An emerging class of medicines works its magic by targeting unusual sites on biological molecules
By Melinda Wenner
Therapeutic agents known as allosteric ("other site") modulators take aim at targets outside of where classic drugs, and the body's own substances, normally hit selected molecules in the body.
Merci à Vinsse qui nous a fait découvrir ce site
- A new drug discovery approach focuses on a property known as allosterism.
- Allosteric drugs attach to biological molecules at binding sites distinct from those usually targeted
of activating or inhibiting the bound molecules, as classic drugs do,
allosteric types can act more like dimmer switches and might, at times,
cause fewer side effects.
- Such agents may be able to treat disorders that lack drug therapies today.
