Present computational lead (drug)-optimization is lacking in thermodynamic tactics. To examine whether calculation of binding free-energy change (ΔG) is effective for the lead-optimization process, binding ΔGs of 7-Azaindole derivatives to ATP binding site of Glycogen Synthase Kinase-3β (GSK-3β) were calculated. The result was a significant correlation coefficient of r = 0.895 between calculated and observed ΔGs. This indicates that calculated ΔG reflects the inhibitory activities of 7-Azaindole derivatives. In addition to quantitative estimation of activity, ΔG calculation characterizes the thermodynamic behavior of 7-Azaindole derivatives, providing also useful information for inhibitor optimization on affinity to water molecules.
