    Abstract : 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) and derivatives thereof are widely usedprodrugs in treatment of pre-malignant skin diseases of the cancer treatmentmethod photodynamic therapy (PDT). The target molecule in 5-ALAPDTis protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), which is synthesized endogenously from5-ALA via the heme pathway in the cell. READ MORE

    Abstract : En sjukdom kan många gånger härledas till en kaskadereaktion mellan proteiner, co-faktorer och substrat. Denna kaskadreaktion blir många gånger målet för att behandla sjukdomen med läkemedel. För att designa nya läkemedelsmoleyler används vanligen datorbaserade verktyg. READ MORE

  3. 3. QM/MM free-energy perturbation and other methods to estimate ligand-binding affinities

    Author : Martin Olsson; Teoretisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer-aided drug design; protein–ligand binding; molecular dynamics; free-energy perturbation; QM MM; convergence;

    Abstract : Experimental drug discovery is very time-consuming, risky and comes at a huge cost, typically several billion USD per drug. Even though decades of experimental drug discovery have provided cures of many diseases, there are still diseases for which there is no effective drug available. READ MORE

  4. 4. Assessment of Computational Methods for Ligand Binding

    Author : Paulius Mikulskis; Teoretisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; binding affinities; MM GBSA; MM PBSA; LIE; FEP; TI; BAR; protein-ligand complexes; drug design;

    Abstract : Most drugs act on biomacromolecules. The Cost of developing new drugs is very high. A method to accurately predict binding affinities would be very useful. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the estimation of ligand binding affinities

    Author : Samuel Genheden; Teoretisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; binding affinities protein-ligand complexes; host-guest complexes; MM GBSA; MM PBSA; LIE; PDLD s-LRA; alchemical methods; sampling; solvation; drug design;

    Abstract : A method to accurately estimate the binding affinity of a small molecule to a receptor would be indispensable in numerous fields. For instance, most drugs exert their action by binding to a macromolecule target. Thus, a lot of time and resources could be saved in drug design by predicting affinities by computer programs.
