Drug repurposing for coronavirus (COVID-19): in silico screening of known drugs against coronavirus 3CL hydrolase and protease enzymes Authors:Elmezayen, Ammar D.; Al-Obaidi, Anas; Sahin, Alp Tegin; Yelekçi, Kemal
Publisher and Date:(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2020)In December 2019, COVID-19 epidemic was described in Wuhan, China, and the infection has spread widely affecting hundreds of thousands. Herein, an effort was made to identify commercially available drugs in order to repurpose them against coronavirus by the means of structure-based virtual screening. In addition, ZINC15 library was used to identify novel leads against main proteases. Human TMPRSS2 3D structure was first generated using homology modeling approach. Our molecular docking study showed ...
