Nuclear egress is an essential process in the replication of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV), as it enables the migration of newly formed viral capsids from the nucleus into the cytoplasm. Inhibition of the HCMV core nuclear egress complex (core NEC), composed of viral proteins pUL50 and pUL53, has been proposed as a potential new target for […]

Virtual screening in lead discovery: A viewpoint


Oprea TI
Molecules - vol. 7 51-62 (2002)

Virtual screening (VS) methods have emerged as an adaptive response to massive throughput synthesis and screening technologies. Based on the structure-permeability paradigm, the Lipinski rule of five has become a standard property filtering protocol for VS. Three possible VS scenarios with respect to optimising binding affinity and pharmacokinetic properties are discussed. The parsimony principle for […]
