New Details About Protein Binding Could Lead to Better Drugs

Atom-scale models by Rice University scientists based on those used to predict how proteins fold show a strong correlation between minimally frustrated binding sites and drug specificity. The funnel, a visual representation of the protein's energy landscape as it folds, helps locate those frustrated sites. Such models could lead to better-designed drugs with fewer side effects.

Team Investigates Potential Drug Therapy Combination for Lung Cancer

News

Researchers report that in non-small-cell lung carcinoma, secondary mutations occurring with another gene alteration known as ALK make the efficacy of alectinib, an otherwise commonly used drug for treating lung cancer, become unfavorable. Combining alectinib with another drug could help to overcome these effects.
