Brings together functional and structural informationrelevant to the design of drugs targeting zinc enzymesThe second most abundant transition element in living organisms, zinc spans all areas of metabolism, with zinc-containing proteins offering both established and potential drug targets. Drug Design of Zinc-Enzyme Inhibitors brings together functional and structural information relevant to these zinc-containing targets. With up-to-date overviews of the latest developments field, this unique and comprehensive text enables readers to understand zinc enzymes and evaluate them in a drug design context.With contributions from the leaders of today's research, Drug Design of Zinc-Enzyme Inhibitors covers such key topics as:Major drug targets like carbonic anhydrases, matrix metalloproteinases, bacterial proteases, angiotensin-converting enzyme, histone deacetylase, and APOBEC3GRoles of recently discovered zinc-containing isozymes in cancer, obesity, epilepsy, pain management, malaria, and other conditionsCross reactivity of zinc-enzyme inhibitors and activatorsThe extensive use of X-ray crystallography and QSAR studies for understanding zinc-containing proteinsClinical applicationsAn essential resource for the discovery and development of new drug molecules, Drug Design of Zinc-Enzyme Inhibitors gives researchers, professionals, students, and academics the foundation to understand and work with zinc enzyme inhibitors and activators.
