Abstract:


Hypolipidemic pharmacophoric moieties of statins, fibrates, ACAT inhibitors and beta-sitosterol analog series were identified by computational modeling, and compared with the computed structure of new potential glycyrrhetinic acid derivatives lipid-lowering drugs. Their electronic and geometric domains, similar to those of fibrates, suggest a fibrate -like mechanism matching biochemical data.
