Comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) and comparative molecular similarity indices analysis (CoMSIA) were performed on a series of benzotriazine derivatives, as Src inhibitors. Ligand molecular superimposition on the template structure was performed by database alignment method. The statistically significant model was established of 72 molecules,(More)
In the present study the homology of transcriptional receptors LuxR type were evaluated using as point of reference the receptors TraR and LasR of the bacterial types Agrobacterium tumefaciens and Pseudomonas aureginosa respectively. A series of alignments were performed in order to demonstrate that the active site of the protein is conserved in wide range(More)
The identification of BACE-1, a key enzyme in the production of Amyloid-β (Aβ) peptides, generated by the proteolytic processing of amyloid precursor protein, was a major advance in the field of Alzheimer's disease as this pathology is characterized by the presence of extracellular senile plaques, mainly comprised of Aβ peptides. Hydroxyethylamines have(More)
Polycyclic aromatic compounds (PAHs) are of concern in environmental chemistry and toxicology. In the present work, a QSRR study was performed for 209 previously reported PAHs using quantum mechanics and other sources descriptors estimated by different approaches. The B3LYP/6-31G* level of theory was used for geometrical optimization and quantum mechanics(More)
This report examines the interpretation of the Graph Derivative Indices (GDIs) from three different perspectives (i.e., in structural, steric and electronic terms). It is found that the individual vertex frequencies may be expressed in terms of the geometrical and electronic reactivity of the atoms and bonds, respectively. On the other hand, it is(More)
Aromatase, the enzyme responsible for estrogen biosynthesis, is an attractive target in the treatment of hormone-dependent breast cancer. In this manuscript, the structure-based drug design approach of sulfonanilide analogues as potential selective aromatase expression regulators (SAERs) is described. Receptor-independent CoMFA (Comparative Molecular Field(More)
Comparative molecular similarity indices analysis (CoMSIA) and comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) were performed on a series of bicyclo [4.1.0] heptanes derivatives as melanin-concentrating hormone receptor R1 antagonists (MCHR1 antagonists). Molecular superimposition of antagonists on the template structure was performed by database alignment(More)
Quantum Chemical calculations for group 14 elements of Periodic Table (C, Si, Ge, Sn, Pb) and their functional groups have been carried out using Density Functional Theory (DFT) based reactivity descriptors such as group electronegativities, hardness and softness. DFT calculations were performed for a large series of tetracoordinated Sn compounds of the(More)
Compostos orgânicos perfluorados (POCs), tais como perfluoroctanossulfonato (PFOS) e perfluoralquilsulfonamida (PFASA), são compostos que, recentemente, têm atraído considerável atenção mundial, devido à sua alta persistência e ampla distribuição no ambiente. Entre os métodos espectroscópicos usados para estudar PFASA, ressonância magnética nuclear de F(More)
Graph derivative indices (GDIs) have recently been defined over N-atoms (N = 2, 3 and 4) simultaneously, which are based on the concept of derivatives in discrete mathematics (finite difference), metaphorical to the derivative concept in classical mathematical analysis. These molecular descriptors (MDs) codify topo-chemical and topo-structural information(More)
