,3-b]indole derivatives have been designed as novel CK2 inhibitor compounds based on the binding mode analysis of a previously reported phenylpyrazole-type CK2 inhibitor. A series of pyrazolo[ 4,3-b]indoles and related dihydropyrazolo[4,3-b]indoles were efficiently prepared from simple starting materials using a gold-catalysed three-component annulation reaction as a key step. Several of the newly synthesized compounds displayed high levels of inhibitory activity, indicating that the pyrazolo[4,3-b]indole core represents a promising scaffold for the development of potent CK2 inhibitors.

    To examine the role of the side chain of kotalanol (2), a potent natural alpha-glucosidase inhibitor isolated from Salacia reticulata, on inhibitory activity, four diastereomers (11a-11d) with reversed configuration (S) at the C-4' position in the side chain were synthesized and evaluated. Two of the four (11b and 11d) significantly lost their inhibitory activity against both maltase and sucrase, while the other two (11a and 11c) sustained the inhibitory activity to a considerable extent, showing distinct activity in response to the change of stereochemistry of the hydroxyls at the 5' and 6' positions. Different activities were rationalized with reference to in silico docking studies on these inhibitors with hNtMGAM. Against isomaltase, all four analogs showed potent inhibitory activity as well as 2, and 11b and 11d exhibited enzyme selectivity. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    We propose an approach based on the overlapping multicenter ONIOM to evaluate intermolecular interaction energies in large systems and demonstrate its accuracy on several representative systems in the complete basis set limit at the MP2 and CCSD(T) level of theory. In the application to the intermolecular interaction energy between insulin dimer and 4'-hydroxyacetanilide at the MP2/CBS level, we use the fragment molecular orbital method for the calculation of the entire complex assigned to the lowest layer in three-layer ONIOM. The developed method is shown to be efficient and accurate in the evaluation of the protein-ligand interaction energies.

    Tetrahydroquinolines (THQs), a new class of nonsteroidal selective androgen receptor (AR) modulators, have two indispensable functional groups, that is, a hydroxyl group for AR binding and a nitro group for agonistic. activity. Interestingly, switching the nitro to a cyano group, the compound :acts as an antagonist To understand this phenomenon, molecular dynamics simulations were applied for dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and representative THQs complexes with AR. Upon ligand binding, the hydroxyl group formed a tight hydrogen bond (H-bond) with Asn705 on Helix 3, (H3). The immobilization of Asn705 on H3 is helpful in the formation Of tight H-bonds with Asp890 on loop 11-12, and this immobilization consequently leads to a stabilization of H12. The difference in the DHT carbonyl isosteres affected the presence or absence of the H-bonds between the hydroxyl group of THQ and Thr877 and the distortion of H12, which is caused by the methyl group of THQ Thus, the binding, agonist, and antagonist functions were controlled by subtle structural changes in THQ,

    Protein kinase CK2 (CK2) is a ubiquitous serine/threonine protein kinase for hundreds of endogenous substrates. CK2 has been considered to be involved in many diseases, including cancers. Herein we report the discovery of a novel ATP-competitive CK2 inhibitor. Virtual screening of a compound library led to the identification of a hit 2-phenyl-1,3,4-thiadiazole compound. Subsequent structural optimization resulted in the identification of a promising 4-(thiazol-5-yl)benzoic acid derivative.

    To develop more potent α-glucosidase inhibitors whose seed-compound is salacinol (1), a potent natural α-glucosidase inhibitor isolated from Salacia reticulata of Ayurvedic traditional medicine, a series of 3'-O-benzylated analogs of 1 were designed with the aid of in silico method. Intensive docking studies proposed several promising compounds. To verify the computational SAR assessments, designed derivatives were synthesized and evaluated in vitro. Their α-glucosidase inhibitory activities against rat intestinal α-glucosidases were so potent as were expected by the docking studies, and all the compounds showed superior inhibitory activities to the original sulfonium sulfate (1). Among the sulfonium salts designed, one with 3'-O-(ortho-nitrobenzyl) moiety (8k) was found to be the most potent, and ca. forty times as potent as 1, the compound being the strongest inhibitor among the sulfonium type inhibitors synthesized so far.

