(Article) Open science discovery of potent noncovalent SARS-CoV-2 main protease inhibitors
The success of the COVID Moonshot project in producing potent antivirals, building open knowledge bases, accelerating external discovery efforts, and functioning as a useful information-exchange hub is an example of the potential effectiveness of open science antiviral discovery programs. The open science, patent-free nature of the project enabled a large number of collaborators to provide in-kind support, including synthesis, assays, and in vitro and in vivo experiments. By making all data immediately available and ensuring that all compounds are purchasable from Enamine without the need for materials transfer agreements, we aim to accelerate research globally along parallel tracks. In the process, we generated a detailed map of the structural plasticity of Mpro, extensive structure-activity relationships for multiple chemotypes, and a wealth of biochemical activity data to spur further research into antivirals and discovery methodologies.We hope that this can serve as an alternative model for antiviral discovery and future pandemic preparedness.
