Comparative molecular field analysis and comparative molecular similarity indices analysis of boron-containing human thymidine kinase 1 substrates.


Three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationship (3D-QSAR) using CoMFA and CoMSIA techniques was applied to evaluate 56 pyrimidine nucleosides as substrates of human thymidine kinase 1 (hTK1), 27 of them containing a carborane substituent either at the 3-, 5-, or 3'-position of the 2'-deoxyuridine scaffold. This is the first report describing… (More)
