Sample text

Therefore, to represent the total geometric variability of the system, three interatomic distances, one for each group, suffice, thus, reducing a 9-dimensional problem to a 3-dimensional one. The three distances reported in Fig. 2b and labeled Do-o, Dc-c and DN-Xwere chosen. In order to determine the binding conformation, the Jarvis-Patrick cluster analysis was performed on the conformational minima of compounds 1-12, using the three selected interatomic distances to define the multivariate pattern space for clustering.

Thus, it seems that, in this case, geometric similarity is an insufficient criterion to rationalize the biological behavior of these compounds, and other properties have to be included in the model for a more appropriate description of the recognition process. For these reasons the MEP distributions of the lowest energy conformation for each compound present in the active cluster were calculated from the MNDO semi-empirical wave function in the plane of the lipophilic fragments (Fig. 9). The b Figure9.

The MEP minimum value above the aromatic system was included in the molecular descriptors (Table 3). The theoretical descriptors considered are not all necessarily suitable for defining the QSAR model. They can be correlated with each other and/or can contain useless information or noise. Thus, a selection of uncorrelated variables related to the in vitro and in vivo activities must be performed. The procedure discussed in Sec. 2 was adopted. e. the variable containing useless information, until the maximum value of was obtained.
