In the current study, both ligand-based molecular docking and receptor-based quantitative structure activity relationships (QSAR) modeling were performed on 35 diaryl urea derivative inhibitors of V600E B-RAF. In this QSAR study, a linear (multiple linear regressions) and a nonlinear (partial least squares least squares support vector machine (PLS-LS-SVM)) were used and compared. The predictive quality of the QSAR models was tested for an external set of 31 compounds, randomly chosen out of 35 compounds. The results revealed the more predictive ability of PLS-LS-SVM in analysis of compounds with urea structure. The selected descriptors indicated that size, degree of branching, aromaticity, and polarizability affected the inhibition activity of these inhibitors. Furthermore, molecular docking was carried out to study the binding mode of the compounds. Docking analysis indicated some essential H-bonding and orientations of the molecules in the active site.
