Author(s): C Subashini, R Vasanthi, K Ramanathan
Abstract: This study aims to understand the functional activity and to examine the phytochemical compounds from the plant sample Catharanthus roseus.The sample is collected and it will be subjected to phytochemical study. The phytochemical compounds are to be isolated and it will choose for molecular docking with the target receptor. The ligand and receptor binds effectively in the active sites with the binding energy. The active sites of the receptor are to be calculated and the docked structures are validated using bioinformatics tools. From these results, we may observe that the ligand that is effectively docked with the receptor and it could be a responsible compound for drug designing.
