TCMD citations


Quantitative and Systems Pharmacology 3. Network Based Identification of New Targets for Natural Products Enables Potential Uses in Aging Associated Disorders

Front Pharmacol
PMCID: 5651538
PMID: 29093681
DOI: 10.3389/fphar.2017.00747

[…] We firstly integrated comprehensive natural products from six publically available natural product-related data sources: traditional Chinese medicine database (TCMDb) (He et al., ), Chinese natural product database (CNPD) (Shen et al., ), traditional Chinese medicine integrated database (TCMID) (Xue et al., ), tradition […]


Chinese Herbal Medicine Meets Biological Networks of Complex Diseases: A Computational Perspective

PMCID: 5485337
PMID: 28690664
DOI: 10.1155/2017/7198645

[…] k simulation, we were able to reveal the regulatory roles of herbal medicine in AA metabolic network []. Firstly, we collected 28 anti-inflammatory herbs and selected all the available molecules from Traditional Chinese Medicine Database under some criteria. The structures of key enzymes in AA network were either obtained from Protein Data Bank (PDB) or modelled. Then, we used AutoDock to investig […]


Systems Pharmacology‐Based Discovery of Natural Products for Precision Oncology Through Targeting Cancer Mutated Genes

PMCID: 5356618
PMID: 28294568
DOI: 10.1002/psp4.12172

[…] We collected drug information for natural products by integrating data from six data sources, including a traditional Chinese medicine database, Chinese natural product database, traditional Chinese medicine integrated database (TCMID), traditional Chinese medicine systems pharmacology (TCMSP), traditiona […]


Virtual screening of the inhibitors targeting at the viral protein 40 of Ebola virus

PMCID: 4757971
PMID: 26888469
DOI: 10.1186/s40249-016-0105-1

[…] originating from natural herbs that exhibit few or no side effects. TCM has been employed in China for thousands of years and remains a very successful treatment modality in the medical field []. The TCMD facilitates the virtual screening of TCM compounds. Recently, increasing efforts have been devoted to studying the importance of TCM by isolating bioactive compounds from the medicinal herbs empl […]


Identification of Novel Compounds against an R294K Substitution of Influenza A (H7N9) Virus Using Ensemble Based Drug Virtual Screening

PMCID: 4293182
PMID: 25589893
DOI: 10.7150/ijms.10826

[…] g candidates among thousand compounds. In this docking experiment, a set of 25 representative structures were utilized as receptors for ensemble based docking against selected compounds filtered from TCMD. Autodock Tools version 1.5.6rc3 was employed to merge polar hydrogen atoms, assign Gasteiger charges to each of these structures. The grid box of each conformation was created to cover all bind […]


Small molecule inhibitors of HCV replication from Pomegranate

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4067622
PMID: 24958333
DOI: 10.1038/srep05411

[…] ytic region and the substrate binding region of NS3 protease (PDB id: 1dy8-active HCV serine protease complexed with co-factor NS4A). The 3D structures of the ligand compounds were obtained from TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine) database. Protein-ligand docking was carried out using Autodock 4.2. The best ranked model with low binding energy was analyzed further and visualized using PyMOL (The Py […]
