Karthik MVK, Syed H, Goswami T, Shukla P., Molecular docking substrate stabilization for Microsporum canis keratinase, Onl J Vet Res., 27 (4): 238-243, 2023. Keratinophilic fungi degrade keratin. In this study we modeled keratinase of Microsporum canis and confirmed its accurary with a RMS Z score (1.432) using PROVE software. Molecular docking between modeled keratinases from species of keratinophilic fungi viz. Microsporum canis with different types of keratins as substrates was performed with scores of -451.89 kj/mol and -262.37 kj/mol, respectively. Arg1031 is conserved in keratinase while interacting with both keratins


Key words: Keratinophilic fungi, keratin, keratinase, Microsporum canis, molecular docking.
