A computationally driven analysis of the polyphenol protein interactome

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5797150
PMID: 29396566
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-20625-5

[…] al data on polyphenol-protein complexes deposited in the Protein Data Bank (PDB) is <100. Protein interactions with curcumin, also a known polyphenol in the class of ‘Other polyphenols’ (according to Phenol-Explorer), were below STITCH’s evidence score of 0.9, and thus were not selected. Most polyphenol-interacting proteins (95%) interact with <5 polyphenols. A few proteins (12) were found to inte […]


In silico approach for the discovery of new PPARγ modulators among plant derived polyphenols

PMID: 26604687
DOI: 10.2147/DDDT.S93449

[…] igand compounds predicts the best interaction mode for a defined binding site., In the current study, hPPARγ was docked with two sets of compounds: the first contained 924 molecules registered in the Phenol Explorer database as phenolic compounds, and the second set includes 10,437 compounds with structural similarity to scutellarin (, of which 1,085 comply with Lipinski’s Rul […]

New Biomarkers of Coffee Consumption Identified by the Non Targeted Metabolomic Profiling of Cohort Study Subjects

PLoS One
PMCID: 3979684
PMID: 24713823
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0093474

[…] were queried to hypothesize identities. In addition, a customized in-house database on coffee phytochemical metabolites was used, comprising all phytochemicals reported in coffee according to Phenol-Explorer (, Duke's Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical Database (, the Dictionary of Natural Products, KNApSAcK and a literature survey, […]
