IN SILICO DRUG DISCOVERY: OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHALLENGING TARGETS AND PROTEIN-PROTEIN INTERACTIONS

Résumé :

Drug discovery is a very a long and cost process and in silico screening approaches play a key role to facilitate the identification of new bioactive compounds for challenging targets and protein-protein interactions (PPI). Along this line, a free web-based protocol for virtual screening implemented in the freely accessible platform RPBS that includes ADME-Tox filtering (FAF-Drugs4), docking-based virtual screening (MTiOpenScreen) and a molecular mechanics optimization (AMMOS2) will be presented. We will focus on two chemical libraries dedicated to screen PPI: a virtual library iPPI-lib available at MTiOpenScreen and a chemical compound collection Fr-PPIChem available for French laboratories upon request from the consortium PPIChem. Two examples for successful application of in silico screening to discover inhibitors of PPI targeting angiogenesis will be discussed.
