The interactions of two organoplatinum complexes, [Pt(C^N)Cl(dppa)], 1, and [Pt(C^N)Cl(dppm)], 2 (C^N = N(1), C(2')-chelated, deprotonated 2-phenylpyridine, dppa = bis(diphenylphosphino)amine, dppm = bis(diphenylphosphino)methane), as antitumor agents, with bovine serum albumin (BSA) and human serum albumin (HSA) have been studied by fluorescence and UV-vis(More)
The partial least squares regression method has been applied for simultaneous spectrophotometric determination of harmine, harmane, harmalol and harmaline in Peganum harmala L. (Zygophyllaceae) seeds. The effect of pH was optimized employing multivariate definition of selectivity and sensitivity and best results were obtained in basic media (pH>9). The(More)
A QSAR algorithm, principal component-genetic algorithm-artificial neural network (PC-GA-ANN), has been applied to a set of newly synthesized calcium channel blockers, which are of special interest because of their role in cardiac diseases. A data set of 124 1,4-dihydropyridines bearing different ester substituents at the C-3 and C-5 positions of the(More)
A simple analytical method based on the second-order calibration of the pH gradient spectrophotometric data was developed for assay of carminic acid (CA) in human plasma and orange juice over the concentration range of 1.5-14.0microM. The multi-way data analysis method was coupled with standard addition to encounter the significant effects of plasma and(More)
A genetic algorithm-based artificial neural network model has been developed for the accurate prediction of the blood-brain barrier partitioning (in logBB scale) of chemicals. A data set of 123 logBB (115 old molecules and 8 new molecules) of a diverse set of chemicals was chosen in this study. The optimum 3D geometry of the molecules was estimated by the(More)
A new source of amino acid (AA) indices based on quantum topological molecular similarity (QTMS) descriptors has been proposed for use in QSAR study of peptides. For each bond of the chemical structure of AA, eight electronic properties were calculated using the approaches of bond critical point and theory of atom in molecule. Thus, for each molecule a data(More)
We employed segmented principal component analysis and regression, as a new methodology in quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR), to define new amino acid indices. The descriptors are first classified into different groups (based on the similarity in the information contents they are possessing) and then each group is subjected to principal(More)
The major problem associated with application of principal component regression (PCR) in QSAR studies is that this model extracts the eigenvectors solely from the matrix of descriptors, which might not have essentially good relationship with the biological activity. This article describes a novel segmentation approach to PCR (SPCAR), in which the(More)
In view of obtaining some potential antibacterial compounds, we have described synthesis of some chloroaryloxyalkyl imidazole and benzimidazole derivatives. The relevant step in the synthetic sequence was the initial condensation of 4-chloro or 2,4-dichlorophenol with 1, n-dibromoalkanes (n=2, 4, 5) to provide compounds 3a-f in sufficient yields. The(More)
Fibril formation seems to be a general property of all proteins. Its occurrence in hen or human lysozyme depends on certain conditions, namely acidic pHs or the presence of some additives. This paper studies the interaction of lysozyme with sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) at pH 9.2, using UV-visible spectrophotometry, circular dichroism (CD)(More)
