Molecular Libraries and Imaging
The Molecular Libraries Probe Production Centers Network (MLPCN) of the Molecular Libraries and Imaging program is a nationwide consortium of small molecule screening centers that are producing innovative chemical tools for use in biological research. These chemical tools, or probes, can be used to explore biological function of target proteins and as launching points for lead optimization discovery. A list of probes can be found at: http://mli.nih.gov/mli/.
The program is also enhancing the discovery and availability of small molecules for imaging of molecules or molecular events in biological systems that span the scale from single cells to whole organisms. The Imaging Probe Development Center (IPDC) offers the production of known imaging probes for the research community in cases where there is no viable commercial supplier, and generates novel imaging probes for biomedical research and clinical applications.
The Molecular Libraries Probe Production Centers Network (MLPCN) has established a collection of thousands of chemically diverse small molecules, some of which have known biological activities and others of which have the potential to modulate novel biological functions. All of the screening results from the MLPCN are placed into a public database called PubChem, a comprehensive database of chemical structures and their biological activities developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information at NIH. PubChem includes information about chemical compounds that is made available to all researchers, in both public and private sectors, for their use in studying biology and disease. PubChem houses both compound information from the scientific literature as well as screening and probe data from the MLPCN. Another database, the Molecular Imaging and Contrast Agent Database (MICAD) is a source of information regarding molecular imaging and contrast agents that have in vivo data (animal or human) published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
