Phytochemicals from Trigonella foenum-graecum plant extract are traditionally used to cure Tuberculosis. Molecular docking method applied using “Biovia Discovery Studio”. “High positive values of -CDOCKER energy and -CDOCKER interaction energy” suggested that this plant extract can effectively deactivate the dihydrofolate reductase enzyme thereby interrupting the life cycle of the organism.
