Docking studies of andrographolide and its In vitro validation
Author(s): Arpita Mahobia and Zenu Jha
Abstract: In silico molecular docking is one of the most popular molecular modeling approach, used to predict binding poses of ligands to target proteins (TP). It can be used to predict the affinity of ligands to TP. Andrographolide, a biomolecule of plant Andrographis paniculata, with medicinal property will be studied for finding interaction with TP (diseased proteins of human and plant origin). Nine different target proteins HIV protease, THNR reductase, trichothecene-3-O-acetyl transferase, cyclooxygenase, acetylcholine esterase, polygalacturonase, glucosamine-6-phosphate synthase, phospho- shikimate transferase and N-acetyl-β-D-hexosaminidase will be docked with andrographolide using Argus 4.0 bioinformatics software. After successful docking in vitro validation of andrographolide activity will be checked by subjecting S.rolfsii, R.solani and F.udum fungus disease causing agents of tomato with Andrographis extract and efficacy will be evaluated. These results anticipate the application of andrographolide as a bioagent against bacteria, fungi, virus, etc, and will prove its application in agriculture also, this bioactive compound, andrographolide can serve as a potent source of pesticide /insecticide of biological origin. This will give a way for the formulation of new biopesticide which can serve as a better alternative to chemical pesticides.
