Andrade, Carolina Horta, orient. Face ao exposto, o objetivo deste trabalho foi planejar novos inibidores da enzima tiorredoxina glutationa redutase de S.

Currently the control of this disease is based solely on the administration of praziquantel.

However, its extensive use has asquslmintos concerns about the emergence of resistant worms and the need of discovering new anti-schistosomal drugs. Given the above, the main goal of this study was to design new S. At the stage of drug design, binary QSAR models were constructed and validated to predict inhibitory activity of Xsquelmintos, a validated target in schistosomes. At the end of this process, 29 compounds were prioritized and purchased for biological evaluation.

In the second part of this work, that is drug repositioning, 2, proteins of S. As a result, drugs were predicted to interact with 49 schistosome proteins, of which 47 had already anti-schistosomal activity reported in the literature. Then, principal component analysis PCA and k-means showed that drugs were in the chemical space of known anti-schistosomal agents, increasing the overall confidence of predictions. Among them, paroxetine PARan antidepressant drug predicted to inhibit serotonin transporter proteins of S.

Lastly, molecular docking studies with SmSERT-A and its ortholog in humans hsert explored the molecular basis for anti-schistosomal activity of PAR and provided information for the design of more potent and selective analogs.

Artigo 11 Antitrypanosomal activity and evaluation of the mechanism of action of dehydrodieugenol isolated from Nectandra leucantha Lauraceae and its methylated derivative against Trypanosoma cruzi Simone S. Klein, Sanghyun Cho, Guilherme R. Schistosomiasis is a debilitating neglected tropical disease, caused by flatworms of Schistosoma genus. The treatment relies on a single drug, praziquantel PZQmaking the discovery of new compounds extremely urgent.

Using these models, we prioritized 29 compounds for further testing in two HCS platforms based on image analysis of assay plates. Among them, 2-[2- 3-methylnitroisoxazolyl vinyl]pyridine and 2- benzylsulfonyl -1,3-benzothiazole, two compounds representing new chemical scaffolds have activity against schistosomula and adult worms at low micromolar concentrations and therefore represent promising antischistosomal hits for further hit-to-lead optimization.

These worms cause a chronic and often debilitating infection that impairs development and productivity, and exposure to these worms is strongly linked to extreme poverty. Currently, schistosomiasis is endemic in 78 countries worldwide, mainly in sub-saharan Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and South America, where infections are mediated through poor knowledge about the disease, poor sanitation, and lack of effective health policies.

Hence, there is an urgent asquelmlntos for new antischistosomal drugs with novel mechanisms of action.

The complete genome sequencing of Schistosoma mansoni, 13,14 Schistosoma japonicum, 15 and Schistosoma hematobium 16 has provided new information on their asquelmontos pathways, identifying potentially relevant targets for therapeutic intervention. December 31, Published: In both systems, NADPH provides reducing equivalents via two specialized oxidoreductase flavoenzymes.


On the other hand, in schistosomes, thiol redox homeostasis is completely dependent on TGR, asqudlmintos controls the NADPH reduction of GSSG and Trx in both systems Given these characteristics, it is expected that the maintenance of asquelkintos homeostatic levels of Trx and GSH in schistosomes play a key role in a variety of cellular processes such as defense against oxidative stress, DNA synthesis, detoxification, protein folding, and repair.

Due to the importance of TGR cilo parasite s redox balance, we hypothesized that known SmTGR inhibitors listed on publicly available databases may serve as the chemical basis to discover new antischistosomal compounds tilo virtual screening VS. Docking-based and pharmacophore-based approaches are the most popular VS strategies to identify putative hits in chemical libraries. Asquuelmintos, in recent years, quantitative structure activity relationships QSAR models have been used widely in VS applications as well The main goal of this study was the identification of new structurally dissimilar compounds with high antischistosomal activity.

To achieve this goal, we designed a study with the following steps: As a result of this study, we found that the QSAR models were efficient for prediction of new SmTGR inhibitors and identified six novel antischistosomal hit compounds active against schistosomula and three hits active against adult worms. Among them, two hits, 2-[2- 3-methyl nitroisoxazolyl vinyl]pyridine aquelmintos and 2- benzylsulfonyl – 1,3-benzothiazole 4representing new chemical scaffolds structurally dissimilar to known inhibitors tilo S.

Asquelmintoa the original data set was highly unbalanced, i. During model building, most machine learning methods need equal weighting Article of the classes in terms of both the number of instances and the level of importance i. Consequently, when trying to predict a minority class in an unbalanced data set, machine learning methods are prone to assign most samples to the majority class, resulting in a large number of erroneous predictions for minority class. To accomplish this task, we developed an undersampling workflow based on k-nearest neighbors knn distances of the each noninhibitor to all inhibitors using the public available substructures MACCS keys.

We tested different sizes of the data set by removing noninhibitors and changing the inhibitorsto-noninhibitors ratios of 1: To visualize the structural diversity of our data set before tilo after balancing, we performed a principal component analysis PCA.

PCA transforms the original measured variables into new orthogonal variables called principal components, which are a linear combination of the original variables.

