2007 Journal of Computer-Aided Molecular Design  
The 3D model of the I7L ligand binding site was used to perform covalent docking and VLS of a comprehensive library of about 230,000 available ketone and aldehyde compounds.  ...  These experimental results both validate our I7L ligand binding model and provide initial leads for rational optimization of poxvirus I7L proteinase inhibitors.  ...  Outside of the Poxviridae, I7L has only a distant homology to ubiquitin-like proteases (ULPs) of viral [10, 11] and eukaryotic [12] [13] [14] origin.  ...

2015 Molecules  
The present art of drug discovery and design of new drugs is based on suicidal irreversible inhibitors. Covalent inhibition is the strategy that is used to achieve irreversible inhibition.  ...  design workflows; (iv) applications covalent docking: case studies and (v) shortcomings and future perspectives of covalent docking.  ...  Lastly, authors like to acknowledge the Centre of High Performance Computing (CHPC), Capetown for financial and technical supports.  ...
