It includes in-depth molecular simulations of both the catalytic and allosteric binding pockets, with ensemble virtual screening focusing on their conformational flexibility. For modulators, the process includes considering the structural shifts due to reaction intermediates to boost 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.

Acid-sensing ion channel 2 (ASIC2), also known by names such as Amiloride-sensitive brain sodium channel and Brain sodium channel 1, plays a crucial role in the nervous system. It functions as a cation channel with high affinity for sodium, gated by extracellular protons and inhibited by amiloride. This channel is also permeable to Li(+) and K(+), generating a biphasic current essential for neuronal activity.

Therapeutic significance:

Understanding the role of Acid-sensing ion channel 2 could open doors to potential therapeutic strategies. Its involvement in modulating neuronal activity through heteromeric channel assembly offers a promising avenue for exploring treatments for neurological disorders.
