KEGG is a database resource for understanding high-level functions and utilities of the biological system, such as the cell, the organism and the ecosystem, from molecular-level information, especially large-scale molecular datasets generated by genome sequencing and other high-throughput experimental technologies. A recent paper is: Molecular network analysis of diseases and drugs in KEGG. Kanehisa M. Methods Mol Biol. 2013;939:263-75. doi: 10.1007/978-1-62703-107-3_17. We are grateful to the authors for creating and curating KEGG and thank them for making the structures available via PubChem for incorporation into ZINC. Please note that there are : keggviapc, keggcviapc, keggdviapc. Also, if you are interested in human metabolites only, you may find hmdb interesting.
We assess the chemical diversity of a subset by clustering the molecules. First, we sort ligands by increasing molecular weight. Then, we use the SUBSET 1.0 algorithm ( Voigt JH, Bienfait B, Wang S, Nicklaus MC. JCICS, 2001, 41, 702-12) to progressively select compounds that differ from those previously selected by at least the Tanimoto cutoff, using ChemAxon default fingerprints. The resulting representatives have two interesting properties:
|Tanimoto Cutoff Level||60%||70%||80%||90%||100%|
|Number of Representatives||1,674||2,725||4,015||5,707||10,490|
We compute the physical properties of each molecule in the subset, and graph them below.
