Morpholino oligonucleotides do not participate perfectly in standard Watson-Crick complexes with RNA
Xiao G, Wesolowski D, Izadjoo M, Altman S.

RNase P from E. coli will cleave a RNA at a site designated in a complex with an external guide sequence (EGS). The location of the site is determined by the Watson-Crick complementary sequence that can be formed between the RNA and the EGS. Morpholino oligonucleotides (PMOs) that have the same base sequences as any particular EGS will not direct cleavage by RNase P of the target RNA at the expected site in three mRNAs. Instead, cleavage occurs at a secondary site that does not correspond exactly to the expected Watson-Crick sequence in the PMO. This cleavage in the mRNA for a drug resistance gene, CAT mRNA, is at least second order in the concentration of the PMOs, but the mechanism is not understood yet and might be more complicated than a simple second-order reaction. EGSs and PMOs inhibit the reactions of each other effectively in a competitive fashion. A basic peptide attached to the PMO (PPMO) is more effective because of its binding properties to the mRNA as a substrate. However, a PMO is just as efficient as a PPMO on a mRNA that is mutated so that the canonical W-C site has been altered. The altered mRNA is not recognizable by effective extensive W-C pairing to an EGS or PMO. The complex of a PMO on a mutated mRNA as a substrate shows that the dimensions of the modified oligonucleotide cannot be the same as a naked piece of single-stranded RNA.


Methods for identifying candidate compounds for treating, reducing, or preventing pathogenic infections

Application WO/2005/069989
Rahme, L., Déziel, E., Lépine, F., Tompkins, R.G., Xiao, G.
September 8, 2006

Disclosed are methods for identifying candidate compounds for treating, reducing, or preventing a pathogenic infection, the methods including: (a) contacting a pathogenic cell with a candidate compound; and (b) measuring the production of a molecule selected from the group consisting of an 4-hydroxy-2-alkylquinoline (HAQ) molecule, 4-hydroxy-2-heptylquinoline (HHQ) molecule, or a derivative or precursor thereof in the cell, a candidate compound that reduces the production relative to production of the molecule by a cell not contacted with the candidate compound, identifying a candidate compound useful for treating, reducing, or preventing a pathogenic infection.

Sino-American Pharmaceutical Professionals Association (SAPA) is a major US not-for-profit organization for pharmaceutical professionals with Chinese-heritage. Founded in 1993 and headquartered in the NJ/NY/CT tri-state area, SAPA grew rapidly and has become one of the most active and well-recognized Chinese-heritage enduring professional organizations in the United States. SAPA is an independent, not-for-profit organization with nearly 4000 members in USA, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan united by a commitment to promoting pharmaceutical science and technology and their essential roles in fostering member's career development.

SAPA's New England Chapter, SAPA-NE, aims to promote pharmaceutical exchanges and cooperation in both industry and academia between China and the USA and to assist career opportunities and development for our members in New England area. SAPA-NE currently has more than 900 members, most have advanced degrees. SAPA publishes "SAPA Newsletter", organizes the annual conferences, and seminars/symposia on specific topics of scientific, technological, and professional development, hosts or co-hosts pharmaceutical forum in US and China.
