Artificial Neural Network Modeling of Phytoestrogen Binding to Estrogen Receptors

Author(s): S. Agatonovic-Kustrin, J. V. Turner.

Abstract:

Differential pathophysiological roles of estrogen receptors alpha (ERα) and beta (ERβ) are of particular interest for phytochemical screening. A QSAR incorporating theoretical descriptors was developed in the present study utilizing sequential multiple-output artificial neural networks. Significant steric, constitutional, topological and electronic descriptors were identified enabling ER affinity differentiation.

Keywords: QSAR, ANN, GRNN, Theoretical descriptors, ER-alpha, ER-beta
