Molecular Chameleons in Drug Discovery

"Molecular chameleons" in drug discovery refer to compounds or molecules that possess the ability to adapt and change their structure in response to specific biological environments or targets. Similar to how a chameleon alters its color to blend in with surroundings, these dynamic molecules can modify their conformation to interact effectively with diverse biological targets, potentially enhancing drug efficacy and specificity. By mimicking the adaptability of chameleons at a molecular level, researchers aim to design innovative therapeutics that can optimize drug-target interactions, improve treatment outcomes, and advance the field of drug discovery towards more personalized and effective medicine.
