(This article belongs to the Special Issue Design of Enzyme Inhibitors as Potential Drugs)
In this study, 48 inhibitors were docked to 107 allosteric centers of human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1) reverse transcriptase from the Protein Data Bank (PDB). Based on the average binding scores, quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) equations were constructed in order to elucidate directions of further development in the design of inhibitors. Such developments, informed by structural data, must have a focus on activity against mutated forms of the enzyme, which are the cause of the emergence of multidrug-resistant viral strains. Docking studies employed the HYDE scoring function. Two types of QSARs have been considered: One based on topological descriptors and the other on structural fragments of the inhibitors. Both methods gave similar results, indicating substructures favoring binding to mutated forms of the enzyme. View Full-Text
