In this study we confirmed the hepatoprotective properties of the phytoconstituents Swertiamarin, Sweroside, Amarogentin, Gentiopicroside present in Gentianaceae family mainly the Iridoids and Seco-iridoids using molecular docking. This technique is used to check the interaction of phytoconstituents with hepatoprotective targets such as 1JEN-Human-S-Adenosyl methionine decarboxylase, 2OOL-Human sperimidine synthase, 2PO2-Crystal structure of the alpha subunit of human-S-Adenosyl methionine Synthetase II, 1JBQ-Structure of human cystathionoine beta synthase a unique pyridoxal 5’ phosphate dependent heme protein, 2AZT-Crystal structure of H 176 N mutant of human glycine N-Methyl transferase, 2OBV-Crystal structure of the human-S-Adenosyl methionine synthase-I in complex with the product, 1093-Methionine adenosyl transferase complexed with ATP and a L-Methionine analogues. Among the screened four phytoconstituents Sweroside exhibited best affinity against IJBQ with maximum binding energy of-38.97 and Gentio Picroside exhibit-30.53 with 1O93 target. Amarogentin also showed least affinity of 69.13 with 1JEN and JBQI. Thus, the present study provided the scientific validation for hepatoprotective activity of selected Iridoids and Secoiridoids.
