A review of the literature yielded data on over 200 aromatic and heteroaromatic nitro compounds tested for mutagenicity in the Ames test using S. typhimurium TA98. From the data, a quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) has been derived for 188 congeners. The main determinants of mutagenicity are the hydrophobicity (modeled by octanol/water(More)
Quantitative structure-activity relationships have been derived for the mutagenic activity of 47 nitroaromatic compounds acting on Salmonella typhimurium (TA100) and 66 acting on TA98. The mutagenicity is linearly dependent on the energy of the lowest occupied molecular orbital and bilinearly dependent on the hydrophobicity (octanol/water log P) of the(More)
A set of 36 congeneric 4-aminodiphenyl sulfones with measured inhibition potencies of dihydropteroate synthase were studied by using both linear free energy and molecular modeling methods. The goals of the investigation were to identify the "active" conformation for these compounds as inhibitors and, correspondingly, to contruct a quantitative(More)
A quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) has been derived for the mutagenic activity of 117 aromatic and heteroaromatic nitro compounds acting on Salmonella typhimurium TA100. Relative mutagenic activity is bilin-early dependent on hydrophobicity, with an optimal log P of 5.44, and is linearly dependent on the energy of the lowest unoccupied(More)
