The term H /818 indicates the interaction of the electropositive probe at grid point number 1060 with the molecules. It is present as a spline variable and has a positive effect to the binding affinity. The value of H /818 should be greater than 1.884 to increase the binding affinity. It indicates that the presence of electronegative substituents at positions 3 and 4 of the phenyl ring of aromatic carbamoyl group attached to C5 of the PHA-739358 ring, may increase the binding affinity as observed PHA-739358 from the compounds 3, 5, 6, 44, 48 etc. Again, absence of electronegative substitution at the above mentioned positions may reduce the binding affinity as indicated from the compounds 107 and 108.
Alkyl substitution with carbon chain length up to C4 at N8 position of pyrazole ring and carbamoylation of amino group (at C5 position of pyrimidine ring) with aromatic amide having substituents with electronegative atoms at 3rd and 4th position of the phenyl ring may increase the binding affinity towards A3 ARs.

A model structure (Fig. 2) was prepared utilizing available PDB crystal structure of HSV apexbio profile (PDB ID 2GV9) as starting structure.20 Figure 2. Model structure of HSV DNA polymerase showing 3′-5′-exonuclease domain, palm, finger and thumb domain. The docked pose of prototype molecule IV (5h) was used to show the active site at HSV-polymerase palm region. Overall the active site is located in the central core of enzyme near to palm surface.

Using structure based design our laboratory discovered a series of

Using structure-based design, our laboratory discovered a series of potent and selective ATP-competitive B-RafV600E inhibitors which utilized 3-alkoxy pyrazolopyridine as a novel hinge-binding group.5 Optimization led to compounds 1 and 2 (Fig. 1) which were highly active against a broad panel of melanoma and colon cancer cell lines driven by this NVP-BSK805 activating mutation. The X-ray crystal structure of 1 in complex with B-Raf revealed that the kinase adopts the DFG-in conformation, in which the sulfonamide forms hydrogen bonds with the backbone nitrogens of Asp594, Phe595 and Gly596, and the propyl group occupies the small lipophilic pocket formed by an outward shift of the αC-helix.5 Few kinases are known to achieve adenosine triphosphate (ATP) peculiar variant of the DFG-in conformation,6 and 7 and this likely contributes to the excellent selectivity of inhibitors 1 and 2 towards the Raf kinase family.5
