Comparing ligand and protein electrostatics of Btk inhibitors

In this case study, protein interaction potentials implemented in Flare, Cresset’s structure-based design software, were used to calculate a detailed map of the electrostatic character of the protein active site of Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk), and compared to ligand fields to get a detailed understanding of ligand binding and SAR.
