In our previous report, we investigated the impact of protein flexibility and the presence of water molecules on the pose-prediction accuracy of major docking programs. To complete these investigations, we report herein a study of the impact of these two aspects on the accuracy of scoring functions. To this effect, we developed two sets of protein/ligand(More)
We report the development and validation of a novel suite of programs, FITTED 1.0, for the docking of flexible ligands into flexible proteins. This docking tool is unique in that it can deal with both the flexibility of macromolecules (side chains and main chains) and the presence of bridging water molecules while treating protein/ligand complexes as(More)
We report herein our efforts in the development of three empirical scoring functions with application in protein-ligand docking. A first scoring function was developed from 209 crystal structures of protein-ligand complexes and a second one from 946 cross-docked complexes. Tuning of the coefficients for the different terms making up these functions was(More)
HCV NS5B polymerase is a validated target for the treatment of hepatitis C, known to be one of the most challenging enzymes for docking programs. In order to improve the low accuracy of existing docking methods observed with this challenging enzyme, we have significantly modified and updated F itted 1.0, a recently reported docking program, into F itted(More)
As part of a large medicinal chemistry program, we wish to develop novel selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) as potential breast cancer treatments using a combination of experimental and computational approaches. However, one of the remaining difficulties nowadays is to fully integrate computational (i.e., virtual, theoretical) and medicinal(More)
