The present study reports the development of a template for the active binding site of Cdk5 for structure-based drug design. The developed template of Cdk5 was validated by redocking with ligands I (PBD code 1UNG), II (PBD code 1UNL) and III (PBD code 1UNH). The results demonstrate a good match of the docked and the crystallographic binding orientations with RMSD less than 2.0Å. The validation results show that the constructed Cdk5 template is a good model system for predicting ligand binding orientations and binding affinities. Furthermore, the developed template was applied to predict binding mode and binding affinity of thirty-six known Cdk5 inhibitors. The results showed that the binding energy of almost Cdk5 inhibitors related to their biological evaluation.
