  • An emerging oncology target, ACSS2, has been added plus two inhibitor probe compounds (example 265 and ADG-207).
  • Updates have also been made to targets across 20+ different protein families
  • Over 200 ligands are now marked as antibiotic and more than 100 of these have with links to Antibiotic DB
  • Improvements have been made to ligand summary pages. Key information, such as synonyms, curator comments, links to activity graph and SMILES and InChI Keys have been prioritised.
