ß-Arrestin/ß2-Adaptin Interaction Targeted Library
Beta-arrestins (ß-arrestin 1 and ß-arrestin 2) play central roles in the mechanisms regulating G protein-coupled receptors signalling and trafficking. They participate in agonist-mediated desensitization of GPCR and cause specific dampening of cellular responses to stimuli such as sensory signals, hormones or neurotransmitters .
OTAVAchemicals offers ß-Arrestin/ß2-Adaptin Interaction Targeted Library (1259 compounds in total). It is a special screening collection containing drug-like compounds with predicted inhibiting activity against ß-arrestin/ß2-adaptin interaction. The library has been accurately designed with two receptor-based approaches – molecular docking and pharmacophore screening.
Six pharmacophore models with different combinations of pharmacophore features and excluded volumes (on hydrogen atoms of the amino acid residues of the ß-arrestin binding site on the ß2-adaptin subunit of the clathrin adaptor protein AP2) were constructed using crystal structure of a complex between the ß2-adaptin ear domain of the AP2 and a C-terminal peptide of ß-arrestin (PDB ID: 2IV8) . Pharmacophore screening of OTAVAchemicals Drug-like Green Collection was performed against these pharmacophore models and top-scored compounds were selected. Also this collection was docked in the same crystal and compounds were selected with docking score cut-off filtering, inspection of intermolecular hydrophobic contacts and hydrogen bonds with key residues of the ß-arrestin binding site.
This library provides an excellent basis for drug discovery projects related with ß-arrestins.
All compounds are in stock, cherry-picking is available.
