To evaluate absorption of compounds across the membrane via a transcellular route, the permeability of peptide derivatives and related compounds was measured by the parallel artificial membrane permeation assay (PAMPA). The permeability coefficients by PAMPA were analyzed quantitatively using classical QSAR and Volsurf approaches with the physicochemical parameters. The results from both approaches showed that hydrogen bonding ability of molecules in addition to hydrophobicity at a particular pH were significant in determining variations in PAMPA permeability coefficients. The relationship between Caco-2 cell permeability and artificial lipid membrane permeability was then determined. The compounds were sorted according to their absorption pathway in the plot of the Caco-2 cell and PAMPA permeability coefficients.
