Abstract

A remarkably simple, molecular size-based model developed to predict octanol-water partition coefficients for organic compounds is tested on a set of 188 neutral peptides with available experimental partition data. Despite using only two parameters, it gives a promising correlation (r2 = 0.914; σ = 0.455, F = 1978.0), and predictions are in a realistic range even for larger peptides (cyclosporin, melanotan, sandostatin) where common, overparametrized fragment methods become quite unreliable. Ion-pair partitioning and the extraction constant formalism is briefly reviewed to describe the sigmoidal lipophilicity profile of ionizable, nonzwitterionic peptides. It seems possible to extend the present model to estimate apparent partition coefficients measured around neutral pH and physiological conditions for monoionic peptides; however, as no standard conditions are yet defined and only relatively small number of experimental data are available, the situation here is more complex.
