A three-dimensional common feature pharmacophore model was developed using the X-ray structure of RT/non-nucleoside inhibitor (NNRTI) complexes. Starting from the pharmacophore hypothesis and the structure of the lead compound TBZ, new NNRTIs were designed and synthesized, having the benzimidazol-2-one system as a scaffold. Docking experiments showed that these molecules docked in a position and orientation similar to that of known inhibitors. Biological testing confirmed that our strategy was successful in searching for new leads as NNRTIs.

Abstract

A three-dimensional common feature pharmacophore model was developed using the X-ray structure of RT/non-nucleoside inhibitor (NNRTI) complexes. Starting from the pharmacophore hypothesis and the structure of the lead compound TBZ, new NNRTIs were designed and synthesized, having the benzimidazol-2-one system as a scaffold. Docking experiments showed that these molecules docked in a position and orientation similar to that of known inhibitors. Biological testing confirmed that our strategy was successful in searching for new leads as NNRTIs.
