Dataset for an ab initio study of the selectivity of dopamine and other ligands for various dopamine-related enzymes

How to cite this Dataset


Interaction energy calculations between the ligands dopamine, L-DOPA, paracetamol, NAPQI, 3-hydroxyparacetamol, phenylalanine, tyrosine, DOPAL, DOPAC, 3-methoxytyramine and homovanilin with the active sites of the enzymes phenylalanine hydroxylase, tyrosine hydroxylase, DOPA decarboxylase, tyrosinase, COMT, MAO, ALDH, and SULT. These calculations performed with M062X/6-31G//M062X/6-311+G*. Also included are desolvation energy calculations for all ligands named here using M062X/cc-pvdz, as well as benchmark MP2 calculations of dopamine and paracetamol with the SULT active site. All calculations performed using Gaussian 16. Complete and raw data for manuscript 'Ab initio study of the selectivity of Dopamine, L-DOPA, Paracetamol and its metabolite NAPQI for various enzymes associated with biosynthesis and metabolism of Dopamine,' by Harle, Slater and Cafiero.