    The detailed understanding of the molecular features of a ligand binding to a target protein, facilitates the successful design of potent and selective inhibitors. We present a case study of ATP-competitive kinase inhibitors that include a pyradine moiety. These compounds have similar chemical structure, except for distinct terminal hydrophobic cyclopentyl or isopropyl groups, and block kinase activity of casein kinase 2 subunit alpha (CK2 alpha), which is a target for several diseases, such as cancer and glomerulonephritis. Although these compounds display similar inhibitory potency against CK2 alpha, the crystal structures reveal that the cyclopentyl derivative gains more favorable interactions compared with the isopropyl derivative, because of the additional ethylene moiety. The structural observations and biological data are consistent with the thermodynamic profiles of these inhibitors in binding to CK2 alpha, revealing that the enthalpic advantage of the cyclopentyl derivative is accompanied with a lower entropic loss. Computational analyses indicated that the relative enthalpic gain of the cyclopentyl derivative arises from an enhancement of a wide range of van der Waals interactions from the whole complex. Conversely, the relative entropy loss of the cyclopentyl derivative arises from a decrease in the molecular fluctuation and higher conformational restriction in the active site of CK2 alpha. These structural insights, in combination with thermodynamic and computational observations, should be helpful in developing potent and selective CK2 alpha inhibitors.

    Casein kinase II (CK2), a serine-threonine protein kinase, is distributed ubiquitously in human body. It exists as a tetramer composed of two catalytic subunits (α and α') and two control subunits (β). Amino acid sequence homology between the catalytic subunit α and α' is very high, 83%. Inhibitors of this enzyme have been explored for cancer, virus infection and glomerulonephritis therapies, and several highly potent compounds have been reported as ATP competitive inhibitors. On the other hand, hematein, a natural compound isolated from Caesalpinia sappan, inhibits CK2α in an ATP uncompetitive manner, whereas it inhibits CK2α' in a competitive manner. We have investigated the binding mode of hematein to both isozymes using docking studies followed by the binding energy analysis with the MM/PBSA method and the simulated annealing simulation. The results suggested that hematein could bind to the ATP binding site of the both isozymes. In addition, it might bind to the allosteric site and the substrate binding site of CK2α.

    Binding free energy ΔGbind of a ligand to the target protein is a physicochemical quantity which closely relates to a drug activity, and prediction of ΔGbind with accuracy leads to an efficient drug design. As a method to calculate ΔΔGbind, difference of ΔGbind between two ligands, FEP (free energy perturbation) and TI (thermodynamic integration) methods are well known. Theoretically, application of these methods are limited to the system where an energy difference is small, ~2 kcal/mol. Recently, Jorgensen et al. have applied these methods to a lead optimization study of HIV reverse transcriptase inhibitors, and succeeded in obtaining a qualitative relationship between the predicted and experimental values. However, it is desirable to establish an appropriate calculation procedure of these methods which reproduces experimental ΔΔGbind quantitatively. In this study, we applied the FEP/TI methods to the FXa (activated blood coagulation factor X) inhibitors, where one hydrogen atom on an inhibitor molecule was replaced with a chlorine atom. Several calculation procedures have been tested.

    We previously reported that solvent dipole ordering (SDO) at the ligand binding site of a protein indicates an outline of the preferred shape and binding pose of the ligands. We suggested that SDO-mimetic pseudo-molecules that mimic the 3D shape of the SDO region could be used as molecular queries with a shape similarity matching method in virtual screening. In this work, a virtual screening method based on SDO, named SDOVS, was proposed. This method was applied to virtual screening of ligands for four typical drug target proteins and the performance compared with that of FRED (well-known rigid docking method); the efficiency of SDOVS was demonstrated to be better than FRED.

    Salacinol is a potent alpha-glucosidase inhibitor isolated from Salacia reticulata, and a good lead compound for an antidiabetic drug. It is essential to clarify the binding state of salacinol to alpha-glucosidase for efficient optimization study using structure-based drug design. Redocking simulations of two inhibitors, acarbose and casuarine whose complex structures are known, were performed to assure the appropriate docking pose prediction. The simulation reproduced both experimental binding states with accuracy. Then, using the same simulation protocol, the binding mode of salacinol and its derivatives has been predicted. Salacinol bound to the protein with a similar binding mode as casuarine, and the predicted structures could explain most of the structure-activity relationships of salacinol derivatives.

