Structure and ligand-binding site characteristics of the human P2Y11 nucleotide receptor deduced from computational modelling and mutational analysis

The P2Y11-R (P2Y11 receptor) is a less explored drug target. We computed an hP2Y11-R (human P2Y11) homology model with two templates, bovine-rhodopsin (2.6 A resolution; 1 A=0.1 nm) and a hP2Y1-ATP complex model. The hP2Y11-R model was refined using molecular dynamics calculations and validated by virtual screening methods, with an enrichment factor of 5.
