Simple Predictive Models of Passive Membrane Permeability Incorporating Size-Dependent Membrane-Water Partition

2017-11-09T12:01:05+00:00 May 23rd, 2016|by our Team Members, Publications|

We investigate the relationship between passive permeability and molecular size, in the context of solubility-diffusion theory, using a diverse compound set with molecular weights ranging from 151 to 828, which have all been characterized in a consistent manner using the RRCK cell monolayer assay.

Starting up and spinning out: The changing nature of partnerships between pharma and academia

2017-09-19T08:55:30+00:00 September 4th, 2015|In the News|

In 2005, two chemists decided to work together to develop libraries of cyclic peptides—strings of amino acids formed in the shape of a circle—that could be used to treat a range of infectious diseases, autoimmunity and cancer. Thanks to their flexibility, these cyclic peptides can access different parts of a protein target and so bind to …

Probing the Physicochemical Boundaries of Cell Permeability and Oral Bioavailability in Lipophilic Macrocycles Inspired by Natural Products

2017-11-09T12:12:57+00:00 May 7th, 2015|by our Team Members, Publications|

Cyclic peptide natural products contain a variety of conserved, nonproteinogenic structural elements such as d-amino acids and amide N-methylation. In addition, many cyclic peptides incorporate γ-amino acids and other elements derived from polyketide synthases.
