Chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) is an important receptor used by human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) to gain viral entry into host cell. In this study, we used a combined approach of comparative modeling, molecular docking, and three dimensional quantitative structure activity relationship (3D-QSAR) analyses to elucidate detailed interaction of CCR5 with their inhibitors. Docking study of the most potent inhibitor from a series of compounds was done to derive the bioactive conformation. Parameters such as random selection, rational selection, different charges and grid spacing were utilized in the model development to check their performance on the model predictivity. Final comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) and comparative molecular similarity indices analysis (CoMSIA) models were chosen based on the rational selection method, Gasteiger-Hückel charges and a grid spacing of 0.5 Å. Rational model for CoMFA (q (2) = 0.722, r (2) = 0.884, Q (2) = 0.669) and CoMSIA (q (2) = 0.712, r (2) = 0.825, Q (2) = 0.522) was obtained with good statistics. Mapping of contour maps onto CCR5 interface led us to better understand of the ligand-protein interaction. Docking analysis revealed that the Glu283 is crucial for interaction. Two new amino acid residues, Tyr89 and Thr167 were identified as important in ligand-protein interaction. No site directed mutagenesis studies on these residues have been reported.
