Computational Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Molecular Bioinformatics


Cover story in JACS Au: The membrane-bound phospholipase A1 from Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a potential drug target. PlaF remodels membrane glycerophospholipids, influencing virulence-associated signaling. Medium-chain free fatty acids, products of PlaF action, inhibit its activity. Molecular simulations and free energy computations uncover how fatty acids control PlaF. For further details, please see here.
