A Review of Molecular Modeling Approaches to Pharmacophore Models and Structure-Activity Relationships of Ion Channel Modulators in CNS

Author(s): Y. Li, W. E. Harte.

Abstract:

Through pharmacophore models and providing quantitative analysis of structure-activity relationships (QSAR), molecular modeling techniques can be useful tools to study the interactions of ion channels and their modulators. The present review focuses on molecular modeling approaches that defined pharmacophore models of ion channel modulators in the CNS. The commonality and subtlety of the pharmacophore models of various ion channel modulators are discussed which can be used as a framework for the design of ion channel modulators.

Keywords: Ion Channel Modulators in CNS, Pharmacophore and QSAR Modeling, NAChR, 5-HT3
