Polypharmacology plays an important role in drug discovery and polypharmacology drug strategies provide a novel path in drug design. However, to develop a polypharmacology drug with the desired profile remains a challenge. Previously, we developed a free web-accessible database called Multiple Target Ligand Database (MTLD, www.mtdcadd.com
). Herein, the MTLD database has been updated, containing 2444 Multiple Target Ligands (MTLs) that bind with 21,424 binding sites from 18,231 crystal structures. Of the MTLs, 304 entries are approved drugs, and 1911 entries are drug-like compounds. Also, we added new functions such as multiple conditional search and linkage visualization. Through querying the updated database, extremely useful information for the development of polypharmacology drugs may be provided.
