Inhibitors of TMPK from Mycobacterium tuberculosis
TMPK from Mycobacterium tuberculosis belongs to the NMPK family, which was chosen as potential targets for the development of new antimicrobials (see “Nucleoside monophosphate kinases” project). Based on the 3D-structure of TMPK from M. […]
Inhibitors of the 2’-deoxyribonucleotide N-hydrolase DNPH1, an enzyme involved in cellular growth and angiogenesis
Nucleoside analogues as potential antitumor agents. This project aims to characterize and validate the nucleotide N-hydrolase DNPH1 as a new target in oncology. Inhibition of Rcl alone or in combination with other chemotherapeutic drugs […]
Inhibitors of bacterial NAD kinases
NAD mimics as potential antibacterial agents The NAD(P) biosynthesis pathways have attracted recent interest as a source of enzyme targets for the development of antimicrobial agents. Our own research focused on the structure-based development […]
