Small molecule inhibitors of Zika, dengue and other flaviviruses

Currently, broadly-protective antivirals targeting flaviviruses such as Zika, Dengue and West Nile viruses, are not available. Researchers in the laboratory of Dr. Priscilla Yang have identified a group of small molecules, including a prototype…

Targeting spiral ganglion neurons for treatment of hearing loss

Hearing loss makes interactions with the world challenging for over 30 million people in the United States. While cochlear implants and hearing aid devices can ameliorate hearing loss, they often fail to restore the function of spiral ganglion…

Small-molecule macrocycles: Potent and selective Src kinase inhibitors

Macrocyclic compounds have unique properties that allow them to cover regions of chemical space not addressed by other small-molecule structural classes. By performing an in vitro selection screen of a broad untargeted DNA-encoded library of 13,824…

Trioxacarcins and analogs: DNA-modifying compounds with potent anti-proliferative effects

The trioxacarcins are a new class of DNA-modifying natural products with potent antiproliferative effects (with subnanmolar IC70 values against lung, mammary, and CNS cancer cell lines). Trioxacarcin A, B, and C were first discovered and isolated…

Small molecule inhibitors of Ebola virus entry

Background: Human cells that are susceptible to infection by pathogenic viruses express surface membrane proteins that mediate attachment and membrane fusion activity of virus glycoproteins. There are strong structural and functional similarities…

Synthesis of compounds with peptide characteristics

Although peptides have shown some promise in clinical trials as therapeutic agents, its success has largely been limited by several factors, including rapid degradation by peptidases, poor cell permeability, and a lack of binding specificity…

Inhibitors of protein-processivity factor

Harvard investigators have discovered that Pol interacts with a processivity factor at a site that is distinct from sites of normal interaction between known Pol family members and other cellular factors. Unlike most protein-protein interactions,…
