ACVR1 Crystals taken to the Diamond Light Source (Beamline I04.) – no data sets collected.

Following up on the crystals from my last post I sent them along on the last Diamond trip we had to beamline I04 but regrettably didn’t get any usable datasets. Perhaps fortunately there is a possible explanation for this that isn’t just ‘the crystals were a bit too rubbish’. We send our crystals to the Diamond Read More …

Testing Selectivity of USP5 Zf-UBD Analogues with SPR Assay

In a previous post, I tested hit analogues and found compound XSR00035795a (Figure 1) had increased potency and ligand efficiency; however, compound XSR00035795a was also found to bind to HDAC6 Zf-UBD, so it was not selective towards USP5. Figure 1. XSR00035795a We hypothesized that it was possible to extend the aliphatic group on the carboxylic Read More …
