Towards the Systematic Exploration of Chemical Space: Design, Synthesis and Exploitation of Diverse Small Molecular Libraries
SelectBio

Our knowledge of the biological relevance of chemical space is based, to a large extent, on its historical exploration by synthesis (and biosynthesis). However, chemists’ exploration of chemical space has been uneven and unsystematic: the known organic chemistry ‘universe’ is dominated by a small number of scaffolds that are found in a large number of small molecules. Developing synthetic approaches that allow broad tracts of chemical space to be explored has proved extremely challenging. This presentation will describe synthetic approaches that enable the preparation of libraries of diverse small molecules. Methods which allow the systematic variation of ligand scaffold are particularly rare, and the scaffold diversity of chemical libraries does not approach that of natural products. One of the synthetic approaches that will be described has yielded a small molecule library of unprecedented skeletal diversity. Remarkably, it possible that the approach might address the synthetic problems associated with each of the stages of ligand discovery.

Odd Histone Helps Suppress Jumping Genes in Stem Cells, Study Says
Research reveals a basic mechanism by which epigenetics, or the control of inherited traits through means other than DNA, works.
Lipid Nanoparticle Therapeutic Treats Ebola in Monkeys
A newly designed agent was effective in treating monkeys infected with a deadly Ebola virus strain.
Aflatoxin Biosynthesis - a Novel Source of Reactive Oxygen Species
Researchers at the Michigan State University found that the aflatoxin biosynthetic pathway in A. Parasiticus directly or indirectly generates ROS in aflatoxisomes/endosomes and that Superoxide represents a significant fraction of the aflatoxin biosynthesis-derived ROS pool.
SSR Markers and Genetic Diversity in White Birch
The results of this study indicate that the white birch trees sampled from six geographical locations had low to moderate similarity (0.025–0.610) and suggested that the SSR primers used in this study can effectively distinguish white birch germplasm.
The Genetics Behind Abdominal Pigmentation in Drosophila melanogaster
This study by researchers at the North Carolina State University provides evidence that genetic variation at a number of steps in regulatory, developmental, and transport pathways may contribute to natural variation in abdominal pigmentation.
