Kinase Inhibitors Can Inhibit SARS-CoV-2 Mpro: A Theoretical Study
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
inhibition constants (Ki AutoDock ) determined by AutoDock. This 3D-QSAR model was statistically validated by Fischer’s randomization test and further evaluated by a test set
comprising 75 molecules. Ki AutoDock values of 49 molecules were predicted correctly by the 3D-QSAR model. The validated 3D-QSAR model was used for screening of DrugBank library for approved molecules to identify potential molecules against novel SARS corona virus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). Ten out of 40 the shortlisted molecules were kinase inhibitors.
