We present a receptor-based protocol for the prediction of the cell differentiation activities of a series of side chain analogues of 1 alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3), a compound that exhibits a very large variety of biological functions. Our protocol is able to reproduce the activity of the compounds studied here. It also sheds light on the relative importance of binding site residues in the biological activity and on the mechanism behind it.
