Molecular modeling studies on benzimidazole carboxamide derivatives as PARP-1 inhibitors using 3D-QSAR and docking

Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARPs) play significant roles in various cellular functions including DNA repair and control of RNA transcription. PARP-1 inhibitors have been demonstrated to potentiate the effect of cytotoxic agents or radiation in a number of animal tumor models. To understand the structure-activity correlation of cyclic amine-containing benzimidazolecarboxamide-based PARP-1 inhibitors, we have carried out a combined molecular docking and three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationship (3D-QSAR) modeling study.
