Optibrium and Enamine collaboration extends commercial compound database access for StarDrop users

Optibrium™ today announced a collaboration with Enamine. The collaboration provides StarDrop™ users with easy access to EnamineStore, a database of their commercially available screening compounds and chemical building blocks. StarDrop has been developed to connect seamlessly with a wide variety of internal and external informatics systems and this latest partnership further extends the wealth of information available to users through StarDrop and its capabilities for small molecule design, optimisation and data analysis in drug discovery.

StarDrop provides free access to the Enamine database to easily search for commercially available compounds and building blocks. Enamine has over 3.3 million screening compounds and a further library of 7.8 million building blocks available to order from EnamineStore. The link enables users not only to search for specific compounds, but also find those that are structurally similar to their most interesting hits and leads or contain relevant substructures. This provides an invaluable tool for researchers to quickly enrich the understanding of their chemical structure-activity relationships.

REAL compounds with predicted biological activity

Accessing new chemistry for drug discovery has been recently facilitated by the approach developed by John Irwin et al. (DOI: 10.1021/acs.jcim.7b00316). Combination of Similarity Ensemble Approach (SEA) with the maximum Tanimoto similarity to the nearest bioactive was found to provide efficient prediction for all 400 million commercially available compounds in ZINC database including 340 million Enamine’s REAL compounds. You can access the files at https://zinc15.docking.org and http://files.docking.org/catalogs/20/enamine-v/. REAL compounds will be synthesized at Enamine on your request in less than 3 weeks with over 85% success rate!
