Covalent-modifier drugs form practical bioinformatics michael agostino pdf download covalent bond with a residue of their target. Computational methods for modeling covalent-modifier drugs are reviewed. Structural and bioinformatic analysis has identified specific, druggable residues. Many docking programs can predict the binding pose of a covalently-bound drug.

Quantum chemical methods can reveal the mechanism of covalent modification. In this review, we present a summary of how computer modeling has been used in the development of covalent-modifier drugs. Covalent-modifier drugs bind by forming a chemical bond with their target. This covalent binding can improve the selectivity of the drug for a target with complementary reactivity and result in increased binding affinities due to the strength of the covalent bond formed. Computer modeling is widely used in drug discovery, but different computational methods must be used to model covalent modifiers because of the chemical bonds formed. Structural and bioinformatic analysis has identified sites of modification that could yield selectivity for a chosen target. MM methods have been used to model the reaction mechanisms of covalent modification.

The continued development of these tools will allow computation to aid in the development of new covalent-modifier drugs. This article is part of a Special Issue entitled: Biophysics in Canada, edited by Lewis Kay, John Baenziger, Albert Berghuis and Peter Tieleman.
