De Novo Design of Anti-COVID Drugs Using Machine Learning-Based Equivariant Diffusion Model Targeting the Spike Protein, Current Issues in Molecular Biology, doi:10.3390/cimb45050271 ,
The drug discovery and research for an anti-COVID-19 drug has been ongoing despite repurposed drugs in the market. Over time, these drugs were discontinued due to side effects. The search for effective drugs is still under process. The role of Machine Learning (ML) is critical in the search for novel drug compounds. In the current work, using the equivariant diffusion model, we built novel compounds targeting the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2. Using the ML models, 196 de novo compounds were generated which had no hits on any major chemical databases. These novel compounds fulfilled all the criteria of ADMET properties to be lead-like and drug-like compounds. Of the 196 compounds, 15 were docked with high confidence in the target. These compounds were further subjected to molecular docking, the best compound having an IUPAC name of (4aS,4bR,8aS,8bS)-4a,8a-dimethylbiphenylene-1,4,5,8(4aH,4bH,8aH,8bH)-tetraone and a binding score of −6.930 kcal/mol. The principal compound is labeled as CoECG-M1. Density Function Theory (DFT) and Quantum optimization was carried out along with the study of ADMET properties. This suggests that the compound has potential drug-like properties. The docked complex was further subjected to MD simulations, GBSA, and metadynamics simulations to gain insights into the stability of binding. The model can be in the future modified to improve the positive docking rate.