Detailed results of structural diversity investigation are shown in Supporting Information, Figure S1. As we can see, the inhibitors are widely distributed across chemical space, reflecting significant chemical diversity. As we can see from the distribution of these dots, the most representative compounds were chosen that allowed minimal reduction of the original chemical space.

The balanced ratio of 1: According to the statistical results of a 5-fold external cross-validation procedure, we could draw three general conclusions: Table 1 asquelmintoe the detailed performances of the more predictive QSAR models derived from the balanced data set. The results from this analysis CCR values around 0.

Performance of Consensus Models.

However, our previous experience suggests that consensus models that combine individual QSAR models are advantageous46 49 and naturally minimize prediction errors during a VS campaign. Therefore, consensus models were built by averaging the predicted values obtained after combining the individual models built using the balanced data set.

The detailed performances of 12 consensus models are given in Supporting Information, Table S5. A consensus rigor model only Table 1.

To ensure that the accuracy of the models was not due to chance correlation, 10 rounds of Y-randomization were performed for each data set Supporting Information, Table Figure 1. Unfavorable fragments purple for SmTGR inhibition predicted by the best individual QSAR model and their respective frequencies in inhibitors and noninhibitors sets.



Although the AD of consensus rigor is limited only for certain asqyelmintos classes coverage of 0. The Morgan RF model exhibited the best predictive performance, and, consequently, asquelmintoz possesses the features that are best correlated with SmTGR inhibition activity. Atoms and fragments promoting the inhibition are highlighted by green Figure 1atoms and fragments decreasing the inhibitory potential are highlighted by purple Figure 2and gray lines Figures 1 and 2 delimit the region of split between the favorable and the unfavorable contributions.

Examples of assuelmintos fragments for SmTGR inhibition activity are nitrofuran, 2-ethenylfuran, ethanesulfonyl benzene, 2- sulfonylmethyl furan, carbonyl thiourea, and 4-methanesulfonyl-1,3-oxazole.

By analyzing the fragments with unfavorable contribution into SmTGR inhibition activity Figure 2several fragments, such as benzylsulfonamide, methylurea, morpholinecarbonyl, piperidinecarboxamide, 1-methanesulfonylpiperidine, and cyclohexanecarbonyl, were more frequent in the noninhibitors set.

Compounds that contain these fragments may show a decreased SmTGR inhibitory activity. This information could be useful for designing or optimizing new SmTGR inhibitors by replacing unfavorable fragments by favorable fragments.

The latter should be highly mobile to accept DOI: The higher nucleophilicity and low pk a of the selenol group of Sec are thought to confer Sec a catalytic advantage over Cys at the attacking position Nonetheless, the thioredoxin domain contains Asqulemintos and Glu, a catalytic dyad that can facilitate proton abstraction of Cys, thus impacting the catalytic efficiency of the thioredoxin domain of SmTGR. With PPMs information for this chemotype, a mechanistic rationale for inhibition was initiated through nucleophilic attack presumably by a thiolate or selenoate of Cys or Sec, respectively at either the position 3 or 4 of the oxadiazole ring and subsequent rearrangement of the heterocycle in a manner that allows release of the nitroxyl anion.

An enzymatic oxidation is posited to transform this agent to nitric oxide Figure 3D. These pieces of information corroborate with mechanism of inhibition proposed by Rai and colleagues 54 and mechanism of nitric oxide release in physiological solution under the action of thiols fllo by Gasco and xsquelmintos 55 In addition, PPMs indicated that the presence of amine-oxide group azquelmintos core and electronwithdrawing substituents, such as carbonyl, at R1 and R2 positions asquelminhos favorable for SmTGR inhibition Figure 3Awhile removal of the amine-oxide group Figure 3B and presence of electron deficient substituents at R1 and R2 positions Figure 3C leads to modest potencies in terms of SmTGR inhibition.

These pieces of information corroborate with structure activity relationships rules established by Rai and fklo. On the basis of these results, we suggest that inhibition of SmTGR by cephalosporins may occur via a asquelmintod similar to proposed by Triboulet and colleagues, 56 i.

Then, the acyl-enzyme intermediate could hydrolyze or react further, with expulsion of the 1-methyltetrazolethione from carbon 3 generating a reactive methylene that could be trapped by other thiolate or selenoate Supporting Information, Figure S2B.

As drug-like ligands are Figure 4. Chemical structures of six priority hits selected for further follow up.

To narrow down the compounds list and to obtain the highest level of confidence for each prediction, we took both the consensus score average class prediction and consensus model coverage into consideration.

Consensus model coverage was defined as a fraction of individual models for asquel,intos a compound was found to fall within the respective ADs.

Meaning of “asquelminto” in the Portuguese dictionary

In that asqulmintos, introducing probability cutoffs can lead to predictions with higher confidence. Therefore, only putative hits with an average class number prediction of 1. Ex Vivo Activity Against Schistosomula. Compared to target-based VS approaches, the traditional whole-organism schistosome screening approach phenotypic screening is an old but indispensable method to discover new antischistosomal agents.

This phenotypic approach may be used to validate if the predicted SmTGR-inhibitor interaction has antischistosomal activity.
