  • Abstract

    Molecular docking is a procedure that calculates or estimate the liked action of the orientation of molecules when bound to each other to form stable complex. The binding orientation of small molecule drug candidates to their targets or receptor is often or regularly estimated using molecular docking method and also estimates the potency or affinity and activity of the small molecules. It is also used to study the stability of the compound. Computers and programs are used to estimate the interaction between two molecules based on their 3D structures. Docking is a crucial factor to a rational drug design. Docking can also be used in “lead optimization” process. In this review article, we discuss about Molecular docking, Types of docking, Docking approaches, Docking software, and List of docking performed for antituberculosis plants.
