Study Notes

Molecular Docking in Molecular Modeling

  • Docking is a method in molecular modeling that predicts the preferred orientation of one molecule to another when a ligand and a target form a stable complex.
  • It is used to predict the strength of association or binding affinity between molecules through scoring functions.
  • Associations between biologically relevant molecules such as proteins, peptides, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids are central to signal transduction.
  • The relative orientation of interacting partners may affect the type of signal produced, such as agonism vs antagonism.
  • Docking is useful for predicting both the strength and type of signal produced in molecular interactions.
  • Molecular docking is frequently used in structure-based drug design to predict the binding conformation of small molecule ligands to the appropriate target binding site.
