A series of terpene isonitriles, isolated from marine sponges, have previously been shown to exhibit antimalarial activities. Molecular modeling studies employing 3D-QSAR with receptor modeling methodologies performed with these isonitriles showed that the modeled molecules could be used to generate a pharmacophore hypothesis consistent with the experimentally derived biological activities. It was also shown that one of the modeled compounds, diisocyanoadociane (4), as well as axisonitrile-3 (2… CONTINUE READING