    Solvent dipole ordering (SDO), introduced by Higo et al. (Proteins Struct Funct Genet 2000, 40, 193), is an entity that captures an aspect of hydration structure. We have studied SDO in the ligand binding site of two proteins (FK506 binding protein and dihydrofolate reductase) and found that the high SDO regions overlap significantly with the 3D structures of known inhibitors bound to the proteins. Thus, the SDO region might be used to predict the preferred molecular shape of ligands that bind to a protein. Based on this finding, we propose a novel docking procedure using model molecules that mimic the shape of the SDO region. To prove the validity of this approach, we performed a redocking experiment for p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase ligands using model molecules for search queries; we Succeeded in identifying the binding conformations and binding modes of known inhibitors.

    High-level ab initio calculations have been carried out using a formamide-benzene model system to evaluate amide-n interactions. The interaction energies were estimated as a sum of the CCSD(T) correlation contribution and the HF energy at the complete basis set limit, for the geometries of the model structures in the energy minimum obtained by potential energy surface (PES) scans. NH/pi geometry in it face-on Configuration Was found to be the most attractive among the various geometries considered, with interaction energy of -3.75 kcal/mol. An interaction energy of -2.08 kcal/mol was calculated for the stacked N/Center type geometry, where the nitrogen atom of formamide points directly toward the center of the aromatic ring. The weakest C=O/pi geometry. where a carbonyl oxygen atom points toward the plane of the aromatic ring, was found to have energy minimum at,in intermolecular distance of 3.67 angstrom from the PES, with a repulsive interaction energy less than 1 kcal/mol. However. if there are simultaneous attractive interactions with other parts of the molecule besides the amide group, the weak repulsion Could be easily overcome, to give a C=O/pi geometry interaction.

The interaction energies were estimated as a sum of the CCSD(T) correlation contribution and the Hartree-Fock energy at the complete basis set limit, for the geometries of the benzene-chlorohydrocarbon model structures at the energy minimum obtained by potential energy surface scans using RMP2(FC)/cc-pVTZ. The calculated Cl-pi interaction energy was -2.01 kcal/mol, and the dispersion force was found to be the major source of attraction. We also discuss the geometry flexibility in Cl-pi interactions.

    The binding affinity of an inhibitor is often improved ten times or more by introducing a simple substituent, such as a methyl group or a chlorine atom. We have investigated this phenomenon in the case of adenosine deaminase (ADA) inhibitors using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and binding free energy calculations, by the linear interaction energy (LIE) method. For MD simulations, the coordination bond parameters and partial charges of atoms around the zinc ion in ADA have been determined by referring to ab initio MO calculations. The calculated binding free energies for seven inhibitors agreed well with the experimental ones, with a maximum error of 1.2 kcal/mol. The effect of methyl substitution in inhibitor molecules was examined on the basis of MD trajectories. It is suggested that the increase in binding affinity is caused by both van der Waals stabilizations by amino acid residues in contact with the introduced methyl group and through favored overall interactions with surrounding residues in the binding pocket.

    Casein kinase 2 (CK2) is a serine/threonine kinase that functions as a heterotetramer composed of two catalytic subunits (CK2 alpha 1 or CK2 alpha 2) and two regulatory subunits (CK2 beta). The two isozymes CK2 alpha 1 and CK2 alpha 2 play distinguishable roles in healthy subjects and in patients with diseases such as cancer, respectively. In order to develop novel CK2 alpha 1-selective inhibitors, the crystal structure of human CK2 alpha 2 (hCK2 alpha 2) complexed with a potent CK2 alpha inhibitor which binds to the active site of hCK2 alpha 2 was determined and compared with that of human CK2 alpha 1. While the two isozymes exhibited a high similarity with regard to the active site, the largest structural difference between the isoforms occurred in the beta 4-beta 5 loop responsible for the CK2 alpha-CK2 beta interface. The top of the N-terminal segment interacted with the beta 4-beta 5 loop via a hydrogen bond in hCK2 alpha 2 but not in hCK2 alpha 1. Thus, the CK2 alpha-CK2 beta interface is a likely target candidate for the production of selective CK2 alpha 1 inhibitors.

    We present a new model for predicting the binding affinity in protein-ligand complexes based on an explicit solvent treatment. The model is referred to as the cluster hydration model. Test calculations were performed on complexes of FK506-binding protein (FKBP) and its six ligands. The calculated binding energies had a good correlation with experimental binding affinities; the correlation coefficient r(2) was 0.93. Moreover, we examined the competition between the residue-ligand interactions and the desolvation energies of residues. The results suggested that, for the stabilization of the complexes in solution, the contributions of nonpolar residues at the binding site are larger than those of charged and polar ones because the electrostatic interaction energies between the residues and the ligand were mostly canceled by the desolvation penalties.

