The procedure entails thorough molecular simulations of the catalytic and allosteric binding pockets, accompanied by ensemble virtual screening that factors in their conformational flexibility. When developing modulators, the structural modifications brought about by reaction intermediates are factored in to optimize activity and selectivity.

Our library is unique due to several crucial aspects:

  • Receptor.AI compiles all relevant data on the target protein, such as past experimental results, literature findings, known ligands, and structural data, thereby enhancing the likelihood of focusing on the most significant compounds.
  • By utilizing advanced molecular simulations, the platform is adept at locating potential binding sites, rendering the compounds in the focused library well-suited for unearthing allosteric inhibitors and binders for hidden pockets.
  • The platform is supported by more than 50 highly specialized AI models, all of which have been rigorously tested and validated in diverse drug discovery and research programs. Its design emphasizes efficiency, reliability, and accuracy, crucial for producing focused libraries.
  • Receptor.AI extends beyond just creating focused libraries; it offers a complete spectrum of services and solutions during the preclinical drug discovery phase, with a success-dependent pricing strategy that reduces risk and fosters shared success in the project.

Glutamine synthetase, known as Glutamate--ammonia ligase or Palmitoyltransferase GLUL, plays a pivotal role in nitrogen metabolism by catalyzing the ATP-dependent conversion of glutamate and ammonia to glutamine. This enzyme's activity is crucial in various tissues, including the brain, where it detoxifies ammonia and converts glutamate to glutamine, and the liver, where it aids in ammonia removal. Beyond its enzymatic functions, it is involved in endothelial cell migration, ribosomal 40S subunit biogenesis, and may act as a palmitoyltransferase for RHOJ.

Therapeutic significance:

Glutamine synthetase's dysfunction is linked to Congenital systemic glutamine deficiency, a rare disorder causing severe brain malformation, multi-organ failure, and neonatal death. Understanding the role of Glutamine synthetase could open doors to potential therapeutic strategies for this and related conditions.
