Marine Drugs, Vol. 20, Pages 97: Conceptual DFT-Based Computational Peptidology, Pharmacokinetics Study and ADMET Report of the Veraguamides A–G Family of Marine Natural Drugs (Marine Drugs)
 


As a continuation of our research on the chemical reactivity, pharmacokinetics and ADMET properties of cyclopeptides of marine origin with potential therapeutic abilities, in this work our already presented integrated molecular modeling protocol has been used for the study of the chemical reactivity and bioactivity properties of the Veraguamides A–G family of marine natural drugs. This protocol results from the estimation of the conceptual density functional theory (CDFT) chemical reactivity descriptors together with several chemoinformatics tools commonly considered within the process of development of new therapeutic drugs. CP-CDFT is a branch of computational chemistry and molecular modeling dedicated to the study of peptides, and it is a protocol that allows the estimation with great accuracy of the CDFT-based reactivity descriptors and the associated physical and chemical properties, which can aid in determining the ability of the studied peptides to behave as potential useful drugs. Moreover, the superiority of the MN12SX density functional over other long-range corrected density functionals for the prediction of chemical and physical properties in the presence of water as the solvent is clearly demonstrated. The research was supplemented with an investigation of the bioactivity of the molecular systems and their ADMET (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and toxicity) parameters, as is customary in medicinal chemistry. Some instances of the CDFT-based chemical reactivity descriptors’ capacity to predict the pKas of peptides as well as their potential as AGE inhibitors are also shown.
