Quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR) study has been developed for structurally similar to 5-N-acetyl-Beta-D-Neuraminic acid as
inhibitors for Clostridium tetani causing targets using neural network. QSAR models for biological activity of half-maximal inhibitory concentration
50 (IC50) were created with 110 training compounds, 50 test compounds, and 16 different descriptors. The predictive capability of the QSAR models
was evaluated by r2, q2
LMO (TestSet), q2
LOO(TestSet), q2
BOOT(TestSet). The comparison of various external validation reveals identical q2
LMO(TestSet), q2
LOO(TestSet) and
BOOT(TestSet) for IC50 (0.9) which demonstrates the high robustness and real predictive power of IC50 model.
