This plugin should help to set up docking runs with Autodock and view docking results. It has two features:
- Setup of a docking grid for Autodock with PyMOL.
- View the docking results.
you can download it manually
Watch Dan Seeliger's autodock plugin tutorial.
- The Autodock tools, does not like funny atoms names like "C1, N13, O28" and so on. Rename them! See example 1.
Example 1 - Rename of funny atom names
The example of video http://wwwuser.gwdg.de/~dseelig/plugin_tutorial.html
Note, that the module "prepare_ligand4.py" does not like funny names of atoms, so we have to rename them
reinitialize #fetch 3IG7, async=0 load 3ig7.pdb, 3IG7 create cdk2, 3IG7 and polymer create EFP, 3IG7 and organic and not resn ACE delete 3IG7 hide everything, all #h_add cdk2 #h_add EFP show_as cartoon, cdk2 show_as sticks, EFP util.cbay EFP python # The module "prepare_ligand4.py" does not like funny names of atoms, so we have to rename them Ligand_prop =  cmd.iterate("EFP", "Ligand_prop.append((resi, resn, name, elem, ID))") for resi, resn, name, elem, ID in Ligand_prop: print("resi %s, resn %s, name %s, elem %s, ID %s"%(resi, resn, name, elem, ID)) cmd.alter('%s and id %s'%(resn,ID),'name=%s%s%s'%('"',elem,'"')) # To see the change, we rewrite the list. Ligand_prop =  cmd.iterate("EFP", "Ligand_prop.append((resi, resn, name, elem, ID))") for resi, resn, name, elem, ID in Ligand_prop: print("resi %s, resn %s, name %s, elem %s, ID %s"%(resi, resn, name, elem, ID)) python end
Open the Autodock/Vina plugin. Set executable to folders:
Autodock Tools: /home/tlinnet/Software/pymol/Pymol-script-repo/modules/autodock_tools/AutoDockTools/Utilities24 autogrid4 executable: /home/tlinnet/Software/pymol/Pymol-script-repo/modules/autodock_42/autogrid4 autogrid4 executable: /home/tlinnet/Software/pymol/Pymol-script-repo/modules/autodock_42/autodock4 vina executable: /home/tlinnet/Software/pymol/Pymol-script-repo/modules/autodock_vina/vina Working Directory: /home/tlinnet/pymol
Enlarge the window and click Save Plugin Configuration file.
Click tab Grid settings. In Calculate Grid Center by Selection, write EFP.
Try clicking Wired Box in top right, and then Show Box, Hide Box, Cylindric Box, Show Box.
Then push Select binding site. In PyMOL, write
show sticks, binding_site cmd.disable("binding_site") hide sticks, binding_site
Click tab Receptor. Mark cdk, and click Generate Receptor.
Click cdk2 to the "right", and see where the files are located.
Click tab Ligands. Mark EFP, and click EFP in the Ligand list. Here is the files stored. Click Generate Ligand
Click tab Docking, and click Run Vina. Wait 3-5 minutes, until Writing output ... done.
Click tab View poses, Browse to EFP.docked.pdbqt. Click Load, Show best 10. Experiment with "Display options, and click the candidates"
Congratulations, you did it!
