Potential for Anti-Chagas Therapies Using Structure-based Drug Design

Results of the TcSpdSyn-ligand docking analysis. Docking poses of the top five compounds (green: docking results, pink: dcSAM). This simulation was conducted with the TcSpdSyn X-ray structure (PDB ID code: 3BWC). The docking results show that all compounds bind to the putrescine-binding site and that dcSAM binding in its own site. Credit: Yoshino, R. et al. Sci Rep.