    Adenosine deaminase (ADA) perpetuates chronic inflammation by degrading extracellular adenosine which is toxic for lymphocytes. ADA has two distinct conformations: open form and closed form. From the crystal structures with various ligands, the non-nucleoside type inhibitors bind to the active site occupying the critical water-binding-position and sustain the open form of apo-ADA. In contrast, substrate mimics do not occupy the critical position, and induce the large conformational change to the closed form. However, it is difficult to predict the binding of (+)-erythro-9-(2-hydroxy-3-nonyl)adenine (EHNA), as it possesses characteristic parts of both the substrate and the non-nucleoside inhibitors. The crystal structure shows that EHNA binds to the open form through a novel recognition of the adenine base accompanying conformational change from the closed form of the PR-ADA complex in crystalline state.

    During systematic analysis of nonbonded contacts in protein-ligand complexes derived from crystal structures in the Protein Data Bank, Cl-pi interactions have been found, not only in the well-documented serine proteases but also, to a lesser extent, in other proteins. From geometric analysis of such Cl-pi interactions in the crystal structures, two distinct geometries were found: the "edge-on'' approach of a Cl atom to a ring atom or C-C bond and the "face-on'' approach toward the ring centroid with an average interatomic distance of 3.6 angstrom. High-level ab initio calculations using benzene-chlorohydro-carbon model systems elucidated that the calculated Cl-pi interaction energy is -2.01 kcal/mol, and the dispersion force is the major source of attraction. We also discussed the geometric flexibility in Cl-pi interactions and a relationship between the intensity of the pi density in an aromatic ring and the interaction position of the Cl atom.

    The fragment molecular orbital (FMO) method has enabled electronic structure calculations and geometry optimizations of very large molecules with ab initio quality. We applied the method to four FK506 binding protein (FKBP) complexes (denoted by their PDB codes 1fkb, 1fkf, 1fkg, and 1fki) containing rapamycin, FK506, and two synthetic ligands. The geometries of reduced complex models were optimized at the restricted Hartree-Fock (FMO-RHF) level using the 3-21G basis set, and then for a better estimate of binding, the energetics were refined at a higher level of theory (2nd order Moller-Plesset perturbation theory FMO-MP2 with the 6-31G* basis set). Thus, obtained binding energies were -103.9 (-82.0), -102.2 (-69.2), -70.1 (-57.7), and -71.3 (-55.3) kcal/mol for 1fkb, 1fkf, 1fkg, and 1fki, respectively, where the correlation contribution is given in parentheses. The results show that the electron correlation contribution to binding is extremely important, and it accounts for 70-80% of the binding energy. The molecular recognition mechanism of FKBP was analyzed in detail based on the FMO-pair interactions between protein residues and the ligands. Solvation effects on the protein-ligand binding were estimated using the Poisson-Boltzmann/surface area model.

    Structural snapshots corresponding to various states enable elucidation of the molecular recognition mechanism of enzymes. Adenosine deaminase has two distinct conformations, an open form and a closed form, although it has so far been unclear what factors influence adaptation of the alternative conformations. Herein, we have determined the first nonligated structure as an initial state, which was the open form, and have thereby rationally deduced the molecular recognition mechanism. Inspection of the active site in the nonligated and ligated states indicated that occupancy at one of the water-binding positions in the nonligated state was highly significant in determining alternate conformations. When this position is empty, subsequent movement of Phe65 toward the space induces the closed form. On the other hand, while occupied, the overall conformation remains in the open form. This structural understanding should greatly assist structure-oriented drug design and enable control of the enzymatic activity.

    We disclose herein the rapid discovery of the first highly potent (Ki = 7.7 nM) non-nucleoside adenosine deaminase (ADA) inhibitor based on the rational hybridization of two structurally distinct leads. Two micromolar inhibitors were discovered by a parallel rational design and random screening program, and individual crystal structures of bovine ADA in complexation with these inhibitors revealed several unknown binding sites and distinct binding modes. Using this information as the starting point, highly effective lead hybridization was achieved in only two structure-based drug design iterations. The conceptual approach illustrated by this example promises to be broadly useful in the search for new chemical entities and can contribute greatly to improve the overall efficiency and speed of drug discovery.

