blog: when not binding to a target’s binding site is better!

Jun 22, 2016

allosteric versus orthosteric binding Most drugs bind to a target’s binding site (orthosteric binding). However, binding to a site distant from the binding site appears to have some very significant advantages over orthosteric binding, one of which is reducing off-target side-effects. Our latest labCrystal magazine describes an innovative fragment screening strategy to identify potential allost

About Us

About us

The Technology Partnership was established over 25 years ago to create a world-leading technology and development organisation. Today that enterprise has evolved and grown into TTP Group, a range of businesses focussed on meeting the needs of companies planning to flourish through the use of technology and innovation.

In keeping with the origins, the Group's companies have evolved and continue to develop break-through new products, apply the latest innovations and in many cases develop new technology to meet commercial needs.

As the enterprise has grown, new companies have been created, some of which have remained within TTP Group, while others have been sold, demerged or floated on the London Stock Exchange.

The following gives a short overview of some of the highlights in the history of the formation of the companies of TTP Group.
