KNIME workflows developed in the 3D-e-Chem project using KNIME nodes developed in the 3D-e-Chem project.

The 3D-e-Chem KNIME nodes are part of the Community contributions. The community contribution software site is disabled by default, it can be enabled by in KNIME menu going to File>Preferences>Install/Update>Available software sites and checking the checkbox of the Stable Community Contributions software site.

The workflows can be imported into KNIME by importing each KNIME archive file (*.knwf). Before importing make sure the community contribution software site has been enabled, otherwise the 3D-e-Chem KNIME nodes will not be found automatically.

The Pymol session files (*.pse) can by opened with PyMol.

Chemical Diversity in the G Protein-Coupled Receptor Superfamily

Below is the workflow for the chemical diversity of GPCR ligands as shown in Figure 1 and Table 1 in Chemical Diversity in the G Protein-Coupled Receptor Superfamily (doi:10.1016/j.tips.2018.02.004).

GPCR chemical diversity workflow

This extensive workflow compares all co-crystallized GPCR ligands (taken from GPCRdb) to the known GPCR ligands (taken from ChEMBL) and assesses: i) the number of ligands of a specific crystallized GPCR similar to its co-crystallized ligands, ii) the number of ligands of a specific crystallized GPCR similar to co-crystallized ligands of any GPCR, iii) the number of ligands of other GPCRs that are similar to the co-crystallized ligands of a specific receptor, iv) the number of ligands of other GPCR subfamilies that are similar to the co-crystallized ligands of a specific receptor.

3D-e-Chem: Structural Cheminformatics Workflows for Computer-Aided Drug Discovery

Below are the workflows shown in Figures 2 - 6 of 3D-e-Chem: Structural Cheminformatics Workflows for Computer-Aided Drug Discovery (doi:10.1002/cmdc.201700754).

PLANTS docking example workflow

The initialization and combination of PLANTS KNIME nodes for docking runs requires great care. Therefore, an example docking workflow is available here:

3D-e-Chem-VM: Structural Cheminformatics Research Infrastructure in a Freely Available Virtual Machine paper

Below are the workflows mentioned in the 3D-e-Chem-VM: Structural Cheminformatics Research Infrastructure in a Freely Available Virtual Machine paper.

KNIME workflow archive files ending with _small.knwf are workflows with most nodes collapsed into metanodes. The files ending with _full.knwf are workflows mostly without metanodes.

Chemdb4VS

Customizable KNIME workflow to extract GPCR ligands from ChEMBL and preparation for virtual screening.

GPCR-kinase

Workflow to analyze the binding site similarity between all crystallized GPCRs and kinases. PDB IDs are fetched through GPCRdb and KLIFS nodes, and the KRIPO nodes are used to select similar binding pockets and to add ligand structures.

A Pymol session file called jcim/GPCR-kinase.pse is stored next to this workflow.

GCRPDB_example

This example fetches the residues, structures, protein-ligand interactions, and mutations of the human beta-2 adrenoreceptor and its similarity to other beta-2 adrenoreceptors.

Data is fetched from http://gpcrdb.org website.

A Pymol session file called jcim/aminergic_alignment.pse with an aminergic alignment is stored next to this workflow.

KLIFS_example

Example for KLIFS nodes

This example performs interaction fingerprint analysis of human MAPK-ligand complexes.

Data is fetched from http://klifs.vu-compmedchem.nl/

KRIPO_bioisosteric_replacement_workflow

Bioisosteric replacement workflow using Kripo Knime nodes.

A Pymol session file called jcim/KRIPO_3rze_2aot.pse with 3rze + 2aot Kripo fragment alignment is stored next to this workflow.

SyGMa-example

Example for the SyGMa metabolites node: predicting the metabolites of 5 (drug) molecules.