    The crystal structure of porcine pancreatic elastase (PPE) complexed with a potent peptidyl inhibitor, FR136706, was solved at 2.2 Å resolution. FR136706 fits snugly into the extended active site pocket. The benzene moiety of FR136706 induced dramatic movement of the side chain moiety of Arg217 and both moieties formed a π-π interaction, which has never been found previously in structures of PPE complexed with inhibitors. This novel interaction mode may lead to design of new types of inhibitors. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Human leukocyte elastase (HLE) is a serine protease that contributes to tissue destruction in various disease states-for example, in emphysema. FR901277 is a natural product isolated from the culture filtrate of Streptomyces resistomicificus and is a potent inhibitor of both HLE and porcine pancreatic elastase (PPE). FR901277 consists of four normal amino acids and three unusual amino acids, and is a unique bicyclic peptide compound. The crystal structure of PPE complexed with FR901277 has been determined at 1.6 Å resolution. The Oγ atom of Ser-195 in PPE did not form a covalent bond with FR901277, but formed a hydrogen bond with the Nε atom of His-57. On the other hand, the portion from L-Orn(1) through dehydroxyThr(3) in FR901277 formed an antiparallel β-sheet structure with the backbone of the active site in PPE. The S4 through S2' binding subsites in PPE were all occupied by the hydrophobic side chains of the inhibitor molecule. Especially, the ethylidene moiety of FR901277 occupied the S1 specific pocket, indicating a CH/π interaction. In addition, the isopropyl side chain of L-Val(7) was located at the enzyme surface between the S2 and S1' pockets with several van der Waals contacts. However, the amino acid (4) residue was not involved in a significant interaction with PPE. Comparison of inhibitor structures in different environments showed that FR901277 has a highly rigid bicyclic framework however, it can slightly change its conformation according to the circumstances. The binding mode of FR901277 at the active site of PPE was directly applicable to that in HLE, after consideration of induced fit. The structure of the PPE-FR901277 complex provided much information regarding potential sites for modification of the physicochemical properties of FR901277. (C) 2000 John Wiley and Sons, Inc.

    X-ray crystal structure analysis of FR901277, a novel inhibitor of human leukocyte elastase, was performed and revealed that the lipophilic side chains are located towards the outside of the molecule. Binding simulation using computational methods showed that these lipophilic moieties could bind to the hydrophobic binding pockets of HLE.

    A series of 1, 2, 3, 4-tetrahydroisoquinoline derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for anticonvulsant activity against intracerebro-ventriculas (i.c.v.) N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-induced seizures in mice. Among these compounds, (+)-1-methyl-1-phenyl-1, 2, 3, 4-tetrahydroisoquinoline hydrochloride ((+)-1a, FR115427) was the most effective anticonvulsant, and also protected CA1 hippocampal neurons from ischemia-induced neuronal degeneration in rats at 32 mg/kg i.p. In addition, (+)-1a showed anti-hypoxic activity in mice at 3.2-32 mg/kg i.p. The absolute configuration at the C-1 position of the isoquinoline ring was determined to be S by a single-crystal X-ray analysis of (+)-1a (+)-di-p-toluoyl-D-tartrate. Structure-activity relationships with regard to the anticonvulsant activity of this series of compounds are discussed, and the three-dimensional structures of (S)-(+)-1a and MK801 are compared.

    This article describes the synthesis of 4, 4-diphenyl-2-cycloalkenylamines (3, 5a) including FK584 (S(-)-3a) and 3, 3- or 4, 4-diphenylcycloalkylamines (2, 4, 5b), and their inhibitory activities against detrusor contraction. The order of inhibitory activity (i.v.) of the N-tert-butylamine derivatives against urinary bladder rhythmic contraction in rats was as follows : S(-)-4, 4-diphenyl-2-cyclopentenylamine (FK584, S(-)-3a)>4, 4-diphenylcyclohexylamine (5b)=R(-)-3, 3-diphenylcyclopentylamine (R(-)-4)≥3, 3-diphenylcyclobutylamine (2)≥terodiline hydrochloride (HCl)(1)=RS(±)-4, 4-diphenyl-2-cyclohexenylamine (5a)>R(+)-4, 4-diphenyl-2-cyclopentenylamine (R(+)-3a)≥S(+)-3, 3-diphenylcyclopentylamine (S(+)-4). Although the inhibitory activity of FK584 and compounds R(-)-4 and 5b against detrusor contraction in vitro induced with KCl in guinea-pigs was less potent than that of terodiline HCl, their inhibitory activities against detrusor contractions in vitro induced by electrical field stimulation and carbachol were more potent than those of terodiline HCl.

