The the most up field protons of

The measurement of urease inhibitory activity by STD- NMR technique was
done using the afore mentioned technique, that is very popular in drug
discovery and possess high sensitivity hence often used for ligand –observed
NMR screening methods. In this experiment, Gaussian RF pulse was applied to the
most up field protons of the target protein which when saturated is then
transferred throughout the molecule by spin diffusion. At the final stage of
this process the bound ligands received magnetisation through cross relaxation
and enhanced signal intensity is displayed (Atia-tul_Wahab et al.2013:).

sample for this experimental process is prepared with Jack bean (Canavalia ensiformis, EC3.5,1.5) using deuterated
NMR buffer to prepare(20uM) of urease solution, which is then stored at 4 °C ligands. The reaction mixture was in excess of
100folds of urease concentration. They were dissolved in 13.3% of CD3OD, and 86.7%
deuterated phosphate buffer (4 mM, pH 6.8).

 This was followed by
STD-NMR screening experiment performed on Bruker 400MHZ NMR spectroscopy at
298K Stddiffgp19 pulse program was used for STD-NMR experiments. Saturation
time was 1.0–2.0s, while interpulse delay (D1) was the same as D20 or D20 + 1.

Loop counter was 8.0 and 4.0.

For F-NMR Technique

of the target protein is usually the first step, followed by the modification
of the protein of target by using compounds containing fluorine like 2
bromo-N-(- 4  – trifluoromethyl)
phenyl)acetamide (BTFMA) at cysteine residue which results in the presence of a
protein with active “F spin ( Horst et al, 2013;) (Kitevski et al,2012:) (
Liu  J, J et el, 2012;) making it
possible for chemical analysis to be carried out , which is normally the last
step before the process of Hit 
identification. (Norton et al, 2016;)

identification is carried out at this stage to 
for the purpose of screening F- labeled compound using ligand – observed  experience known as FBDD,that usually has an
existing library or  in the absence of
this library one can easily be made-up by adopting   similar rules to those  use in usual fragment library to sustain
ligand size and chemical variations. F- NMR as a target based protein
spectroscopy can be used to affirm the hit screening from HTS campaigns in
which a chemical assay has being used as the primary screen (Gee C.T et al, 2016:).

The proteins of targets, which are normally close to the active site, are
labeled with Fluorine atom. This technique is then preceded with the
identification and validation of the targeted resonance in the presence of the
fluorinated substrate.



In this
review we have looked at the use of protein NMR in active site mapping by using
biochemical assay, then followed by the use of STD-NMR which is a ligand
resonance based technique, for the primary identification of urease inhibitors.

Then followed by molecular docking studies to validate the biochemical
experiment as well as to estimate the relative binding affinity between the
ligand and receptor. F-NMR which is a target based resonance, coupled with hit
identification methods were also use to observe targeted ligand, screening were
carried out, confirmation of the primary screen with the use of the F atom and
its identification and validation in the presence of the fluorinated substrate
was achieved in this experiment


measurement of urease inhibitory activity by STD- NMR technique was done using Saturation
transfer differential NMR which is a ligand resonance based spectroscopic
method that is undoubtedly one of the most widely used NMR Spectroscopic technique
due to it’s ability to establish a binding relationship between the inhibitors
and protein as seen in this experiment. This technique uses the
