摘要

A large data set of 146 natural, synthetic and environmental chemicals belonging to a broad range of structural classes have been tested for their relative binding affinity (expressed as log (RBA)) to the androgen receptor (AR). These chemicals commonly termed endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) present a variety of adverse effects in humans and animals. As assays for binding affinity remains a time-consuming task, it is important to develop predictive methods. In this work, quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSARs) were determined using three methods, multiple linear regression (MLR), radical basis function neural network (RBFNN) and support vector machine (SVM). Five descriptors, accounting for hydrogen-bonding interaction, distribution of atomic charges and molecular branching degree, were selected from a heuristic method to build predictive QSAR models. Comparison of the results obtained from three models showed that the SVM method exhibited the best overall performances, with a RMS error of 0.54 log (RBA) units for the training set, 0.59 for the test set, and 0.55 for the whole set. Moreover, six linear QSAR models were constructed for some specific families based on their chemical structures. These predictive toxicology models, should be useful to rapidly identify potential androgenic endocrine disrupting compounds.
