Drug discovery Molecular Weight and drug's activity: what's connection?
Hello, everyone! Do you know what is the connection between molecular weight and biological activity?
As far as I know, allergens must have a certain molecular weight for reactions to occur.
Allergens are substances of protein and polysaccharide nature with a specific molecular weight: 10-70 kDa
@argentum I have seen from my experience that the higher the weight, the stronger biological property.
@morphism This is not necessarily the case, with nanoparticles, for example, not so
For example? What did you mean?
@argentum I meant that from my experience, there was always a strong correlation between MW and some activity in data from Pubchem library e.g.
@morphism Perhaps I just know that with nanoparticles, the smaller their size, the greater the activity
