Keywords: polysubstituted functionalized aminothiazoles, antihypertensive activity, molecular descriptors, QSAR-analysis


Background. QSAR analysis is an important tool for the identification of pharmacophore fragments in biologically active substances and helps optimize the search for new effective drugs.

Objective. The aim of the study was to determine the molecular descriptors for QSAR analysis of polysubstituted functionalized aminothiazoles as a theoretical basis for purposeful search de novo of potential antihypertensive drugs among the investigated compounds.

Methods. Calculation of molecular descriptors and QSAR-models creation was carried out using the Hyper-Chem 7.5 and BuildQSAR packages.

Results. The calculation of a number of molecular descriptors (electronic, steric, geometric, energy) was performed for 15 new polysubstituted functionalized aminothiazoles, with established in vivo antihypertensive activity. According to the calculated molecular descriptors and antihypertensive activity parameter, the QSAR models were derived НА = a + b ∙ X1 + c ∙ X2 + d ∙ X3 , where the activity parameter НА is antihypertensive activity and X1, X2, X3 are molecular descriptors.

Conclusion. The study of ‘the structure - antihypertensive activity’ relationship for polysubstituted functionalized aminothiazoles was carried out. QSAR analysis revealed that volume, area, lipophilicity, dipole moment, refractivity, polarization of the molecule and energy of the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital have the most significant effect on antihypertensive activity. It was suggested that the attained QSAR-models may have antihypertensive activity within abovementioned row of compounds and can be considered as theoretical basis for de novo design of new potential antihypertensive drugs.
