Application of a post-docking procedure based on MM-PBSA and MM-GBSA on single and multiple protein conformations



Application of a post-docking procedure based on MM-PBSA and MM-GBSA on single and multiple protein conformations



European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry 58: 431-440



In the last decades, molecular docking has emerged as an increasingly useful tool in the modern drug discovery process, but it still needs to overcome many hurdles and limitations such as how to account for protein flexibility and poor scoring function performance. For this reason, it has been recognized that in many cases docking results need to be post-processed to achieve a significant agreement with experimental activities. In this study, we have evaluated the performance of MM-PBSA and MM-GBSA scoring functions, implemented in our post-docking procedure BEAR, in rescoring docking solutions. For the first time, the performance of this post-docking procedure has been evaluated on six different biological targets (namely estrogen receptor, thymidine kinase, factor Xa, adenosine deaminase, aldose reductase, and enoyl ACP reductase) by using i) both a single and a multiple protein conformation approach, and ii) two different software, namely AutoDock and LibDock. The assessment has been based on two of the most important criteria for the evaluation of docking methods, i.e., the ability of known ligands to enrich the top positions of a ranked database with respect to molecular decoys, and the consistency of the docking poses with crystallographic binding modes. We found that, in many cases, MM-PBSA and MM-GBSA are able to yield higher enrichment factors compared to those obtained with the docking scoring functions alone. However, for only a minority of the cases, the enrichment factors obtained by using multiple protein conformations were higher than those obtained by using only one protein conformation.
