Fragment-based Approach to Design GPCR Ligand Service

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) are the largest family of cell surface receptors and arguably the most important family of drug targets. With the breakthrough of X-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy technology, more than 300 GPCR-ligand complex structures have been publicly reported since 2007, covering about 60 unique GPCRs. Such a wealth of structural information will undoubtedly help target GPCR to carry out structure-based drug design.

Our process

The overall process of our fragment-based GPCR ligand design method is shown in Figure 1:

  • The first step is to analyze the crystal structure of the GPCR-ligand complex to obtain CIP.
  • Then, a library of fragment-residue interaction patterns was compiled based on the docking binding patterns of known GPCR ligands.
  • After that, all interaction modes of the library are compared with the given CIP through similarity calculation. Choose these similar interaction patterns and keep the corresponding fragments.
  • The adjacent fragments on the binding interface are then assembled into small molecule ligands that can bind to proteins. After a series of analysis and filtering, certain structures with representative skeletons are screened as candidate compounds from commercial compound libraries.
