PMCID: 5476590
PMID: 28630414
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-04264-w

[…] adopts a particular model type: supervised learning (e.g. naïve bayes classifier, , tamosic, kernel classifiers), unsupervised learning (e.g. sea, superpred, chemprot-2.0) or structure-based (e.g. tarfisdock, invdock, pharmmapper). on the other hand, ligand-centric methods are based on calculating the similarity of a very large number of target-annotated molecules to the query molecule. […]

PMID: 28196116
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0171433

[…] to identify therapeutic targets of medicinal herbal ingredients as well as synthetic chemicals and the majority of identified therapeutic targets have been confirmed[]. in 2012, eric et al. used tarfisdock to conduct reverse docking against a pool of protein targets and identified the potential targets to rationalize the cytotoxic effects of aryl-aminopyridines and their derivatives[]. […]

PMID: 27818889
DOI: 10.1186/s40064-016-3385-9

[…] analysis were performed using the agilent feature extraction package and genespring gx v11.5.1 software, respectively., the compound c1 was submitted to various web-based inverse docking servers: tarfisdock (gao et al. ; li et al. ), drar-cpi (luo et al. ), and pharmmapper (wang et al. ; liu et al. ). these web servers selected the known target proteins within their collections to profile […]

DOI: 10.3389/fchem.2016.00015

[…] methods can interrogate any target that has at least one known ligand, target-centric models can only evaluate the typically much smaller set of targets for which a model can be built. for instance, tarfisdock (gao et al., ) predictions are limited to 1100 targets with available crystal structure and known binding site, whereas sea (keiser et al., , ) only evaluates targets with at least five […]

DOI: 10.1155/2016/2106465

[…] zhang et al. identified putative targets of 19 natural products from two medicinal plants in tcm which were used for the treatment of diabetes and inflammation using a reverse docking approach, tarfisdock server []. the natural products showed moderate inhibitory activities against the most frequent target candidate, dipeptidyl peptidase iv (dpp-iv), with ic50 values ranging from 14.14 μm […]
