Formatted abstract
Designing for selectivity: A combination of protein crystal-structure analysis, virtual screening, and synthetic chemistry has been used to develop noncytotoxic inhibitors of RabGGTase (IC 50: 42nM for the example shown; red O, blue N, yellow S) that are selective over FTase and GGTaseI. Furthermore, the inhibitors display cellular activity and inhibit cancer cell proliferation.
