SARS-CoV-2 Targeted Libraries

SARS-CoV-2 Targeted LibrariesThe pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a serious global concern for public health with thousands of fatalities. Today, no specific drugs are available to treat this disease. Thus, there remains an urgent need for the development of specific antiviral therapeutics toward SARS-CoV-2.

OTAVAchemicals offers SARS-CoV-2 Targeted Libraries, which contain compounds with predicted activity against SARS-CoV-2: 

  • SARS-CoV-2 Main Protease Targeted Library (1017 compounds);
  • ML (Machine Learning) SARS Targeted Library (1577 compounds).

The SARS-CoV-2 Main Protease Targeted Library has been designed with receptor-based virtual screening using crystal structure (PDB ID: 6LU7) of SARS-CoV-2 main protease (3C-like proteinase, 3CLpro, Mpro). The overall procedure included accurate flexible docking of Drug-like Green Collection into protease cleavage site. Final selection of compounds was made with inspection of enzyme active site’s crucial structural determinants for ligand binding, docking scores and intermolecular hydrogen bonds with key active site’s amino acid residues.

The ML SARS Targeted Library has been carefully designed using machine learning (artificial neural networks and Bayesian statistics).

For machine learning 306 compounds with anti-SARS activity were randomly divided into two equal groups. Each group had the same amounts of active and inactive compounds and was used as training and test set. The training sets were used for development of Bayesian and artificial neural networks models. Both methods were based on a number of different molecular descriptors - fingerprints, molecular weight, number of hydrogen acceptors and donors, number of rings, number of rotatable bonds, LogP, PSA, topological descriptors and other. The test sets were used for validation of all models.

Virtual screenings of Drug-like Green Collection toward best Bayesian and artificial neural networks models were performed. Top-scored compounds, selected by machine learning methods, were visually analyzed. The application of number different artificial neural networks and models (21 in total) should allow increasing the number of active compounds identified during screenings.

The designed SARS-CoV-2 Targeted Libraries comprise only drug-like compounds (PAINS compounds are filtered off). The libraries are intended for screening projects to find new compounds with activity against SARS-CoV-2.


All compounds are in stock, cherry-picking is available.
