Title: Approaches to efficiently estimate solvation and explicit water energetics in ligand binding: the use of WaterMap [WaterMap and Its Implementation in Drug Discovery]

Abstract

Solvents play quite an important role in most chemical and biological processes. It is widely accepted that the presence of water or other solvents in many chemical reactions can result in much lower energy barrier. In enzymatic catalysis, water mediated reaction pathways have been observed in various studies. In addition, different conformation flexibility and hydrogen bond patterns have been discovered for cyclic peptides in the presence of membrane and water, further illustrating the impact of solvent in biological activities such like membrane penetration. moreover, as will be discussed later in this review, water also plays a critical role in host-guest chemistry and thus is essential to drug design. As such, it is not surprising that accounting for solvents is critical in drug discovery since drugs must modulate biological systems.