    計算機資源の向上と計算手法の発達により、従来では困難であった高精度な分子軌道計算による相互作用解析が、タンパク質−薬物複合体などの巨大分子系においても一般化しつつある。これらの知見は、構造に基づくドラッグデザインに大きな知見をもたらすと期待がされており、特に古典的な力場計算では考慮していなかった、CH-O相互作用やCl-pi相互作用などが結合に寄与することが重要視されてきている。巨大分子系の分子軌道計算は、近似計算の方のひとつであるフラグメント分子軌道法(FMO法)によって行われることが多い。FMO法の利点は、単純に計算時間が短縮できるという点だけではなく、リガンドと各アミノ酸残基との相互作用など通常の分子軌道計算では求めることが困難な要素を得ることが可能であり、それにより力場法で行っていたことに近い感覚で解析が可能であるという点が挙げられる。 すでにFMO法に関するインターフェースはABINIT-MPなどいくつか存在し

    【目的】新規に阻害剤を設計する際には、阻害剤の結合自由エネルギーを予測することが重要となる。本研究で用いたCK2阻害剤であるCC4791およびCC4820の結合自由エネルギーはほぼ同等であるが、小さな置換基変化(イソプロピル基とシクロペンチル基)にも関わらず、熱力学的プロファイル(エンタルピー・エントロピーの寄与度)が異なることが熱測定により観測されている。構造の差がどのような要因で熱力学的な差を生じさせているのか、計算化学的に考察を行った。 【方法】それぞれの複合体に対し、阻害剤の周囲25?に対し水分子を発生させた系で分子動力学(MD)計算を行い、このトラジェクトリーに対し溶媒効果を含めた相互作用計算を行った。また、阻害剤の結合状態と水中との運動性の差を解析するため、阻害剤を半径25?の球状の水分子クラスター中に配置した系でもMD計算を行い、置換基の二面角を中心に運動性を検討した。 【結果と考察】相互作用計算の結果、CC4

    【目的】インドやスリランカの伝統医学アーユルヴェーダでは、Salacia属植物が糖尿病の特効薬として用いられている。本植物から単離されるチオ糖スルホニウム硫酸分子内塩構造を持つsalacinolやkotalanolは、?グルコシダーゼを阻害することによる糖吸収抑制作用を有しており、同メカニズムに基づく抗糖尿病薬であるacarboseやvogliboseに匹敵する?グルコシダーゼ阻害活性を有している。本研究では、これらの化合物のタンパク質結合構造をもとに新規阻害剤の設計をするために、両化合物のドッキングシミュレーションを実施した。 【方法】まず、?グルコシダーゼの1つであるマルターゼグルコアミラーゼのN末端側触媒ドメインとacarbose及びcasuarineとの複合体構造(PDBID:2QMJおよび3CTT)を再現できるドッキングシミュレーション条件を探索した。次にそのシミュレーション条件を用いて、salacinol及びkotalanolの結合様式を推定した。 【結果】結合シミュレーションの結果、salacinol及び

    【目的】タンパク質と低分子との結合親和力を高精度に計算することは、ターゲットの構造に基づく薬物設計を行うために最も重要な要素のひとつである。定量性に最も優れた非経験的分子軌道法を、タンパク質などの大きな系に適用する計算手法として、Fragment MO(FMO)法が開発されている。タンパク質のFMO法による計算はすでに浸透しつつあるが、一般的に、タンパク質と低分子との相互作用には分散力が大きく寄与することが、MP2レベルなどの電子相関を考慮したFMO法のエネルギー計算から明らかとなってきている。しかし相互作用を精密に計算する前段階である構造最適化は、計算コストの問題から電子相関を考慮しないHFレベルで計算されているのが現状である。本研究ではMP2レベルの計算が構造に与える影響について検討を行った。 【方法】GAMESS/FMOを用いて、FK506 Binding Protein(FKBP)とその4つの阻害剤との各複合体をFMO-MP2/6-31Gレベル、および比較のためにFMO-HF/3-21Gレベルで構造最
