This session considers how computational approaches can lead to increased understanding of small molecule-protein interactions, which may then lead to development of new drug candidates. The specific case of antiandrogen therapy used as a treatment for prostate cancer is described using structural data available from the Protein Data Bank.
The laboratory involves downloading and viewing the metribolone-human androgen receptor complex from the Protein Data Bank. The metribolone molecule is then replaced with testosterone, Casodex, and Eulexin and the relative stability of each complex is calculated.
