Cyclica Collaborates With Enamine to Use REAL Technology in Its Ligand Design Platform for AI-augmented Drug Design

Cyclica, Inc. announced a collaboration with Enamine Ltd. to explore its huge readily accessible chemical space using Cyclica’s state-of-the-art AI-driven Ligand Design™ platform. The companies aim to empower Cyclica’s patented, evolutionary algorithm with new design options based on the 73,000 Enamine’s in-stock building blocks and 171 thoroughly validated synthesis procedures. The joint effort is expected to enable Cyclica’s Ligand Design™ to identify novel molecules with desired polypharmacological properties out of over 11 billion REAL™ (readily accessible) compounds. At least 80% of these compounds will be synthesized by Enamine within only 3-4 weeks.

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.

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.
