The 3D-QSAR studies of some indole derivatives as phosphodiesterase (PDE) type IV inhibitors was performed by Comparative Molecular Field Analysis (CoMFA) and Comparative Molecular Similarity Indices Analysis (CoMSIA) methods to determine the factors required for the activity of these compounds. The global minimum energy conformer of the template molecule,(More)
Recent trends in drug discovery include methods to identify dual and triple activating drugs. This approach is being successfully employed in malaria, cancer, asthma, insulin resistance, etc. Molecular field analysis has been employed in correlating pharmacological data and field parameters. In this paper we introduce the concept of additivity of molecular(More)
Mutagenicity and carcinogenicity are toxicological endpoints which pose a great concern being the major determinants of cancers and tumours. Nitroarenes possess genotoxic properties as they can form various electrophilic intermediates and adducts with biological systems. Different QSTR techniques were employed to develop models for the prediction of(More)
PTP1B plays an important role as a negative regulator in insulin and leptin signaling pathways. Potent and orally active PTP1B inhibitors can act as potential agents for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes and obesity. CoMFA (Comparative Molecular Field Analysis) and de novo ligand design using LeapFrog (LF) studies were performed on pyridazine analogs,(More)
INTRODUCTION The protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPases or PTPs) are highly conserved phosphatases that regulate the tyrosine phosphorylation and consequently, the cellular functions. Protein tyrosine phosphorylation is the major post-translational modification to regulate signal transduction in cells. PTPs control diverse processes such as focal adhesion(More)
Protein tyrosine phosphatase-1B (PTP1B) has been demonstrated to play a key role in the negative signalling pathway of insulin. Potent and orally active PTP1B inhibitors are considered to be promising pharmacological agents for the treatment of type-2 diabetes and resistance to weight gain. CoMSIA studies have been preformed on 1,2-naphthoquinone(More)
Influenza virus is a major global threat that impacts the world in one form or another as flu infections. Neuraminidase, one of the targets for these viruses, has recently been exploited in the treatment of these infections. Quantitative structure activity relationship studies were performed on thiourea analogues using spatial, topological, electronic,(More)
Chemokines are small molecular weight water-soluble proteins playing a key role in immunomodulation and host-defense mechanisms. CCR2 receptor is targeted for diseases like arthritis, multiple sclerosis, vascular disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Reported, herein are the QSAR studies performed on a diverse set of enantiopure analogues reported as CCR2(More)
CCR2 is the major family of chemokine receptors which involve in the pathophysiology of the acute or chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, asthma, obesity, and type-2 diabetes. Herein, we report the results of HQSAR model, developed for CCR2 antagonistic activity of indolopiperidine derivatives. The best HQSAR model(More)
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a degenerative disorder of the CNS, characterized by cerebral depletion of dopamine (DA), hence one of the approaches to delay the depletion of DA is to inhibit its oxidative deamination. Monoamine oxidases (MAO) carry out the oxidative deamination of monoamines like DA. These are intracellular enzymes, located on the outer(More)
