The IUPHAR/BPS Guide to PHARMACOLOGY in 2018: new features and updates 1. Introduction The IUPHAR/BPS Guide to PHARMACOLOGY (GtoPdb) is an open, expert-driven database of pharmacological targets and the substances that act on them [1]. It is a joint initiative between the British Pharmacological Society (BPS) and the International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (IUPHAR), which aims to cover the human targets of licensed drugs and other likely targets of future therapeutics. The information is presented at two levels: 1. Overviews of the key properties, selective ligands and further reading for a wide range of human biological targets, which forms the basis for the Concise Guide to PHARMACOLOGY (CGTP) [2]. 2. Detailed pharmacological, functional and clinical information for a subset of important targets. All data are curated from the primary literature by an international network of 500 experts in 96 subcommittees of the IUPHAR Committee on Receptor Nomenclature and Drug Classification (NC-IUPHAR). ~1,700 established or potential data-supported drug targets ~1,100 additional related proteins Across several target classes: GPCRs, NHRs, Enzymes, Ion-Channels, Catalytic Receptors, Transporter and other protein targets Various search tools are available to find targets and ligands by name, ID, reference, chemical structure similarity, or BLAST sequence search. A new Pharmacology Search Tool (Fig. 2) allows users to upload lists of protein IDs and find ligands that modulate them, from both the GtoPdb and ChEMBL [3] databases. 1. Harding SD, et al. (2018).

IUPHAR Guide to Immunopharmacology Launched in October 2018, the Wellcome Trust-funded IUPHAR Guide to Immunopharmacology (GtoImmuPdb; extends the information stored about drug targets by associating them with processes, cell types and disease of relevance to immunology. Providing a knowledge base that, for the first time, connects immunology with pharmacology [4]. Simon D. Harding1, Jane F. Armstrong1 , Elena Faccenda1, Adam J. Pawson1, Joanna L.

IUPHAR/MMV Guide to Malaria Pharmacology Curently 40 curated structures linked to PubChem, for example cipargamin (above, right: shows curated comments on ligand summary view) PubChem SID 374883822. Public beta-release planned for January 2019 @GuidetoPHARM 4. Comparing ligand affinity across species Ligand activity graphs provide a quick way to visualise affinity at different targets and across species. Box plots (Fig. 2A) summarise standardised activity data from GtoPdb and ChEMBL [3]. Individual data points, assay details and references are provided in an accompanying table (Fig. 2B). Figure 2.

Downloading data Data are available to download in various formats: • Lists of targets, ligands and interactions in CSV format • REST web services for computational access to data in JSON format • SQL database dump files • Interaction data are now available in RDF format for semantic integration ~9,400 ligands, over 7,000 with quantitative interaction data Includes experimental compounds, labelled ligands, antibodies, peptides, natural products and inorganic chemicals > 1,300 approved drugs, >800 with quantitative interaction data Figure 1.

Results from searches can be downloaded as a CSV file by clicking the Download button in the top right. l 540 targets and over 1,000 ligands of relevance to immunopharmacology. l 700 associations between ligands and disease l 3,000 target to immuno process associations l 300 target to cell type associations This expert curation seeks to bring the most valuable pharmacological data into the hands of immunology researchers, facilitating the crossover of their research into drug discovery and therapeutics A B Above, the portal; left, showing ligand data on disease summary (Psoriasis) pages; and below, browsing immune system cell types. We especially thank all contributors, collaborators and NC-IUPHAR members Since October 2017, collaboration between IUPHAR and Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV) [5] to curate antimalarial compounds and Plasmodium molecular targets for approved drugs. To provide optimised access to GtoPdb data for the malaria research community.
