Abstract: The pharmacophore model of p53-MDM2 binding inhibitors was established by the Catalyst software with the training set of 24 inhibitors containing 5 different kinds of structures. Based on the information of p53-MDM2 binding structure, a fitting pharmacophore model (Correl=0.941, Config=17.530, ⊿cost=150.830) including one hydrogen-bonding acceptor, one aromatic ring center and three aliphatic hydrophobic cores was confirmed. The pharmacophore model could be used to screen new lead compound of p53-MDM2 binding inhibitor.

Key words: p53-MDM2 binding inhibitor, Pharmacophore model, Catalyst software
