ProtoScore™ is a scoring function for predicting protein-ligand affinity developed as part of the ProtoDiscovery™ suite. It includes calculations for:
Version 2 of the function has been trained on a wider range of complexes including a large number of kinases. Pscore_275 was trained on 275 diverse complexes and exhibits and R² of 0.82 with a SD of 6.6kJ/mol whereas Pscore_386 was trained on 386 diverse complexes and exhibits R² of 0.71 with SD of 7.8kJ/mol.
The ProtoScore™ function operates at the heart of structure based design within ProtoDiscovery™.
