Prasanth Chikungunya Viral nsP4

  1. 1. Exploring the Polymerase Activity of Chikungunya Viral non structural Protein 4 (nsP4) using Molecular Modeling, e-Pharmacophore and Docking Studies S. Prasanth Kumar, Ravi G. Kapopara, Yogesh T. Jasrai and Himanshu A. Pandya Department of Bioinformatics, ABC, Gujarat University, Ahmedabad- 380009.Graphical AbstractChikungunya viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) activity is conferred by nonstructural protein 4 (nsp4), an important protein target towards the development of antiviralcompounds. The present study deals about the development of homology model of nsP4followed by molecular docking with known RdRp inhibitors experimented in Hepatitis C virus(HCV), HIV-1, Paramyxovirus, etc. The predicted catalytic site and two allosteric binding siteswere docked with nucleosidic and non-nucleosidic inhibitors. The best top five scoring ligandswere selected based upon the interaction profiles and a common pharmacophore was developed.Copyrighted Material.
