The aim is to derive a model of a protein binding site and to predict precisely the relative free energies of ligand binding.

SAR and QSAR Models

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 net charges. It is applied for discovering and developing new compounds, as well as assessing potential health risks posed by existing compounds. To reduce the number of these experiments, it is necessary to develop methods that predict or estimate the binding toxic properties of chemical substances.

The quasi-atomistic receptor models will be then generated if a genetic algorithm is used combined with cross validation. This means that many animal experiments must be carried out. The evaluating ligand-receptor interactions comprehend a directional term for hydrogen bonding, a term for hydrophobic interactions and solvation effects. Structure-activity relationship SAR explores the relationship between a molecule’s biological activity and its three dimensional 3D structure of the molecule.

In this method, the molecules are subjected to the data set to geometry optimization and assigning them with partial atomic charges.

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. To create a QSAR it requires a set of active qsag where experimental binding affinities are available. QSAR studies are based on three-dimensional models because they allow for the simulation of direction forces: One method is the quantitative structure-activity relationship QSARwhich forecasts the activity of active ingredients.

With the program D5 the local induced fit, H-bond flip-flop and various solvatation effects can be simulated.

The NK-1 receptor system represented by a total of 65 antagonist molecules converges at a cross-validated r2 of 0. Quantitative SAR QSAR model is regarded as a special case of SAR when relationships become quantifiedand this model relates a set of “predictor” variables X to the potency of the response variable Y to predict the activity of chemicals.

In the case of risk assessment, similar data from the most sensitive toxicological endpoints can be used such as carcinogenicity or cardiotoxicity. Computational chemistry and molecular modeling softwares are adopted as effective tools in identifying binding site interactions. This is important to simulate induced-fit. For instance, the analysis of SAR enables the determination of which chemical groups play an important role in evoking a target effect in the organism.

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.


Although 3D-QSAR is the standard, it is only sufficient in compounds with little or no conformational diversity. The unique methods allow researchers to go beyond merely characterizing structures as “active” or “inactive”, but predict the level of biological activity or potency.

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

Generally, if the structure of a hit is known, the biological effects of the hit are predicted using other similar compounds’ data. Before a drug is launched there are many toxicological tests required.

SAR is valuable information in drug discovery and development.

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. 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.

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. Ligand receptor interactions will be estimated due to a directional force field. Raptor is a receptor modelling approach on the basis of multi-dimensional quantitative structure activity relationships.
