Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is a key enzyme that regulates the neurotransmitter acetylcholine within the nervous system and is a goal for the remedy of Alzheimer’s illness and different neurological issues (Zaki et al., 2020). Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) modeling is a computational strategy that relates chemical buildings of compounds to their organic exercise (Galton et al., 2017). The ChEMBL database is a useful useful resource for QSAR modeling, offering a big assortment of bioactivity knowledge and molecular descriptors for numerous organic targets (Kamboj et al., 2022). Machine studying algorithms have proven nice potential for creating QSAR fashions for drug discovery (Mamada et al., 2022).
The objective of this research was to create QSAR fashions for predicting AChE inhibition exercise utilizing the ChEMBL database and machine studying algorithms.
