Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Through a computational approach, five new compounds with potent and selective Rac inhibitory activity were identified. In particular, compound 4 was shown to selectively inhibit Rac activity in a concentration-dependent manner by affecting the GEF-dependent GDP-GTP exchange. This compound was more potent than the original inhibitors previously identified.
