Title in Portuguese
Estudo de compostos quinônicos com potencial atividade contra a doença de Chagas
Keywords in Portuguese
quinonas PLS docking
Abstract in Portuguese
Este trabalho apresenta as estruturas determinadas por difração de raio X de dois compostos naftoquinônicos, 3,4-diidro-[2,2-dimetil]-2H-nafto[1,2-b]pirano-5,6-diona (β-lapachona) e dimetil-1,4-naftoquinona. A estrutura cristalina destes compostos mostrou que estes são estabilizados por ligações de hidrogênio do tipo C-H...O, formando estruturas supramoleculares. Dos compostos derivados da β-lapachona, os naftoimidazóis têm-se mostrado muito ativos contra o T. cruzi, agente causador da doença de Chagas. Partindo das estruturas modeladas de 29 compostos naftoimidazólicos, propriedades eletrônicas, geométricas e topológicas foram calculadas para análise estatística por mínimos quadrados parciais (PLS). Após a análise e redução das variáveis foram selecionados os descritores Morp17p, X4a, piPC09, RDF065v, BELp6, RDF060p, R4u, RDF035m e RCI que foram utilizados para a construção um modelo de regressão com o método de PLS. Para o modelo, o menor erro de validação foi obtido com 3 fatores e os coeficientes de correlação R= 0,71 e Q= 0,82. O estudo de docking de alguns compostos naftoquinônicos e naftoimidazólicos mostrou que, do ponto de vista energético e de complementaridade química, estes compostos possuem pouca probabilidade de se ligarem no sítio ativo da tripanotiona redutase (TR), uma enzima essencial para o metabolismo do T. cruzi, bem como no sítio ativo da enzima humana glutationa redutase (GR), homóloga a TR. Há, no entanto, uma tendência geral destes compostos se ligarem no sítio da interface, sobretudo, de se ligarem neste sítio da enzima humana.

Study of quinone compounds with activity against Chagas disease

Abstract in English
This work presents the structure determined by X-ray analyses for two naphthoquinone compounds 3,4-dihydro-2,2-dimethyl-2H-naphtho[1,2-b]pyran-5,6- dione and dimethyl-1,4-naphthoquinone. The crystal packing of these compounds showed the existence of intermolecular hydrogen bonds of the type CH...0. These intermolecular forces are responsible for the self-assembly in three-dimensional supramolecular structure. A set of 29 naphthoimidazoles, derived from β-lapachone, that has shown activity against T. cruzi, the agent of Chagas disease, were modeled. From these structures electronic, geometric, topological, etc, properties were calculated to be used in the investigation by statistic analysis, using the partial least squares method (PLS). After reduction of the number of variables, the best PLS model found was the one obtained with the following variables: Morp17p, X4a, piPC09, RDF065v, BELp6, RDF060p, R4u, RDF035m and RCI. For the PLS model, the lower error of validation was obtained using 3 factors with the coefficients R=0.71 and Q=0.82. Two sets of compounds, naphtoquinones and naphthoimidazoles, were studied by docking method. The results showed that, for both, naphtoquinones and naphthoimidazoles and both trypanothione and glutathione reductase, the compounds have low probability to bind in the active site, and are more likely to bind in the interface site, especially in the interface site of the human protein.
