PCA was then performed on these conformations, allowing for the recognition of correlated distances and the reduction of the number of variables from ten to eight. Thus, the use of cluster analysis and PCA enabled a reduction in the complexity of the original data set in terms of samples and variables, with only a slight loss of useful information. LDCT was then used to model the biological activity of the A11 receptor antagonists. In the initial estimate all the conformations (449) of active compounds were assigned to the active class and all the conformations (285) of inactive compounds to the inactive class.

A specific spatial disposition of such groups is a requisite for the effectiveness of compounds as antagonists. According to these models, the active conformation consists of acyl groups in an anti-periplanar (app) conformation. Interestingly, compounds 1-10 showed a wide spectrum of activity in both in vitro and in vivo tests (Table 3, see p. 30), even though all fulfill the requirements for the geometric pharmacophore model. The aim of this study was to ascertain whether additional descriptors relating to conformational and electronic properties could explain the different degrees of activity of these molecules.
