Abstract:

Over the past several years, much research has centered on the development of small molecules that, through multivalent binding interactions, enhance the regulation of fundamental biological functions. The design of a wide range of potential therapeutics focuses on mimicking natural systems that control the biological effect of protein-ligand interactions through multivalency. In this review, the various approaches to achieving multivalency are discussed. Recent advances in the design of multivalent ligands are also presented.
