The anticancer activity of secondary metabolites identified from the medicinal plant Plumbago zeylanica was studied using In silico analysis to interpret the inhibitory activity of Matrix metalloproteinases (PDB ID: 3C7X). Polymorphism in Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) has been linked to different neoplaplasias, including oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Docking effect of the 14 secondary metabolites identified from Plumbago zeylanica with receptors was explored. Among the 14 secondary metabolites studied, five of them (Tetradecanal, Sulfurous acid 2-ethylhexyl isohexyl ester, 7, 9-Di-tert-butyl-1-oxaspiro(4, 5)deca, 1-Fluorononane, Nonadecanol) bind to protein receptors effectively. This was proved by computational modeling based on highest docking score and hydrogen bond interaction.



Tetradecanal, Sulfurous acid 2-ethylhexyl iso hexyl ester, 7, 9-Di-tert-butyl-1-oxaspiro (4, 5) deca, 1-Fluorononane, Nonadecanol, OSCC and metalloproteinases.
