Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

Over expression of Aurora kinase A (AKA) in a variety of human cells induces chromosomal abnormalities during mitosis that triggers tumor initiation and progression. Thus AKA is an attractive target for cancer prevention. In this study an energy based pharmacophore model was generated based on protein-ligand interaction terms derived from Glide extra precision scoring function. The epharmacophore model along with receptor based excluded volumes was used for virtual screening. The hits were further processed by ADME & Lipinski rule of five to investigate drug likeness which gave final 992 molecules. These molecules were clustered into 50 clusters according to chemical diversity and one of cluster representative (CR36) along with its derivative was synthesized and evaluated for in vitro biological activity.
