Proteasome inhibitors have been proved to be effective in regulated intracellular proteolysis. Three
Dimensional Quantitative Structure Activity Relationships and Molecular docking methods were performed on
naphthoquinone analogs as proteasome inhibitors. The bioactive conformation was explored by docking the potent
compound 29 into the β5 and β6 subunit of the 20S proteasome. The constructed CoMFA and CoMSIA models produced
statistically significant results with the cross-validated correlation coefficients q2 of 0.831 and 0.851, non-cross-validated
correlation coefficients r2 of 0.974 and 0.965, and predicted correction coefficients r2
pred of 0.758 and 0.701, respectively.
A set of 15 new analogs were proposed by utilizing the results revealed in the present study, and were predicted with
significantly improved potencies in the developed models.
