ADL: Binding affinity contributions

Fri Jun 28 00:08:16 PDT 2013

Dear Friends,

I am performing docking study of Cu-complex with G-quadruplex using Autodock Vina. For one of my lignads the calculated binding affinity is -7.5 kcal/mol.

(a Is it possible to know the contribulations of hydrophobic, hydrogen bonding etc to the calculated binding affinity in terms of energy, e.g., how much kcal/mol is contributed to -7.5 kcal/mol due to hydrogen bonding?

(b) what is the physical meaning of gauss1 and gauss2?

(c) Is Vina program considered the electrostatic interactions?

Thanks a lot for your kind helps and valuable time.

Warm regards
