Abstract:   (823 Views)
Background and objectives: This study aimed to study the interaction between the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARSCoV2) spike protein complex and seven drugs that inhibit the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2.
Methods: Plots of protein-ligand interaction were obtained using the LigPlot software. In addition, binding energies in kcal/mol, hydrophobic interactions, and hydrogen bonds were determined. Autodock software v.1.5.6 and AutoDock Vina were used for the analysis of molecular docking processes.
Results: The only structure that interacted with the SARSCoV2 spike protein was anakinra.
Conclusion: Anakinra was the only drug that interacted with the SARSCoV2 spike protein. This could be further investigated for finding a temporary alternative medicine for the treatment of coronavirus disease 2019.
