Molecular Docking in Modern Drug Discovery: Principles and Recent Applications
Protocol DOI: Computational approaches are useful tools to interpret and guide experiments to expedite the antibiotic drug design process. SBDD methods analyze macromolecular target 3-dimensional structural information, typically of proteins or RNA, to identify key sites and interactions that are important for their respective biological functions. Such information can then be utilized to design antibiotic drugs that can compete with essential interactions involving the target and thus interrupt the biological pathways essential for survival of the microorganism s. LBDD methods focus on known antibiotic ligands for a target to establish a relationship between their physiochemical properties and antibiotic activities, referred to as a structure-activity relationship SAR , information that can be used for optimization of known drugs or guide the design of new drugs with improved activity.
Moreover, it presents structure- and ligand-based drug design tools to optimize known drugs and guide the design of new molecules. The book also describes methods for identifying small-molecule binding pockets in proteins, and summarizes the databases used to explore the essential properties of drugs, drug-like small molecules and their targets. In addition, the book highlights various tools to predict the absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion ADME and toxicity T of potential drug candidates. Lastly, it reviews in silico tools that can facilitate vaccine design and discusses their limitations. He received his B. Holding a Ph. He has authored numerous research articles and book chapters in the fields of medicinal research, molecular modeling, drug design, and systems biology.
China E-mail: tingjunhou zju. China E-mail: oriental-cds The identification and optimization of lead compounds are inalienable components in drug design and discovery pipelines. As a powerful computational approach for the identification of hits with novel structural scaffolds, structure-based virtual screening SBVS has exhibited a remarkably increasing influence in the early stages of drug discovery. During the past decade, a variety of techniques and algorithms have been proposed and tested with different purposes in the scope of SBVS. Although SBVS has been a common and proven technology, it still shows some challenges and problems that are needed to be addressed, where the negative influence regardless of protein flexibility and the inaccurate prediction of binding affinity are the two major challenges. Here, focusing on these difficulties, we summarize a series of combined strategies or workflows developed by our group and others.

These methods are broadly classified as either structure-based or ligand-based methods. Structure-based methods are in principle analogous to high-throughput screening in that both target and ligand structure information is imperative. Structure-based approaches include ligand docking, pharmacophore, and ligand design methods. The article discusses theory behind the most important methods and recent successful applications.
Molecular docking has become an increasingly important tool for drug discovery. In this review, we present a brief introduction of the available molecular docking methods, and their development and applications in drug discovery. The relevant basic theories, including sampling algorithms and scoring functions, are summarized. The differences in and performance of available docking software are also discussed. Flexible receptor molecular docking approaches, especially those including backbone flexibility in receptors, are a challenge for available docking methods.
Drug design , often referred to as rational drug design or simply rational design , is the inventive process of finding new medications based on the knowledge of a biological target. In the most basic sense, drug design involves the design of molecules that are complementary in shape and charge to the biomolecular target with which they interact and therefore will bind to it. Drug design frequently but not necessarily relies on computer modeling techniques.
