Phytochemicals from Boswellia serrata Roxb. ex Colebt. 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 p-cymene can effectively deactivate the alcohol dehydrogenase enzyme thereby interrupting the life cycle of the organism.
