The PDTCM (Psoriasis Dababase of Traditional Chinese Medicine) is designed to be a comprehensive resource for virtual screening and drug discovery from Traditional Chinese Medicine in Chinese Pharmacopeia and Chinese Materia Medica about psoriasis. In the current version, PDTCM contains 34373 natural chemicals and their identification information (chemical name, CAS registry number, molecular formula, molecular weight, international chemical identifier (InChI) and SMILES, molecular properties (AlogP, Number of Hydrogen Bond Acceptor, Number of Hydrogen Bond Donors, etc.), docking results between all molecules and 44 target proteins, psoriatic-related diseases, pathways and clinical biomarkers. Furthermore, it covers 38 therapeutic formulas from both classical and clinical works and associated 1424 Chinese herbs. The data (3D structures in sdf format, and docking results in tabular form, etc.) can be searched, displayed as well as downloaded easily and efficiently.
