Evaluation and validation of synergistic effect of predicted Amyloid-Beta (Aβ) inhibitor by deep neural network.

Amyloid-beta 42 (Aβ-42) protein has been established in numerous investigations as high-profile risk factor associated with onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Extracellular senile plaques accumulation, synaptic degeneration and intracellular neurofibrillary tangles (NFT) were recorded as essential features that facilitate onset of Aβ-42 and results into AD. Hence, this study attempted a new screening technique to discover potential inhibitors against Aβ-42 by employing in silico deep neural network approach. In this method, Pubchem compounds library was screened and concluded wgx-50 as potential inhibitor of Aβ-42. Also, synergistic effect of wgx-50+gold nanoparticles (AuNP) induced significant inhibition of Aβ-42 against wgx-50 as control. Further, analysis of molecular docking, system biology approach and time course simulation revealed synergistic effect of wgx-50-AuNP complex as potential treatment for AD. Additionally, we purposed the biological circuit for the AD induced by Aβ-42 that can be employed to monitor the effect of drugs on AD.
