    Author(s): Vijai Singh and Indra ManiVijai Singh and Indra Mani

    Currently, the prevalence of multidrug resistance Aeromonas hydrophila is one of the major issues and challenges for aquatic and terrestrial organisms. Therefore, an urgent need arises to control it using a potent and specific drug. Here, we identified a peptide deformylase (PDF) in A. hydrophila , which is a ubiquitous enzyme and one of the most attractive drug targets. We used the PDF protein sequences for generating a 3-D model using homology modeling. The 3-D model was validated and it was found 91% of the present amino acids in allowed regions of the Ramachandran plot. We used the 3-D model of PDF for the screening of drugs through molecular docking and found BB-3497, actinonin, and BBS-02 were more potent than other studied drugs based on binding energy. We have also generated a phylogenetic tree of PDF from A. hydrophila with other homologous bacteri.. View More»
