Identifying allosteric pockets

Allosteric pockets can have a significant effect on the mechanism of protein action. Andy Smith, Discovery Services Scientist, explains why identifying and understanding allosteric pockets is particularly important for targets where traditional drug design methods fail and when HTS screens reveal unexpected results. 

New web-based platform to keep chemists connected for faster quality candidate selection

Torx™ enables medicinal and synthetic chemists to create innovative new designs, share and review them with colleagues, and track them through synthesis in your own or partner labs. Find out more and request an evaluation.

Compound procurement partnership

A recent virtual screening project led Cresset Discovery Services to procure compounds from MolPort. “The range of compounds offered by MolPort was impressive, as was the speed of their service. We welcome them as a partner and look forward to working with them again”, commented Dr Martin Slater, Director of Consulting Services, Cresset Discovery Services.

As a leading, experienced compound sourcing and screening sample ordering service, MolPort is very happy to partner with Cresset Discovery Services,” said Imants Zudans, CEO, MolPort. “We were pleased to assist their customers with rapid and efficient compound acquisition. Our sourcing expertise in a recent virtual screening project showed how our collaboration with Cresset Discovery Services can help scientists accelerate their drug discovery activities, freeing them to focus on science rather than administration.”
