Phytochemicals from Vaccinium corymbosum L. plant extract are traditionally used to cure diarrhea. It is caused by Escherichia coli.  Molecular docking method applied using “Biovia Discovery Studio”. “High positive values of -CDOCKER energy and -CDOCKER interaction energy” suggested that cafferic acid can effectively deactivate the shikimate dehydrogenase thereby interrupting the life cycle of the organism.
