Library Design Principles

Library Compounds

  • The UC/GRI Compound Library is comprised of compounds from four general categories:

    • 1. Compounds purchased from numerous sources selected to provide a diverse representation across “drug-like” structural properties.
    • 2. Compounds purchased that specifically target kinases and GPCRs
    • 3. Compounds prepared in-house specifically for projects in kinases, GPCRs, phosphatases, ion channels and proteases donated from P&G Pharmaceuticals.
    • 4. Combinatorial Chemistry contract syntheses (Lower Priority Cmpds).
  • This screening library is broadly diverse across drug-like space, with enhanced concentrations in areas of key biological relevance, including notably, kinases and GPCRs.

P&G Pharma Selected Compounds

  • Chemically Diverse

    • Represented uniformly across drug-like space.
    • Want to ensure uniform, comprehensive and diverse representation of compounds across the structural & property types that are typical of drugs and lead structures.
  • Compounds selected based on drug like properties (within “Drug-Like Space”)

  • Total P&G investment to assemble repository = $22 M (over past 10 years)

Diversity Analysis

Describing Molecular Structure

Diversity Assessment Methodology

  • Used BCUT descriptors *

    • R.S. Pearlman, UT at Austin
    • DiverseSolutions (now available from Tripos)
  • Computed ~120 BCUTs

  • Selected a best subset of 6 BCUTs

    • 6D space – visualization is a challenge

Pearlman’s BCUT descriptors *

  • 6D Chem-space (structure-space)

    • 2 atomic partial-charge descriptors
    • 2 atomic polarizability descriptors
    • a hydrogen-bond acceptor descriptor
    • a hydrogen-bond donor descriptor

Concept of Chemistry Space

Defining Drug Space

  • Based on structures of “drug-like” compounds from

      • The World Drug Index (WDI)
      • The Nation Cancer Institute Open Database

Diverse Subset Selection

Compound Supply

  • External Suppliers (20+ vendors)

    • Brokerage Houses
    • Combinatorial Chemistry Companies
  • Corporate Suppliers

    • P&G Pharmaceuticals
      • Focus Areas - Medicinal Chemistry
      • Lead ID – Combinatorial Chemistry

Vendor “Dependability”

On the Other Hand…

  • Even within Drug-like space, certain classes can be somewhat clustered.

  • This library therefore has added “focused libraries” from internal synthesis and external vendors emphasizing compounds relevant to:

    • GPCRs
    • Kinases

P&G Pharma Selected Compounds

  • Defined by experienced medicinal chemists

    • Broad, uniform distribution across Drug Space with concentrations of density in key areas from directed purchase and in house synthesis.
  • Compare to 5 vendor screening collections

    • 3,000 to 500,000 compounds
    • 27% - 56% of vendors’ compound collections do NOT meet criteria for drug-like
    • UC Compound collection is 2X to 100X more chemically diverse across Drug Space.
  • Vendor Libraries are inherently predisposed to clustered groupings.

  • We can pick the best, most relevant compounds from each.

Screening Library Options

Screening Library Design Options

  • Diverse broad collections

    • Comprehensive screening against all available compounds (ca. 250,000 cmpds)
    • Screening against a representative subset of available compounds (e.g. 5000 cmpds)
  • Class-associated compounds

    • Compounds with structural features often associated with a particular target (e.g. kinases).
  • Structure-based compound selection

    • Virtual Screening of a crystal structure or high quality homology model to identify the most likely inhibitors (ca. 2000 cmpds), followed by assay of these compounds.
    • Virtual Screening as above based on pharmacophore models from known ligands of the target.

Hit to Lead Follow-up (H2L)

Hit to Lead Follow-up (H2L)

  • How to determine optimal hits for follow-up

    • Confirm ID and activity of hits
    • Cluster into groups of related compounds
    • Develop preliminary SAR info on each cluster
    • Assess Each Cluster for optmization
      • “Which compounds have fewest problems?”
      • Synthetic Ease
      • Proprietary Assessment
      • Selectivity Issues
      • Physical Properties
      • Metabolic Handles
      • Cellular Activity


UC/P&GP Library Advantages

  • Quality Advantages

    • Library carefully constructed to span drug-like space.
    • Compounds restricted to those with properties consistent with clinical materials.
    • Proven to produce viable hits for follow-up programs.
    • Comparisons have uniformly been favorable relative to commercial vendor sets.
    • Includes targeted subsets of compounds for key areas: GPCRs, Kinases, Phosphatases, Ion channels.
  • Practical Advantages

    • SD file of structures and ID tags furnished for unrestricted use.
    • Many compounds from commercial sources, so resupply likely to be easy.
    • Materials supplied in microtiter plates (96 or 384) as requested.
    • Solution Stores made from local dry stores, so follow-up assays will be rapid.
  • Technical Advantages

    • Act as Liaison with screening group (internal or external).
    • Participate in advisory committee for compound acquisition decisions.

Library Use and Data Interpretation

  • Library Design Assistance

    • Computational assistance in selecting diverse subsets or directed subsets.
    • Computational assistance in selecting compounds similar to known leads (Nearest Neighbor).
    • Computational assistance in virtual screening by pharmacophore or protein docking.

Library Use and Data Interpretation

  • Follow-up Assistance

    • Resupply assistance, synthesis info, supplier info
    • Assistance in obtaining related available compounds (Similarity, substructure, Unity, Pharmacophore).
    • Provide preliminary lit search info (known info, IP, etc) on prominent hits.
    • Clustering of hits into chemical/pharmacophore classes included.
    • Provide help identifying chemistry groups with related interests for collaborations
    • Provide assistance in connecting with contract chemistry services (consult).
