Most standard molecular docking algorithms take into account only ligand flexibility, while numerous studies demonstrate that receptor flexibility may be also important. While some efficient methods have been proposed to take into account local flexibility of protein side chains, the influence of large-scale domain motions on the docking results still(More)
A model for the binding mode of the potent protein kinase inhibitor staurosporine is proposed. Using the information provided by the crystal structure of the cyclic-AMP-dependent protein kinase, it is suggested that staurosporine, despite a seemingly unrelated chemical structure, exploits the same key hydrogen-bond interactions as ATP, the cofactor of the(More)
This paper describes the construction, validation and application of an active site model of the serine protease thrombin. Initial use was made of medium resolution X-ray crystallographic structures of thrombin complexed with low molecular weight, non-specific inhibitors to create a computationally useable active site shell of the enzyme. Molecular(More)
