A three-dimensional pharmacophore model has been generated for HIV-1 integrase (HIV-1 IN) from known inhibitors. A dataset consisting of 26 inhibitors was selected on the basis of the information content of the structures and activity data as required by the catalyst/HypoGen program. Our model was able to predict the activity of other known HIV-1 IN inhibitors not included in the model generation, and can be further used to identify structurally diverse compounds with desired biological activity by virtual screening.
