Dynamics of conserved waters in human Hsp90: implications for drug design


The flexibility of a promising protein target, human heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90), is investigated by molecular dynamics simulations. These simulations focus on: (i) the interactions between the protein and conserved water molecules; and (ii) the interactions of the ligand PU3, the conserved water molecules and the protein. This is followed by a virtual screening docking study of the PU3 family of compounds and Hsp90 incorporating several conserved water molecules
