Dealing with receptor flexibility in docking methodology is still a problem. The main reason behind this difficulty is the large number of degrees of freedom that have to be considered in this kind of calculations. In this paper, we present an automated procedure, called MADAMM, that allows flexibilization of both the receptor and the ligand during a multistaged docking with an automated molecular modeling protocol. We show that the orientation of particular residues at the interface between… Expand

Accounting for loop flexibility during protein–protein docking
TLDR
This paper reports the first docking method that allows large loop movements during a systematic exploration of the possible arrangements of the two partners in terms of position and rotation and shows that introducing loop flexibility on the isolated protein form during systematic docking largely improves the predictions of relative position of the partners in comparison with rigid‐body docking.

Molecular docking to ensembles of protein structures.
TLDR
Two related methods for molecular docking are described that utilize information on conformational variability from ensembles of experimental receptor structures, and it is shown that experimentally determined binding orientations and computed energies of known ligands can be reproduced accurately.

Evaluation of docking performance: comparative data on docking algorithms.
TLDR
This methodology focused on the top-ranked pose, with the underlying assumption that the orientation/conformation of the docked compound is the most accurate, and a correspondence between the nature of the active site and the best docking algorithm can be found. Expand
Receptor flexibility in de novo ligand design and docking.

An algorithm for integrating protein binding-site flexibility into de novo ligand design and docking processes and allows dynamic rearrangement of amino acid side chains during the docking and design simulations is presented. Expand
Implicit flexibility in protein docking: Cross‐docking and local refinement
TLDR
Analysis shows that although MD simulations are able to improve sidechain packing across the interface, which results in an increased fraction of native contacts, they are not capable of improving interface and ligand backbone RMSD for NN structures beyond 1.5 and 3.5 Å. Expand
Development and validation of a genetic algorithm for flexible docking.

GOLD (Genetic Optimisation for Ligand Docking) is an automated ligand docking program that uses a genetic algorithm to explore the full range of ligand conformational flexibility with partial flexibility of the protein, and satisfies the fundamental requirement that the ligand must displace loosely bound water on binding.

A combinatorial approach to protein docking with flexible side-chains
TLDR
An approach that allows conformational flexibility for the side—chains while keeping the protein backbone rigid is described, starting from candidates created by a rigid docking algorithm, thus creating reasonable approximations of the true complex structure. Expand

TLDR
The work illustrates that the assumption of a rigid active site can lead to errors in identification of the correct binding mode and the assessment of binding affinity, even for enzymes which show relatively small shift in atomic positions from one ligand to the next. Expand

TLDR
An algorithm is described that explores the conformational degrees of freedom of the amino acid side-chains and of the ligand when docking a putative ligand into a receptor site to illustrate how such a procedure can be used to estimate the conformations change that accompanies the formation of an intermolecular complex between a protein and a ligand.

Molecular modelling prediction of ligand binding site flexibility
TLDR
For most proteins that exhibit limited backbone motion, ligands tend to bind to low energy conformations of their binding sites, and it is possible in most cases to use a rotamer search-based approach to predict alternative low-energy protein binding site conformations that can be used by different ligands.
