Drug design of covalent ligands with SeeSAR & Enamine library

We are proud to announce that our covalent compound library is now available in a ready-to-dock format for BioSolveIT’s drug design dashboard SeeSAR. Over 20 different warheads were processed and translated to their respective ligand-bound form to assess their binding mode after docking.

Open positions for Postdocs and Research Scientists

We still have several funded Postdoc positions in organic chemistry to work at Enamine Ltd. (Ukraine, Kyiv) on a ERC-project “Saturated bioisosteres of benzene.”

Start: any time.

ERC Consolidator Grant project 2020

Congratulations to Pavel Mykhailiuk, Chief Scientific Officer at Enamine, for receiving ERC Consolidator Grant funding for the Project: BENOVELTY - Saturated bioisosteres of benzene and their application in drug design.

The research will be carried out at Enamine Ltd in Ukraine, a global provider of chemical and biological services to biotech companies, academic institutions and research organisations.

Let’s fight COVID-19 together

An international group of scientists from academia and industry, including Enamine, is trying to help combat COVID-19. This effort began when Chinese scientists worked rapidly to determine the structure of the novel SARS‑CoV‑2 main protease (Mpro), which triggered a massive crystal-based fragment screen at the XChem facility at UK’s Diamond Light Source. For more details, please visit https://www.diamond.ac.uk/covid-19. With the same urgency, the scientists are now trying to progress these data towards what is desperately needed: effective, easy-to-make anti-COVID drugs https://covid.postera.ai/covid.

Ion Channel and PPI Libraries now available pre-plated!

In continuation of our efforts to make affordable screening libraries that can quickly be supplied for screening, we have plated two new targeted libraries designed to bring high quality and novelty to your hit finding program. Both freshly-made libraries are ready for fast shipment within only one week in various formats including assay-ready plates.

Enamine’s covalent fragments produce potent and unique hits

In a recent JACS paper several academic groups collaborated on discovery of novel covalent inhibitors using a library of 993 acrylamides and chloroacetamides sourced from Enamine’s covalent fragment collection. The design was focusing on mild electrophiles that were supposed to overcome the selectivity challenge. The library was characterized by a new high-throughput thiol-reactivity assay and screened against 10 cysteine-containing proteins. Potent and unique primary hits have been found in the majority (7 out of 10) of cases.

Purification capabilities enhanced

The demand for library synthesis at Enamine driven by the on-site access to the world’s largest and most reputable stock of building block has multiplied in 2018. We keep developing our preparative chromatography capabilities to sustain the drastically increasing number of compounds produced.

Making Screening Libraries Assay-ready

Our compound management team at Enamine is excited about the recent acquisition of the Echo® 550 Liquid Handler from Labcyte. This robotic superhero is expected to significantly speed up and notably precise compound handling, which is exactly an option needed for 2.5 Million+ compounds in stock. Screening libraries at Enamine are now more accessible, more customized and assay-ready to meet your exact needs in compound screening.

REAL compounds with predicted biological activity

Accessing new chemistry for drug discovery has been recently facilitated by the approach developed by John Irwin et al. (DOI: 10.1021/acs.jcim.7b00316). Combination of Similarity Ensemble Approach (SEA) with the maximum Tanimoto similarity to the nearest bioactive was found to provide efficient prediction for all 400 million commercially available compounds in ZINC database including 340 million Enamine’s REAL compounds. You can access the files at https://zinc15.docking.org and http://files.docking.org/catalogs/20/enamine-v/. REAL compounds will be synthesized at Enamine on your request in less than 3 weeks with over 85% success rate!
