Discovery of novel influenza inhibitors targeting the interaction of dsRNA with the NS1 protein by structure-based virtual screening

, : Discovery of novel influenza inhibitors targeting the interaction of dsRNA with the NS1 protein by structure-based virtual screening. International Journal of Bioinformatics Research and Applications 6(5): 449-460

Influenza A Non-structural protein 1 (NS1A) RNA-Binding Domain (RBD) bound to a double-stranded RNA (dsRNA), which can inhibit the activation of antiviral pathway. The chemical compound binding sites at this pocket have abilities to block NS1 protein to inhibit dsRNA-dependent activation transfected beta interferon promoter construct. The molecular docking program AUTODOCK was used for virtual screening of about 200,000 compounds. Two more typical compounds were selected as the starting point for predicting binding modes. Further analysis shows that these compounds candidates of antiinfluenza drug, which provide an important reference for discovering new influenza virus drugs.

Objective. The introduction of protease inhibitors telaprevir and boceprevir in 2011 had extended the antiviral treatment options especially in genotype 1 infected hepatitis C relapsers and nonresponders to interferon/ribavirin therapy.

In Arabidopsis leaves there is a bi-phasic dose-response to applied nucleotides; i.e., lower concentrations induce stomatal opening, while higher concentrations induce closure. Two mammalian purinoceptor antagonists, PPADS and RB2, block both nucl...
