Molecular docking of viscosine as a new lipoxygenase inhibitor isolated from <i>Dodonaea viscosa</i>
Keywords:Dodonaea viscosa, Lipoxygenase, Molecular docking
Viscosine was isolated from Dodonaea viscosa, which showed significant lipoxygenase inhibitory activity (IC50: value 39 ± 0.17). Molecular docking simulations were conducted to explore molecular binding mode, and to help elucidate molecular mechanism behind its significant inhibitory activity. Molecular interactions of viscosine with catalytic triad (His523, His518, Ile875) inside active site of lipoxygenase via hydrogen bonding, seems to be the major factor involved in its significant lipoxygenase inhibitory activity.
