Abstract: Cancer is the uncontrolled division of the cell. Cancer is mainly caused due to mutation and epigenetic changes. DNA methylation is catalyzed by DNA methyltransferases (DNMT), is a major epigenetic modification that modulates gene expression. DNMT1 inhibition is a current challenge in cancer therapy because of inhibition of tumor suppressor genes (TSG) by hypermethylation. Abnormal DNA methylation has key roles in the development and progression of diseases including cancer. Therefore, it is of interest to screen DNMT1 (PDB ID 4WXX) target protein which causes disease with a known ligand compound using computer-aided molecular docking tools. The DNMT1 (PDB ID 4WXX) was retrieved from Protein Data Bank followed by molecular docking of ligands like Luotonin C (CID:102369825),Nimbin (CID: 108058), 2 Aminobenzamide (CID: 6942) and Vasicine (CID: 667496). All the 4 known ligand compounds were analyzed for the interaction with the target. After virtual screening by PyRx and analysis of drug likeliness property with SwissADME, Luotonin C (with the binding free energy of -6.1 kcal/mol) was the only compound found to be suitable as a drug. Through AutoDock Vina and Biovia Discovery studio client 2020 software different poses of Luotonin C were analyzed and finally through structure visualization tool PyMol, the interaction between the DNMT1 and Luotonin C were analyzed. Hence, it can be concluded that Luotonin C may act as a promising drug for the treatment of cancer after in vitro and in vivo studies.
