This tutorial continues where we left off from the virtual screening of 1S19, a structure of the vitamin D nuclear receptor bound to the side chain analogue calcipotriol.

Focused Denovo Design with PDB 1S19

In this section, we will generate new ligand structures using a fragment library. It will require the use of some of the output files from the Virtual Screen tutorial (found here).

Fragment Libraries

We will use a focused fragment library file based on the original ligand. To begin, we will create a new directory for this.

mkdir fraglib

Create a new file called fragment.in with the following inputs.

conformer_search_type                                        flex

rank_ligands                                                 no

To run this, type:

dock6 -i fragment.in -o fragment.out

Once this has ran, the following files should have been generated: fraglib_linker.mol2, fraglib_rigid.mol2, fraglib_scaffold.mol2, fraglib_sidechain.mol2, fraglib_torenv.dat. To check the number of fragments in each file, you can type:

grep -wc MOLECULE *.mol2

You should get the following output upon using this command:


These fragments can also be visualized in Chimera. The results are shown below.

2p16 fragments. The left image is the side chain fragments. The center are the scaffold fragments and the right is the linker.
