In 2009, EFMC launched a series of short courses aimed to favour cultural and scientific growth of the medicinal chemistry community and organized with affordable fees for participation. EFMC will continue the tradition in 2015, and is pleased to announce the following courses: 10th EFMC Short Course on Medicinal Chemistry Small-Molecule Modulation of Protein-Protein Interactions (PPIs) Oegstgeest (near Leiden), The...

Molecule could treat a wide range of CNS disorders

Scientists at the Cambridge, MA, startup Sage Therapeutics have discovered an innate mechanism that indirectly influences a key receptor linked to a number of neurologic and psychiatric disorders, including Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, autism and depression. The newly discovered natural allosteric modulator influences the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, which is known to play a role in regulating synaptic function...

Alga Provides Feasible Mass Production System for ...

An algal system for manufacturing recombinant proteins has provided scientists with the means to generate a malaria-blocking vaccine candidate based on two native unglycosylated Plasmodium falciparum surface proteins, Pfs25 and Pfs28. The University of California, San Diego researchers produced the two P. falciparum proteins in the chloroplasts of the widely used model alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, and then injected...

Toxins found in traditional Chinese medicine

A host of potential toxins, allergens and traces of endangered animals showed up in DNA sequencing tests on 15 Chinese traditional medicines, researchers said on Thursday. Such therapies have been used in China for more than 3,000 years, but have risen in popularity outside Asia in recent decades and now amount to a global industry worth hundreds of millions of dollars a year, according to the study in PLoS Genetics. Despite...

Screen uncovers hidden ingredients of Chinese medi...

Genetic audit reveals that some traditional remedies contain endangered animals and toxic plants. Chinese herbal medicines contain ingredients derived from endangered animals, toxic plants and livestock, a genetic audit has discovered. Few of these ingredients were listed on the packaging. “There’s absolutely no honesty in the labelling of these products. What they declare is completely at odds with what’s in there,”...
