To close out Bioactive Small molecule week, we want to talk about selectivity.
Bioactive small molecules are not only potent (often nM) but they are also selective. What good is a powerful small molecule to your experiment if it doesn’t choose its target wisely? These compounds are powerful, yet non-promiscuous.
How selective are our bioactive small molecules? We are giving away bio-shirts for the best one-liners!!
Once again, Judy Boland, R&D senior scientist and Quipster Extraordinaire is here to get us started!
My bioactive compound is so selective…
…it will only drink the tears of virgins who drink from crystal clear spring fed falls.
…it can find a single grain of sand in the Sahara.
…it only eats the finest Beluga caviar.
… it could go to the moon, but decided not to.
Tell us yours! Not sure how selective our bioactive small molecules are? Check them out!
