Estrogens are steroid hormones playing critical roles in several physiological processes, which bind the estrogen receptors ERα and ERβ.

Abstract

Estrogens are steroid hormones playing critical roles in several physiological processes, which bind the estrogen receptors ERα and ERβ. Aim of this work is to analyze, by different docking experiments, the behavior of a set of compounds, mimicking estrogens activity, in order to understand the relationship between ERα and such new ligands. Main goal is to verify, using a widely tested scoring software procedure applied on a set of 10 compounds, the possibility to produce new lead candidate molecules in lack of, or with few experimental data. Our preliminary results reveal the significance of HINT software as a scoring function in docking methodology and specifically, as a mean for assessing the consistency of docking solutions. © 2004 Elsevier SAS.
