This sequence of selective screening and synthesis of analogues may be repeated many times before a potentially useful drug is found. Often the sequence has to be abandoned as being either unproductive or too expensive. 2. 4. 1 Natural sources Natural sources are still important sources of lead compounds and new drugs. However, the large diversity of potential natural sources in the world makes the technique of random screening a rather hit or miss process. The screening of local folk remedies (ethnopharmacology) offers the basis of a more systematic approach.
8). Cerebrosides occur mainly in brain and nervous tissues. Sulphatides are the main sulpholipids in the brain, where they account for approximately 15% of the white matter. Gangliosides are particularly abundant in the cells of the central nervous system. 1 and Appendix 5) for toxins, such as cholera and tetanus toxins, and some viruses, such as the influenza virus. 8 Examples of the subclassification of glycolipids. R groups are normally long saturated hydrocarbon chains with 21–25 carbon atoms (a C22–C26 fatty acid residue) Subclassification Cerebrosides (neutral glycolipids) have either a glucose or galactose carbohydrate residue.
Its outer surface has two grooves, known as the minor and major grooves respectively, which act as the binding sites for many ligands. Electron microscopy has shown that the double helical chain of DNA is folded, twisted and coiled into quite compact shapes. 30 The double helical structure of B -DNA. Interchanging of either the bases of a base pair and/or base pair with base pair does not affect the geometry of this structure.
