We explore the ability of four quantum mechanical (QM)/molecular mechanical (MM) models to accurately identify the native pose of six HIV-1 protease inhibitors and compare them with the AMBER force field and ChemScore and GoldScore scoring functions. Three QM/MM scoring functions treated the ligand at the HF/6-31G*, AM1d, and PM3 levels; the fourth QM/MM(More)
A set of iron parameters for use in the semiempirical PM3 method have been developed to allow the structure and redox properties of the active sites of iron-containing proteins to be accurately modeled, focussing on iron-sulfur, iron-heme, and iron-only hydrogenases. Data computed at the B3LYP/6-31G* level for a training set of 60 representative complexes(More)
