Abstract

Identification of tyrosine Fyn kinase inhibitor is recognized as an effective and feasible therapeutic measure in reducing consequences of memory loss disorder Alzheimer's. The present investigation has been attempted with an objective to find out a novel potent inhibitor with similar homological structure to Fyn kinase using structure based in silico screening measure. Such derived structure was compared with natural data base pool and were systematically analyzed. Ligand based interaction was also tested and evaluated. We applied a molecular dynamic simulation technique to validate the stability of the identified complexes and to understand the ligand binding mechanism. Results provide information on the characteristics of novel and potent inhibitor for tyrosinase Fyn kinase protein so as to develop an innovative strategy to treat AD.
