Three-Dimensional Quantitative Structure−Activity Relationships from Tuned Molecular Quantum Similarity Measures: Prediction of the Corticosteroid-Binding Globulin Binding Affinity for a Steroid Family

David Robert, Lluís Amat, Ramon Carbó-Dorca
1999 Journal of chemical information and computer sciences  
In the present paper, the corticosteroidbinding globulin binding affinity of a 31 steroid family is studied by means of a multilinear regression using molecular descriptors derived from mixed steric-electrostatic  ...  Predictive models based on tuned molecular quantum similarity measures and their application to obtain quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSAR) are described.  ...  Gasteiger and co-workers for providing the molecular geometries of the family studied in this paper. One of us (D.R.) also wants to gratefully acknowledge Dr. C. M.  ...

The Present Utility and Future Potential for Medicinal Chemistry of QSAR / QSPR with Whole Molecule Descriptors

Alan Katritzky, Dan Fara, Ruslan Petrukhin, Douglas Tatham, Uko Maran, Andre Lomaka, Mati Karelson
2002 Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry  
Whole-molecule descriptors are obtained computationally from molecular structures using a variety of programs.  ...  Their applications are reviewed in the areas of solubility, bioavailability, bio-and nonbio-degradability and toxicity.  ...  Comparative molecular field analysis, CoMFA, was one of the first, and is presently the most popular of the 3D-QSAR schemes.  ...
