A 3D-QSAR study on DPP-4 inhibitors

In this case study, Giovanna Tedesco describes how a robust 3D-QSAR (Quantitative Structure Activity Relationship) model was built for a data set of 73 dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-4, a serine protease) inhibitors using Forge, Cresset’s powerful ligand-focused workbench for understanding SAR and design. Ad hoc Forge 3D display capabilities were used to visualize and interpret the model. Read case study.
