Novel Class IIa Selective Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors Discovered Using an in Silico Virtual Screening Approach

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5468338
PMID: 28607401
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-03417-1

[…] potent than their hydroxamate counterparts. Therefore, discovery of new, effective and selective ZBG for class IIa HDAC inhibitors have important therapeutic applications.This study used the PDB and MetLigDB databases to obtain structures of available proteins and ligands. Our experimental results revealed six new compounds displaying strong inhibition of HDAC4, HDAC5 and HDAC9. Because the study […]


Minimal Functional Sites in Metalloproteins and Their Usage in Structural Bioinformatics

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 4881497
PMID: 27153067
DOI: 10.3390/ijms17050671

[…] this important feature even if they include metals and metal-containing cofactors in their content, because coordination geometry is not relevant for organic molecules [,]. An interesting resource is MetLigDB, a publicly accessible web-based database focused on the interaction between organic ligands and metals in in the active site of metalloproteins []. The scope of MetLigDB is significantly dif […]
