Phytochemicals from Buddleja asiatica plant extract are traditionally used to cure skin diseases. It is caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Molecular docking method applied using “Biovia Discovery Studio”. “High positive values of -CDOCKER energy and -CDOCKER interaction energy” suggested that lignoceric acid can effectively deactivate the L-lactate dehydrogenase enzyme thereby interrupting the life cycle of the organism.
