Описание: G. E. Francis and Cristina Delgado have assembled a comprehensive collection of leading-edge protocols for drug targeting studies. In addition to the detailed step-by-step instruction, the protocols review the principal current targeting strategies, discuss how to build the constructs, examine theoretical considerations relevant to solid tumors, and describe experimental and clinical applications of targeted drug delivery systems. Also present are new chemical and biological approaches to the preparation of targeted biopharmaceuticals, including ribonuclease-antibody chimeras, bispecific antibodies, enzyme-antibody conjugates, and folate-bearing conjugates. Applications include the targeting of myocardial infarctions using liposomal systems, the use of monoclonal antibodies to target malaria and HIV-infected cells, the targeting of fusion proteins to leukemias and lymphomas, and the use of antioxidant enzyme-antibody conjugates to target the pulmonary endothelium. Comprehensive and innovative, Drug Targeting: Strategies, Principles, and Applications documents in practical detail the major new chemical and biological targeting methods now being used to produce today's emerging rich array of novel diagnostic agents and promising biopharmaceuticals.

Описание: Protein targeting is the study of how proteins synthesized in one part of the cell reach their ultimate destination. This book is a preview of the latest research, which has applications for understanding cancer, studying diseases due to faulty targeting, and genetic manipulation of microorganisms.
Описание: Proteins act as macromolecular machinery that mediate many diverse biological processes - the molecular mechanisms of this machinery has fascinated biologists for decades. Analysis of the kinetic and thermodynamic features of these mechanisms could reveal unprecedented aspects of how the machinery function and will eventually lead to a novel understanding of various biological processes. This dissertation comprehensively demonstrates how two universally conserved guanosine triphosphatases in the signal recognition particle and its membrane receptor maintain the efficiency and fidelity of the co-translational protein targeting process essential to all cells. A series of quantitative experiments reveal that the highly ordered and coordinated conformational states of the machinery are the key to their regulatory function. This dissertation also offers a mechanistic view of another fascinating system in which multistate protein machinery closely control critical biological processes.Written while completing graduate work at California Institute of Technology.

Описание: This thesis describes research into the mode of function, inhibition, and evolution of the ribosomal catalytic center, the Peptidyl Transferase Center (PTC)--research that has already led to attempts at improving PTC antibiotics. The PhD candidate carried out two parallel studies. One using a combination of X-ray crystallography, biochemistry, molecular biology, and theoretical studies to obtain crystal structures of ribosomal particles with antibiotics that target the PTC, revealing the modes of action, resistance, cross-resistance and discrimination between ribosomes of eubacterial pathogens and eukaryotic hosts. In the second parallel study, the candidate synthesized a ribosomal substructure--one that may represent the minimal entity capable of catalyzing peptide bond formation--shedding light on the origin of the ribosome itself.
Описание: The current progress in molecular medicine allows the identification of a plethora of new and often human-specific drug targets. An early in vivo validation of specific ligands binding to these targets in humans is needed to assess their potential for targeted imaging and radiotherapy.
