Publisher and Date:(Springer, 2017)In a first step in the discovery of novel potent inhibitor structures for the PDE4B family with limited side effects we present a protocol to rank newly designed molecules through the estimation of their IC values. Our protocol is based on reproducing the linear relationship between the logarithm of experimental IC values [(IC)] and their calculated binding free energies (). From 13 known PDE4B inhibitors we show here that (1) binding free energies obtained after a docking process by AutoDock are ...

Publisher and Date:(Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH, 2012)In this study pharmacophore modelling was carried out for novel PhosphodiesteraseIV (PDEIV) inhibitors. A pharmacophore-based virtual screening which resulted in 1959 hit compounds was performed with six chemical databases. The pharmacophore screening was proven to be successful in discriminating active and inactive inhibitors using a set of compounds with known activity obtained from ChEMBL database. Furthermore the Lipinskis rule of five was applied for physicochemical filtering of the hit ...
