Design of Thymidine Analogues Targeting Thymidilate Kinase of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
Close-up of TMD4 (a) and TMA12 (b) at the active site of TMPKmt. Hydrogen bonds are shown in orange color and the residues are in purple color. Interactions of inhibitor TMA12 at the active site in 2D depiction (c). Connolly surface of the same active site (d). The binding cleft surface is colored according to residue hydrophobicity: red-hydrophobic, blue-hydrophilic and white-intermediate residues.
