The interaction mechanism of triazolyl substituted tetrahydrobenzofuran derivatives (compound 1 (N, N-Dipropyl-1-(2-phenyl-4,5,6,7-tetrahydrobenzofuran-4-yl)-1H-1,2,3-triazole-4-methanamine) and 2 (1-(2-Phenyl-4,5,6,7-tetrahydrobenzofuran-4-yl)-4-(morpholin-4-ylmethyl)-1H-1,2,3-triazole)) with H(+),K(+)-ATPase at different pH were studied by induced-fit docking, QM/MM optimization and MM/GBSA binding free energy calculations of two forms (neutral and protonated form) of compounds. The inhibition activity of compound 1 is measured and almost unchanged at different pH, while the activity of compound 2 increases significantly with pH value decreased. This phenomenon could be explained by their protonated form percentages and the calculated binding free energies of protonated and neutral mixture of compounds at different pH. The binding free energy of protonated form is higher than that of neutral form of compound, and the protonated form could be a powerful inhibitor of H(+),K(+)-ATPase.
