Blind Dockings of Benzothiazoles to Multiple Receptor Conformations of Triosephosphate Isomerase from Trypanosoma cruzi and Human Authors:Kurkcuoglu, Zeynep; Ural, Gulgun; Akten, Ebru Demet; Doruker, Pemra
Publisher and Date:(Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH, 2011)We aim to uncover the binding modes of benzothiazoles which have been reported as specific inhibitors of triosephosphate isomerase from the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi (TcTIM) by performing blind dockings on both TcTIM and human TIM (hTIM). Detailed analysis of binding sites and specific interactions are carried out based on ensemble dockings to multiple receptor conformers obtained from molecular dynamics simulations. In TcTIM dimer dockings the inhibitors preferentially bind to the tunnel-shaped ...
