REAL VLS to Find Activators of BMP Signaling using Neural Network Crystal Structures

Over the past 12 months, our project 'REAL VLS to Find Activators of BMP Signaling using Neural Network Crystal Structures' has made significant progress toward identifying novel BMP7 mimetics that can bind to the ALK3 receptor, potentially stimulating the regeneration of beta cells from progenitor cells. This journey has been greatly facilitated by the comprehensive tools and suites provided by BioSolveIT, particularly SeeSAR and infiniSee. infiniSee has been instrumental in enabling us to explore a vast chemical space efficiently. By leveraging its advanced algorithms, we were able to search through millions of potential ligands that could act as BMP7 mimetics....
