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.

From a virtual chemical space containing more than 60 billion molecules, we precisely choose certain compounds. Our collaborator, Reaxense, aids in their synthesis and provision.

The library features a range of promising modulators, each detailed with 38 ADME-Tox and 32 physicochemical and drug-likeness parameters. Plus, each compound is presented with its ideal docking poses, affinity scores, and activity scores, ensuring a thorough insight.

Our high-tech, dedicated method is applied to construct targeted libraries for enzymes.

The method includes detailed molecular simulations of the catalytic and allosteric binding pockets, along with ensemble virtual screening that considers their conformational flexibility. In the design of modulators, structural changes induced by reaction intermediates are taken into account to enhance activity and selectivity.

Our library stands out due to several important features:

  • The Receptor.AI platform compiles comprehensive data on the target protein, encompassing previous experiments, literature, known ligands, structural details, and more, leading to a higher chance of selecting the most relevant compounds.
  • Advanced molecular simulations on the platform help pinpoint potential binding sites, making the compounds in our focused library ideal for finding allosteric inhibitors and targeting cryptic pockets.
  • Receptor.AI boasts over 50 tailor-made AI models, rigorously tested and proven in various drug discovery projects and research initiatives. They are crafted for efficacy, dependability, and precision, all of which are key in creating our focused libraries.
  • Beyond creating focused libraries, Receptor.AI offers comprehensive services and complete solutions throughout the preclinical drug discovery phase. Our success-based pricing model minimises risk and maximises the mutual benefits of the project's success.

Histone lysine demethylase PHF8, also known as PHD finger protein 8, plays a pivotal role in cell cycle progression, rDNA transcription, and brain development. It specifically targets and demethylates key histone marks, acting as a transcription activator by removing epigenetic repressive marks such as H3K9Me1, H3K9Me2, H3K27Me2, and H4K20Me1. This activity is crucial for the regulation of gene expression, impacting cell division and neuronal gene expression.

Therapeutic significance:

PHF8 is linked to Intellectual developmental disorder, X-linked, syndromic, Siderius type, a condition characterized by intellectual disability and potentially cleft lip/palate. Understanding PHF8's role could unveil new therapeutic strategies for treating this genetic disorder, highlighting the importance of targeted research in epigenetic modulation for developmental diseases.
