Abstract

Enterotoxin H is a key molecular target for replication and establishment of Klebsilla pneumonia in the host. Therefore, it is of interest to study the interaction of enterotoxin H with pleurocidin like peptides using molecular modelling (template PDB ID: 1YCE), Lig-Plot (ligand construction) and docking tools for therapeutic consideration. The hydrophobic pocket and the active site residues (Val 13, Met 16, Gly 25, Ala 25, and Ile 28) were identified using Cast P, Molegro and Sitehound tools. Docking results show that the pleurocidin like peptides interacts with the active sites of enterotoxin H with 300.96 docking score with optimal binding features.
