Restoration of p53 function is considered to be a new therapeutic strategy for anti-cancers. Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations coupled with Molecular Mechanics/Possion-Boltzman Surface Area (MM-PBSA) method were used to study the mechanism of the PMI-MDMX interaction. The results show that van der walls energy drives the PMI-MDMX interaction. Calculations based on residue-residue interaction were also performed, and the results not only suggest that five residues of PMI can produce strong interaction with MDMX, but also the CH-CH, CH-π, π-π interactions predominate the binding of PMI in the hydrophobic cleft of MDMX. We expect that this study can contribute significantly to the designs of the potent inhibitors inhibiting the PMI-MDMX interaction.
