The all-grid probe Lennard-Jones 6-12 potential, typically used as steric descriptor in CoMFA, has been replaced by the vols. of van der Waals envelopes intersections between the probe-atom and the ligand mols. under investigation. The intersection vols. present a smoother distance dependence that overcomes the problems arising from formulation of a precise alignment and docking into the 3D lattice. A CoMFA-type application on a set of 78 steroid aromatase inhibitors with different grid and probe-atom characteristics suggests an improved model robustness for the new steric field in comparison with the classical 6-12 potential. Predefined cut-off and „min. sigma” values are not required. Systematic variation of the 3D lattice position leads to lower variations of cross-validated r-squared (q2LOO) at all levels of model complexity, which can be reduced with exclusion of some „interior” points. The relative simplicity and inexpensive computational demands make this steric field a promising alternative for routine CoMFA-based 3D-QSAR analyses.
