Abstract :

The cure for Alzheimer?s disease suggested by Cholinergic hypothesis involves searching for candidate compounds that can act as inhibitors for Acetylcholinesterase enzyme. In this regard, Tetraphenylporphinesulfonate (TPPS), 5,10,15,20-Tetrakis (4-sulfonatophenyl) porphyrinato Iron(III) Chloride (FeTPPS) and 5,10,15,20-Tetrakis (4-sulfonatophenyl) porphyrinato Iron (III) nitrosyl Chloride (FeNOTPPS) were investigated as candidate compounds for inhibition of Acteylcholinesterase of Drosophila melanogaster by use of Molecular Docking. The results show that FeNOTPPS forms the most stable complex with DmAChE.
