Phytochemicals from Bhringaraj plant extract are traditionally used to cure Pneumonia. It is caused by Klebsiella pneumonia. Molecular docking method applied using “Biovia Discovery Studio”. “High positive values of -CDOCKER energy and -CDOCKER interaction energy” suggested that glutamic acid can effectively deactivate the dehydrogenase enzyme, thereby interrupting the life cycle of the organism.
