[…] molecules are generally referred to as test and training sets, respectively. there are fewer methods in the ligand-centric category and these are based on molecular similarity (e.g., chemmapper, electroshape polypharmacology server) or on the similarity of bioactivity spectra (e.g. compare). it is worth noting that not all methods employing molecular similarity are ligand-centric. […]

[…] usr method by including chemical parameters. usrcat is an extension of usr including pharmacophoric information whilst retaining the performance of the original model. other method based on usr is electroshape, that incorporates the molecular charge distribution. as a result, the new method increases the number of descriptors from 12 to 15, thus decreasing the screening speed by a 25%.

[…] smiles, which is a simple line notation. for each of these smiles, 3d conformational models were generated, so that each compound is represented as a set of low-energy conformations. from these, electroshape descriptors were created that enable the fast database searching. standard partial charge parameters for the electrostatic component were used as described [–]. potential targets also […]

[…] are some significant prior works that compare electrostatic potentials and other molecular interaction fields for proteins only –, , ., elekit was also inspired by the commercial tools eon – and electroshape . in effect, these tools can assess similarity of electrostatic potentials. however, they work exclusively on small molecules. thus, they can identify compounds similar to a known small […]
