Computational Chemistry & Molecular Docking Studies

Docking studies are computational techniques for the exploration of the possible binding modes of a substrate to a given receptor, enzyme or other binding site. The application of computational methods to study the formation of intermolecular complexes has been the subject of intensive research during the last decade. The department of phytochemistry has a collection of compounds structures. Our aim is to find a target molecule for different Matrix metalloproteinase (MMPs) in cancer cells, diabetic wound healing and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. We presently focusing on, the docking interactions on carbonic anhydrase with 40 different flavonoids (flavones, flavonols and biflavones). A few lead molecules have been identified. Some representative are given below.
