-====== Toxicity checker ====== 
- 
-Certain structural elements of a molecule can be responsible for toxicity. In fact, some substructural motifs occur more frequently in toxic compounds than in non-toxic ones. It therefore makes sense to eliminate such structural motifs from hits/leads as early as possible. Toxicity Checker is based on more than 100 toxic and promiscuous scaffolds. It displays an alert, when such a motif is found, and it displays the incriminated part of the molecule. 
- 
-1. Go to **[[http://​mcule.com/​apps/​toxicity-checker|LEAD OPTIMIZATION / TOXICITY CHECKER]]** 
- 
-2. Specify your existing hit/lead (either by drawing or by providing a chemical identifier such as mcule ID, SMILES, InChI or InChIKey) 
- 
-3. Click on **"​CHECK"​** 
- 
-4. If the compound contains any potential toxic substructure,​ **"​FAIL"​** message will be displayed along with your structure and the problematic motif in red 
- 
-5. Go back and try to modify the problematic motif of your hit/lead 
- 
-6. Click on **"​CHECK"​** 
- 
-7. Continue the modifications,​ until no alert is displayed 
- 
-8. You can use the other Lead Optimization tools, such as **[[http://​mcule.com/​apps/​1-click-docking|1-Click Docking]]** and **[[http://​mcule.com/​apps/​property-calculator|Property Calculator]]** to make sure other properties of the ligand are not impaired. In fact, try to improve multiple things simultaneously by checking all properties of the same idea.
