Results and Discussion: A drug molecule was designed to fit into a specific receptor with a carbon skeleton, two amine groups and a hydroxl group arranged in a certain way. The ideal length of the molecule was calculated to be 8.04 A and the ideal width was calculated to be 4.97 A. The designed drug appears as follows: It was measured to be 8.07 A long and 5.03 A

Unformatted text preview: wide. Another group’s molecule appears as follows: It was measured to be 7.72 A long and 4.652 A wide. Conclusion: The first molecule was determined to fit better because it is closer to the actual length of the receptor, and although it is a little too tall, it is more important that it fits horizontally. This ensures that both nitrate groups on the ends reach the amine groups to interact with....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
