[ Edit ligand 2D | Multiple Substituents | User-Defined Modifiers | Change Torsions | Undo and Redo | Modification History | Save to Spreadsheet | After Editing the Ligand ]
To edit a ligand:
To edit the ligand in 2D:
You can select more than one group. ICM will sample the energy of each group and return a table of the results ranked by binding score. The table columns are described below.
About the modifiers table
mol = 2D sketch of ligand with core substructure highlighted in green. Modifier group is not highlighted in green.
L = Click in box to display ligand with modifier group.
smiles = smiles string of modifier group
SubstScore = Score for modifier group only
Score = Score of whole ligand including modifier group
MolLogP = Predicted LogP
MolLogS = Predicted LogPredicted LogSS
MoldHf = Preidction model build for 'delta Hf in gas' property. using public NIST database. Description can be found: http://webbook.nist.gov A low dHf value means that the compound is more 'stable'.
MolPSA = Polar Surface Area
Volume = Volume of ligand.
The default set of modifiers LIGAND.modifiers is just an sarray of smiles and it is hard-coded into ICM. You can add your own groups by clicking on the "Add New" button in the editor http://www.molsoft.com/gui/edit-ligand.html When sketching you need to add an attachment point - right click on the attachment point atom in the 2D editor and select attachment point.
You can also add manually through the command line:
LIGAND.userModifiers = LIGAND.userModifiers // "c1[c*]nc(N)s1" write system preference
To manually change torsion angles - click on the torsion angle button in the Edit Tools Panel. Click on the bond you want to rotate until you see the torsion angle displayed in orange font. Then click and hold and rotate the torsion.
Every edit (even after docking) can be undone or redone.
To undo or redo:
You can view a table with a log of all modifications by clicking and holding on the "undo" button and choose "Modification history". This will produce a chemical table with a column (operation) describing the modification. Double click to load the modification into the receptor or use the "L" column to toggle the display on and off.
If you like a particular ligand and want to save the changes for use later, then you can save the 3D ligand to a chemical spreadsheet. You can then double click on the ligand in the spreadsheet to load it back into the editor or toggle the ligand on or off.
To save to a chemical spreadsheet:
You can also tag a chemical with a unique name which is stored in the spreadsheet. To do this click and hold on the "Add Current Ligand to Table" button and enter a tag name. The ligand table can be grouped by this tag column (Right Click on the column and choose "Group View By").
After editing the ligand you can:
