How are the XP descriptors useful in analyzing docking results?

Breaking down the components of the scoring function reveals more details as to why a ligand is binding well, and helps to understand ranking amongst other ligands. For example potent binding may be explained by particular types of Hbond, and sub-optimal binding by particular types of penalty. Often these are not obvious from simply examining the poses along with a single value, the GlideScore.
