Otava and Life Chemicals Inc have announced the launch of Aurora B Kinase Focused Library.

This library has been created as a part of a joint project aimed at design of a large set of receptor-based sharp-focused libraries.

In the framework of this project, Life Chemicals provides its Collection of 300 000 compounds and subsequent chemical optimization.

Otava provides its drug-like Green Collection (50 000 compounds) and also is responsible for molecular modeling tasks.

Design of the focused libraries consists in Lipinsky/Veber rules filtering and flexible docking in a protein target of certain enzyme family.

Further computational analysis for the presence of critical receptor-ligand hydrogen bond(s) and docking score refinement makes the focused libraries good starting point for drug discovery purposes.

In case of this library detection of H-bonds between ligand and key Aurora B hinge region residue (Ala173) was used for its preparation.
