What do docking and QSAR tell us about the design of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase nonnucleoside inhibitors?

Agata Paneth, Wojciech Płonka, Piotr Paneth


Despite vigorous studies, effective nonnucleoside inhibitors of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (NNRTIs) are still in demand, not only due to toxicity and detrimental side effects of currently used drugs but also because of the emergence of multidrug-resistant viral strains. In this contribution, we present results of docking of 47 inhibitors to 107 allosteric centers of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase. Based on the average binding scores, we have constructed QSAR equations to elucidate directions of further developments in the inhibitor design that come from this structural data.
