Computer prediction of a novel inhibitor binding to the JNK substrate docking site on a protein.

Advanced computing is crucial to drug discovery efforts, researchers say. Advanced computing can simulate the binding of virtual proteins and ligands, like a lock and key, allowing chemists to screen vast pools of possible compounds faster than would ever be possible in the laboratory. Shown is a computer prediction of a novel inhibitor binding to the JNK substrate docking site on a protein.
