CambridgeSoft to Develop, Market Molecular Connections' NetPro Database

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — CambridgeSoft will develop, market, and sell Indian informatics company Molecular Connections’ NetPro database, the companies said today.
NetPro contains information on small-molecule interactions collected from literature that is relevant to drug interactions, metabolism, enzyme kinetics, and potential therapeutic agents.
Under the agreement, Cambridge, Mass.-based CambridgeSoft will use its ChemOffice technology to develop a version of NetPro that is searchable by chemical structure.
Bangalore, India-based Molecular Connections' NetPro includes small molecules in a number of categories, including metabolites, physiologically available bioactive molecules, ligands, enzyme activators and inhibitors, agonists and antagonists, and bio-hazardous molecules such as allergens, carcinogens, and toxicants.
The companies said the integrated product will allow chemists to find information on nearly 86,000 small-molecule interactions.
