Abstract: Combretastatin A-4 (CA-4), its analogues and their excellent antitumoral and antivascular activities, have attracted considerable interest of medicinal chemists. In this article, a docking simulation was used to identify molecules having the same binding mode as the lead compound, and 3D-QSAR models had been built by using CoMFA based on docking. As a result, these studies indicated that the QSAR models were statistically significant with high predictabilities (CoMFA model, q2 = 0.786, r2 = 0.988). Our models may offer help to better comprehend the structure-activity relationships for this class of compounds and also facilitate the design of novel inhibitors with good chemical diversity.
Keywords: CA-4; antitumoral and antivascular activities; dock; CoMFA
