GtoPdb pre-release ligands (2020.3)

These are some of the ligands under curation (pre-release) in the Guide to Pharmacology. We expect them to be available on the website at the next database release (2020.3).

Ligand ID: 10891

Name: aviptadil


Comment: Aviptadil is a vasoactive intestinal peptide analogue, VPAC1 receptor agonist.
The HELM annotation for aviptadil is PEPTIDE1{H.S.D.A.V.F.T.D.N.Y.T.R.L.R.K.Q.M.A.V.K.K.Y.L.N.S.I.L.N}$$$$.

Ligand ID: 10745

Name: MDL-28170

IUPAC: benzyl N-[(2S)-3-methyl-1-oxo-1-[[(2S)-1-oxo-3-phenylpropan-2-yl]amino]butan-2-yl]carbamate

Comment: PRD_002214 is a peptide-like inhibitor of the main protease (MPRO) of SARS-CoV-2. The structure was obtained from the RCSB Protein Data Bank entry 6LU7 which shows the ligand in complex with the protease. The article describing the work has not yet been published (March 12, 2020), but the inhibitor (also referred to as N3) has been deployed in other MPRO crystallisation studies (Yang et al. (2005)).

Ligand ID: 10752

Name: leronlimab

Comment: Leronlimab (PRO140) is a humanized anti-CCR5 (C-C motif chemokine receptor 5) monoclonal antibody [5-6]. It was originally developed by CytoDyn as a novel strategy to manage CCR5-tropic HIV infection.COVID-19: Leronlimab has been administered to a number of patients with severe COVID-19, to determine its potential to reduce cytokine storm caused by this disease.

Ligand ID: 11026

Name: meplazumab

Comment: Meplazumab is a humanized IgG2 monoclonal antibody that targets CD147 (basigin). It is being developed by Jiangsu Pacific Meinuoke Bio Pharmaceutical.

SARS-CoV-2 may utilise CD147 as an additional entry receptor to infect host cells [2]. Meplazumab can block this interaction between CD147 and SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.
