13th WCMBC in Steamboat Springs: January 2017

13th WCMBC in Steamboat Springs: January 2017ChemMedChem will be sponsoring the next Winter Conference on Medicinal & Bioorganic Chemistry this coming January 22nd–26th in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The organizers have lined up another impressive list of presenters for this year's event. And as if excellent cutting-edge science weren't enough, this meeting comes with a healthy dose of play time too: unforgettable skiing in the bright sun and deep snow of northern Colorado.

  1. Regulated Drug Release Abilities of Calcium Carbonate–Gelatin Hybrid Nanocarriers Fabricated via a Self-Organizational Process

    Dr. Kazuki Murai, Kazuya Kurumisawa, Prof. Yoshihiro Nomura and Prof. Mutsuyoshi Matsumoto

    Version of Record online: 23 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cmdc.201700358

    Take a load off: We investigated the drug-releasing behavior of a calcium carbonate (CaCO3)–gelatin hybrid nanocarrier fabricated through a single process using biomimetic mineralization. Drug release from the nanocarrier depends largely on the surrounding pH, with low pH conditions favoring cargo dissociation from the carrier.

  2. What Are We Missing? The Detergent Triton X-100 Added to Avoid Compound Aggregation Can Affect Assay Results in an Unpredictable Manner

    Dr. Fabian G. R. Ehlert, Dr. Kerstin Linde and Prof. Dr. Wibke E. Diederich

    Version of Record online: 23 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cmdc.201700329

    To be or not to be: Herein we show that the addition of Triton X-100, which is widely used to detect unspecific binding of compounds, significantly decreases the binding affinities of HIV-1 protease inhibitors that show conclusive SAR with protein-specific binding modes as confirmed by X-ray crystallography. Notably, the addition of the zwitterionic detergent CHAPS had only a marginal influence on the determined Ki values.

    Matched Molecular Pair Analysis on Large Melting Point Datasets: A Big Data Perspective

    Michael Withnall, Dr. Hongming Chen and Dr. Igor V. Tetko

    Version of Record online: 23 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cmdc.201700303

    An MMP for MPs: A matched molecular pair analysis was used to examine the change in melting point (ΔMP) between molecules in a set of ∼275 000 compounds. We found many cases in which the ΔMP correlates with changes in functional groups and simple descriptors, such as number of hydrogen bond donors and acceptors. We observed that this method remains stable and scales well with larger datasets, indicating its utility as a simple privacy-preserving technique to analyze large proprietary databases and share findings.
