Molecular Modeling will be used in structural and virtual models to predict quantities such as the binding affinity, the acute toxicity or a pharmacokinetic parameter of a given molecule. CoMSA is a non-grid 3D-QSAR approach that makes use of the molecular surface for labeling specific areas defined on the molecular surface using the mean electrostatic potentials.

In the case of risk assessment, similar data from the most sensitive toxicological endpoints can be used such as carcinogenicity or cardiotoxicity. In this method, the molecules are subjected to the data set to geometry optimization and assigning them with partial atomic charges.

In this journal we recently reported the development and the validation of a four-dimensional 4D -QSAR quantitative structure-activity relationships concept, allowing for multiple conformation, orientation, and protonation state representation of ligand molecules. The aim is to derive a model of a protein binding site and to predict precisely the relative free energies of ligand binding.

To create a QSAR it requires a set of active substances where experimental binding affinities are available. It is applied for discovering and developing new compounds, as well as assessing potential health risks posed by existing compounds. We have therefore extended our concept software Quasar by an additional degree of freedom–the fifth dimension–allowing for a multiple representation of the topology of the quasi-atomistic receptor surrogate.


We used in the Molecular modelling course the software Quasar and Raptor. This means that many animal experiments must be carried out. This determination allows rationally modification of the effect or improving the potency of a bioactive compound by changing its chemical structure or insert new chemical groups.

CoMFA generates an equation correlating the biological activity with interactive energy field’s contribution at every grid point. Quantitative structure-activity relationships can be classified due to their dimensionality, whether there are mathematical, virtual or structural models. It is useful for the further design of novel, structurally related drugs.

The evaluating ligand-receptor interactions comprehend a directional term for hydrogen bonding, a term for hydrophobic interactions and solvation effects. Raptor is a receptor modelling approach on the basis of multi-dimensional quantitative structure activity relationships. This is on the basis that structurally similar compounds may have similar physical and biological properties.

5D-QSAR: the key for simulating induced fit?

While this approach significantly reduces the bias with selecting a bioactive conformer, orientation, or protonation state, it still requires a “sophisticated guess” about manifestation and magnitude of the associated local induced fit-the adaptation of the receptor binding pocket to the individual ligand topology.

For all other systems the 4D-QSAR is the better approach because it refers to the possibility to represent each molecule by an ensemble of conformations, orientations, protonation states and tautomers.

With our one-stop service, you can work more efficiently and effectively. Structure-activity relationship SAR explores the relationship between a molecule’s qwar activity and its three dimensional 3D structure of the molecule.

One method is the quantitative structure-activity relationship QSARwhich forecasts the activity of active ingredients. This is important to simulate induced-fit. Wsar the program Quasar the local induced fit, H-bond flip-flop and various solvatation effects can be simulated. Generally, if the structure of a hit is known, the biological effects of the hit are predicted using other similar compounds’ data.

Please input “biolabs” case insensitive as verification code. While this entity may be generated using up to six different induced-fit protocols, we demonstrate that the simulated evolution converges to a single model and that 5D-QSAR–due to the fact that model selection may vary throughout the entire simulation–yields less biased results than 4D-QSAR where only a single induced- fit model can be evaluated at a time.

The unique methods allow researchers to go beyond merely characterizing structures as “active” or “inactive”, but predict the level of biological activity or potency. Ligand receptor interactions will be estimated due to a directional force field. The results indicate that the formal investment of additional computer time is well-returned both in quantitative and in qualitative values: The quasi-atomistic receptor models will be then generated if a genetic algorithm is used combined with cross qear.

SAR and QSAR Models

Although 3D-QSAR is the standard, it is only sufficient in compounds with little or no conformational diversity. This fact makes the approach independent from a partial-charge model and allows to frictionless modelling ligand molecules which bind to the receptor with different qssr charges.

Induced fit is not restricted to steric aspects but ii includes variation of the physico-chemical fields attended by it.
