As protein/protein interactions usually trigger signalling processes, inhibitors of those interactions must preclude protein binding without eliciting the signalling process themselves. To accomplish those goals, small molecules need to target those protein residues that contribute the most to binding (binding hotspots) without disturbing those residues that initiate signalling processes (allosteric...
