A pharmacophore-based virtual screening method was developed and validated for use in predicting the function of a novel protein in terms of small metabolite binding. The pharmacophore-based virtual screening eliminated >92% of the database as potential substrates. Application of a physics-based scoring function ranked substrate-like compounds within the top 1% of the metabolite database. The results suggest that this pharmacophore-based method is a time efficient strategy to screen large databases to help predict the function of small metabolite binding proteins.
