PMCID: 3524943
PMID: 23275691
DOI: 10.6026/97320630008980

[…] from 7 different plants are shown in the (see supplementary material). the top 10 compounds were further docked against aldose reductase using 5 others docking programs gold, patchdock, ehits, medock and autodock vina. the docking scores of the 10 best compounds attained using different software are listed in (see supplementary material). each docking program is listing different compound […]

[…] is a widely used approach to improve the scoring reliability and hit rate in virtual screening and four standalone programs (gold, molegro, autodock and e-hits) and two online servers (patchdock and medock) are utilized to rank top hits. allium38 ranked high and reported to be the best compound that can bind with high affinity to aldose reductase enzyme. allium38 resulted in best hits […]

[…] evolution processes to search conformations of complex targets and chemical structures, are commonly used in docking protocols, such as autodock []. chang et al. have offered a better alternative, medock []. although medock did not completely exploit entropic-based inductive inference for searching, it does utilize the maximum entropy principle as a guideline to make decisions […]

[…] (wiederstein and sippl, ). the best model was used for substrate docking. furthermore, the quality of the protein model was tested using the program prosa. substrate docking was performed using medock. pdb files of all proteins were translated into pdbq files using the pdb2pqr server. for substrate docking prediction, the nucleotide-binding folds (nbfs) were removed. all loops connecting […]
