DTA Atlas: A massive-scale repurposing library

Instruction for usage: enter either Drugbank ID or Uniprot ID, or both of them, and filter with the number of binders you would like to search or download.

Background: The drug discovery process is costly, time-consuming, and lacks the detailed evaluation of drug selectivity in a comprehensive manner. Drug-repurposing, which can be used to speed-up drug development and reduce its costs, attempts to identify new targets for already approved drugs. This process involves the evaluation of a large number of drug-protein interactions and can be used as virtual counter-screening to tackle the problem of novel target sensitivity and specificity. While modern in silico methods, such as drug-target affinity predictions of large numbers of drugs made this process more feasible and scalable, to date, only few attempts have been made in creating user friendly massive-scale datasets.

Results: In this work, a comprehensive and open drug-repurposing database has been created, which explores drug-target affinify for the whole human proteome and all marketed drugs, thus covering more than 200 million drug-target pairs. The database is built, utilizing state-of-the-art deep learning-based drug-target affinity models and contains more than 4 billion predictions. The work also provides a user-friendly web application to access this data.

Conclusions: This work establishes the first massive-scale atlas of drug-target affinity predictions and enables users to identify new potential targets for marketed drugs.
