Description: EGFRIndb is a literature curated database of small synthetic molecular inhibitors of EGFR. It consists of 4581 compounds showing in vitro inhibitory activities (IC50, IC80, GI50, GI90, EC50, Ki, Kd and percentage inhibition) either against EGFR or its different isoforms i.e. Erbb2 (v-erb-b2 avian erythroblastic leukaemia viral oncogene homolog 2) and Erbb4 (v-erb-b2 avian erythroblastic leukaemia viral oncogene homolog 4) or various mutants. For each compound, database provides information on structure, experimentally determined inhibitory activity of compound against kinase as well as various cell lines, properties (physical, elemental and topological) and drug likeness. Additionally, it provides information on irreversible as well as dual inhibitors that have gained importance in recent years due to the emergence of clinical resistance to known drugs. As compound activity against similar kinases is a measure of its selectivity and specificity, the database also provides this information. It also provides simple search, advanced search, browse facility as well as a tool for structure based searching.
Conclusion: EGFRIndb gathers biological and chemical information on EGFR inhibitors from the literature. It is hoped that it will serve as a useful resource in drug discovery and provide data for docking, virtual screening and Quantitative structure–activity relationship (QSAR) model development to the cancer researchers.
