Abstract: Sigma-1 (sigma(1)) affinities of methyl 2-(aminomethyl)-1-phenylcyclopropane-1-carboxylate (MAPCC) derivatives were modelled by the genetic algorithm with linear assignment of hypermolecular alignment of datasets (GALAHAD) and the comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA)/comparative molecular similarity indices analysis (CoMSIA) methods. GALAHAD was used for deriving the 3D pharmacophore pattern that encompasses the most potent sigma(1) ligands within this series. Five MAPCC derivatives with a high sigma(1) affinity were used for deriving this model. The obtained model included a nitrogen atom, the hydrophobes and the hydrogen bond acceptor features; it was able to identify other potent sigma(1) ligands. On the other hand, CoMFA and CoMSIA methods were used for deriving quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models. All QSAR models were trained with 17 compounds, after which they were evaluated for predictive ability with additional five compounds. The best QSAR model was obtained by using CoMSIA, including steric, electrostatic and hydrophobic fields, and had a good predictive quality according to both internal and external validation criteria. In general, the models described herein provide meaningful information relevant for the rational design of new sigma(1) ligands.
