Is it possible to use SuperStar for database screening?
Yes. SuperStar maps can be expressed as a set of pharmacophore points, which highlight the key interactions represented within the map. Pharmacophore points are derived from the map using a Gaussian fitting procedure and results are displayed as discrete points within the three-dimensional SuperStar map. The positions of these points are stored in a file and can, for example, be used to set up pharmacophore-based searches.
