Although the ability of olsalazine to inhibit DNMTs in biochemical assays remains to be determined, it was concluded that it is likely that the drug inhibits more than one DNMT isoform. Chemoinformatics and similarity techniques have also been used to identify new NAD+-dependent deacetylase sirtuin (SIRT) inhibitors by searching in commercial databases and subsequent docking of the hits into the binding site. These studies yielded two novel classes of inhibitors based on the high structure similarity with the compounds NSC112546 (thiobarbiturate scaffold, Figure 1) and β-phenylsplitomicin (splitomicin scaffold, Figure 1).
It is noteworthy that some of the epigenetic modulators in HEMD are not covered by the aforementioned databases, revealing it as one of the most important epigenetic databases to date. The storage of these and other databases has enhanced the knowledge of the SAR by performing the computational techniques described below. 1 Chemoinformatics Analysis and Structure Similarity Chemoinformatics, also referred to in the literature as cheminformatics or chemical information science, is one of the most recent theoretical chemistry disciplines used in drug discovery.
1 Consensus Docking VS is a robust strategy for discovering macromolecule inhibitors. This method can be divided into a series of steps that includes one of the aforementioned docking techniques. The accuracy in the calculation of affinity in these methods is closely linked to the predicted poses. A problem that might arise from this is that different poses can be associated with similar affinities, which makes it difficult to have a criterion of pose selection. , 2014). Pose prediction using docking programs has a reported success rate of approximately 59%, whereas with a combination of different methodologies, 3.
