Abstract

Pandanus odorifer plant extract is traditionally used to cure Hepatitis A. It is caused by Hepatitis virus. Molecular docking method applied using “Biovia Discovery Studio”. “High positive values of -CDOCKER energy and -CDOCKER interaction energy” suggested that 1, 2, 3-benzene triol can effectively deactivate the salutaridine reductase enzyme thereby interrupting the life cycle of the organism.

Keywords:
Phytochemical, Pandanus odorifer, hepatitis virus, hepatitis A.
