Focused On-demand Libraries - Reaxense Collaboration

Explore the Potential with AI-Driven Innovation

This extensive focused library is tailor-made using the latest virtual screening and parameter assessment technology, operated by the Receptor.AI drug discovery platform. This technique is more effective than traditional methods, offering compounds with improved activity, selectivity, and safety.

We carefully select specific compounds from a vast collection of over 60 billion molecules in virtual chemical space. Our partner Reaxense helps in synthesizing and delivering these compounds.

In the library, a selection of top modulators is provided, each marked with 38 ADME-Tox and 32 parameters related to physicochemical properties and drug-likeness. Also, every compound comes with its best docking poses, affinity scores, and activity scores, providing a comprehensive overview.

We use our state-of-the-art dedicated workflow for designing focused libraries for enzymes.

This approach involves comprehensive molecular simulations of the catalytic and allosteric binding pockets and ensemble virtual screening that accounts for their conformational flexibility. In the case of designing modulators, the structural adjustments caused by reaction intermediates are considered to improve activity and selectivity.

Several key aspects differentiate our library:

  • Receptor.AI compiles an all-encompassing dataset on the target protein, including historical experiments, literature data, known ligands, and structural insights, maximising the chances of prioritising the most pertinent compounds.
  • The platform employs state-of-the-art molecular simulations to identify potential binding sites, ensuring the focused library is primed for discovering allosteric inhibitors and binders of concealed pockets.
  • Over 50 customisable AI models, thoroughly evaluated in various drug discovery endeavours and research projects, make Receptor.AI both efficient and accurate. This technology is integral to the development of our focused libraries.
  • In addition to generating focused libraries, Receptor.AI offers a full range of services and solutions for every step of preclinical drug discovery, with a pricing model based on success, thereby reducing risk and promoting joint project success.

Methionine synthase, also known as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate--homocysteine methyltransferase, plays a pivotal role in methionine biosynthesis by transferring a methyl group from methylcob(III)alamin to homocysteine, yielding methionine. This process is vital for DNA synthesis and repair, implicating the protein in crucial cellular functions.

Therapeutic significance:

The protein's malfunction is linked to Homocystinuria-megaloblastic anemia, cblG complementation type, and Neural tube defects, folate-sensitive, highlighting its therapeutic potential. Understanding the role of Methionine synthase could open doors to potential therapeutic strategies for these conditions.
