Özet

QSAR analysis of a set of previously synthesized 2,5,6-trisubstituted benzoxazole, benzimidazole and 2-substituted oxazolo(4,5-b)pyridine derivatives tested for growth inhibitory activity against Candida albicans, was performed by using the computer-assisted multiple regression procedure. The activity contributions for either heterocyclic ring systems or substituent effects of these compounds were determined from the correlation equation and the predictions for the lead optimization were described. The resulting QSAR revealed that the oxazolo(4,5-b)pyridine ring system with the substitution of a benzyl moiety at position 2 was the most favourable structure among the heterocyclic nuclei. Moreover, the fifth position in the fused ring system is found more significant than the other positions in improving the activity.
