Design and synthesis of new nonsteroidal glucocorticoid modulators through application of an "agreement docking" method.


Structurally related glucocorticoid receptor (GR) binders were docked into the GR active site to select the binding mode closest to the true docking mode. This process, termed an "agreement docking method", led to the design of tetrahydronaphthalene 9. The method was validated by the syntheses of 9 and related analogues, which are potent binders of GR. 15a… (More)
