One of the most promising anticancer and recent antimalarial targets is the heterodimeric zinc-containing protein farnesyltransferase (FT). In this work, we studied a highly diverse series of 192 Abbott-initiated imidazole-containing compounds and their FT inhibitory activities using 3D-QSAR and docking, in order to gain understanding of the interaction of… (More)
Glycogen synthase kinase-3, a serine/threonine kinase, has been implicated in a wide variety of pathological conditions such as diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, stroke, bipolar disorder, malaria and cancer. Herein we report 3D-QSAR analyses using CoMFA and CoMSIA and molecular docking studies on 3-anilino-4-phenylmaleimides as GSK-3alpha inhibitors, in order… (More)
Eigenvalue analysis (EVA) was conducted on a series of potent agonists of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma). Predictive EVA quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models were established using the SYBYL package, which had conventional r2 and cross-validated coefficient (q2) values up to 0.920 and 0.587 for the AM1… (More)
