In Silico evaluation of alpha glucosidase and alpha amylase inhibitory activity of chemical constituents from Psoralea corylifolia

  title={In Silico evaluation of alpha glucosidase and alpha amylase inhibitory activity of chemical constituents from Psoralea corylifolia},
  author={L. Mounika},
The current study is about the evaluation of chemical constituents of Psoralea corylifolia for the inhibitory activity of alpha glucosidase and alpha amylase. In this perspective, 46 constituents of Psoralea corylifolia were selected. Acarbose, a known alpha glucosidase and alpha amylase inhibitor, was used as standard. For alpha glucosidase, docking results showed that all the selected constituents of Psoralea corylifolia had binding energy ranging between -190.438 Kcal/mol to -98.969 Kcal/mol… Expand
