We evaluate the applicability of automated molecular docking techniques and quantum mechanical calculations to the construction of a set of structures of enzyme-substrate complexes for use in Comparative binding energy (COMBINE) analysis to obtain 3D structure-activity relationships. The data set studied consists of the complexes of eighteen substrates(More)
Interactions between large biomolecules and smaller bio-active ligands are usually studied through a process called docking. Its aim is to find an energetically favorable orientation of a ligand within an active site of a biomolecule. Active sites are places where a chemical reactions take place and the role of the ligand is either to speed up, slow down or(More)
Binding of fatty acids to cryptogein, the proteinaceous elicitor from Phytophthora, was studied by using molecular docking and quantitative structure-activity relationships analysis. Fatty acids bind to the groove located inside the cavity of cryptogein. The structure-activity model was constructed for the set of 27 different saturated and unsaturated fatty(More)
