Abstract

Phytochemicals from Psidium guajava plant extract can cure Ulcer. It is caused by Helicobacter pylori. This objective of the study is to identify the phytochemical of Psidium guajava capable of curing Ulcer. Molecular docking method applied using “Biovia Discovery Studio”. “High positive values of -CDOCKER energy and -CDOCKER interaction energy” suggested that p-cymene can effectively deactivate the dihydrofolate reductase enzyme thereby interrupting the life cycle of the organism.

Keywords:
