Work package 1

The main objective of WP1 is to provide protein kinase inhibitors and/or activators from plant, fungal and cyanobacterial sources.

The libraries of natural extracts from various sources will be screened for bioactivity against various protein kinases. The active components will be purified and their structures solved. The structures will be screened virtually for their possible interaction with other protein kinases within work package 2.
