Structure-based Drug Design
The drug design service we provide needs to meet the following conditions. Molecular docking is mainly used to determine the optimal position and orientation of small molecules in protein targets. Although the success of this method depends on the target and software, it is also associated with poor binding affinity. The quality of protein-ligand interaction can be expressed to some extent by ligand efficiency (Ligand efficiency, LE), that is, the average binding energy of each ligand's non-hydrogen atom. However, most studies of molecular docking predictions favor molecular binding to protein targets with detectable affinity and usable crystal structure.

We provide drug design services that meet the following conditions:
- Excellent steric and electronic complementarity to the target biomacromolecule is required.
- A fair amount of hydrophobic surface should be buried in the complex for tight binding.
- Sufficient conformational rigidity is essential to ensure that the loss of entropy upon ligand binding is acceptable.
- At least three additional criteria have to be taken into account in the drug design cycle.
- Chemical stability.
- Sufficient solubility in water for inhibition tests and structural studies.
- Ease of synthesis, including the avoidance of chiral centers and of 'dead-end leads' (i.e. compounds which are synthetically not easily amenable to many variations).
Our Structure-based drug design including but not limit to:
- Feasibility assessment of new drug targets.
- High-throughput screening and active compound discovery based on structural design.
- Discovery of active compounds to lead compounds.
- Optimization of lead compounds to determination of preclinical drug candidates.
- Research on structure-activity relationship.
- Computer aided drug design save a lot of labor costs.
- Short calculation period and fast speed.
- The funds required are far less than biological or chemical experiments.
- High calculation accuracy.
