BloodBrain: Blood Brain Barrier Data

BloodBrainR Documentation

Blood Brain Barrier Data


Mente and Lombardo (2005) develop models to predict the log of the ratio of the concentration of a compound in the brain and the concentration in blood. For each compound, they computed three sets of molecular descriptors: MOE 2D, rule-of-five and Charge Polar Surface Area (CPSA). In all, 134 descriptors were calculated. Included in this package are 208 non-proprietary literature compounds. The vector logBBB contains the concentration ratio and the data fame bbbDescr contains the descriptor values.
