    Zhou, Linna; Ishizaki, Hironori; Spitzer, Michaela; Taylor, Kerrie; Temperley, Nicholas; Johnson, Stephen; Brear, Paul; Gautier, Philippe; Zeng, Zhiqiang; Mitchell, Amy; Narayan, Vikram; McNeil, Ewan; Melton, David; Smith, Terry K; Tyers, Mike; Westwood, Nicholas James; Patton, Elizabeth (2012-07-27) - Journal article
    Understanding how drugs work in vivo is critical for drug design and for maximizing the potential of currently available drugs. 5-nitrofurans are a class of pro-drugs widely used to treat bacterial and trypanosome infections, ...
  • A Random Forest model for predicting allosteric and functional sites on proteins 

    Chen, Ava S.-Y.; Westwood, Nicholas J.; Brear, Paul; Rogers, Graeme W.; Mavridis, Lazaros; Mitchell, John B. O. (2016-04-05) - Journal article
    We created a computational method to identify allosteric sites using a machine learning method trained and tested on protein structures containing bound ligand molecules. The Random Forest machine learning approach was ...
  • The search for allosteric inhibitors 

    Brear, Paul (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
    This thesis describes the development of chemical tools that inhibit the sialidases NanA and NanB from Streptococcus pneumonia. The primary focus was on the discovery of allosteric inhibitors of NanA and NanB, however, ...
