UNLABELLED Structure-based virtual screening (SBVS) methods often rely on docking score. The docking score is an over-simplification of the actual ligand-target binding. Its capability to model and predict the actual binding reality is limited. Recently, interaction fingerprinting (IFP) has come and offered us an alternative way to model reality. IFP(More)
Suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA) is one of the epidrugs developed for cancer treatment that works epigenetically by inhibiting histone deacetylases (HDACs). SAHA has been reported to diffuse across the placenta and found in fetal plasma in preclinical study, implying that it can influence fetus if taken by pregnant cancer patients. However, report(More)
Structure-based virtual screening (SBVS) protocols were developed to find cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors using the Protein-Ligand ANT System (PLANTS) docking software. The directory of useful decoys (DUD) dataset for COX-2 was used to retrospectively validate the protocols; the DUD consists of 426 known inhibitors in 13289 decoys. Based on criteria(More)
