Vibriosis is a disease caused by vibrio belongs to genus Vibriobacteria. It is a Gram-negative bacterium, possessing a curved-rod shape, Vibriosis is mainly causative disease for marine organism like shrimps, fishes etc.other than marine organism it will cause disease to humans by foodborne infection and is associated with eating undercooked seafood.1,2,3 Vibrio Bacterial diseases, have been reported in costal area and marine organism by 14 species in that strains Vibrio parahaemolyticusis an Asian strain found in sea water and coastal environments which is a more virulent and causes wound in humans, shrimps and fishes.Vibrio parahaemolyticus causing disease in fishes like tuna, marakkal, sardines It causes the wound, black lesion and even sudden death in fishes. it causes loss to many seafood companies and hatcheries.4,5,6,7
A protein secreted by Vibrio parahaemolyticus, is a type of hemolysin that is most virulent and acknowledged in past decades as the important pathogenic factor. It is differentiated into (trh) thermostable related haemolysin and (tdh) the thermoreliable direct haemolysin. Although originally studied for its hemolytic property, TDH has been long suspected to be an enterotoxin involved in most cases of Vibrio parahaemolyticus.8,9,10
Haemolysin is responsible of lysis of red blood cells in bacteria it also causes Hemolytic cancer in the human. The three types of heamolysin are α,β and γ.α–Haemolysin is mainly responsible for oligomerization of water-filled channels and toxin monomer in cell depolarization, osmotic phenomena and loss of vital molecules leading to its demise.β– Heamolysin is a toxic mechanism to be the hydrolysis of a specific membrane lipid causes cell lysis.γ-Haemolysin, it has a higher affinity for phosphocholines.11,12
The lytic process, most commonly seen in leucocytes, is caused by pore formation induced by an oligomerized octamer that organizes in a ring structure. Many studies show that naturally available compounds suppressor or inhibits the bacterial diseases (Vibriosis) caused by hemolysin.13,14,15,16 The main objective is to test the drug effectiveness to inhibit the action of the haemolysin (which is responsible for causing the disease) obtained from plant extracts, caffeine, curry leaves, flavonoids, grape seed, sweet basil, phenolic, papaya leaf extract compounds.
Materials and Methods
Molecular modeling of Hemolysin Protein.
To identify the function analysis of the protein hemolysine the sequence of haemolysin protein of α, β and γ sequences for Vibrio parahaemolyticuswas retrieved form the Uniprot database with uniprot ID P19250 for modelling because of unavailability of protein structure in the structural database. The homology structure was retrieved from structural database for the protein sequence the structure was predicted using a modeller 9.17.The modelled structure was analyzed using SAVS (Structure analysis and verification server) and MolProbity, is a structure-validation server that provides evaluation of model quality in global and local in basis of the arrangements of amino acids in Ramachandran plot for the modelled protein. For the predicted structure Energy minimization, Molecular dynamics simulation was performedusing Accelrys Discovery Studio (ADS) 2.0 for 1 nanosecond and stabilized structure model was used.
Identification of drug for Hemolysin Protein from natural plant compounds.
The natural drug compounds for hemolysin was identified in various research articles. The identified compound was collected from natural compounds like plant extracts, caffeine, curry leaves, flavonoids, grape seed, sweet basil, phenolic, papaya leaf extract compounds.10 naturally bioactive compounds were identified for hemolysin. Structural analogs for active pharmacologically compounds were retrieved from Pubchem database. Absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination and toxicity (ADMET) were analyzed by Pharmacokinetic properties. Using Discovery Studio Receptor-ligand docking was done and the docked molecules are viewed for hydrogen bond interactions between the ligand atoms and the amino acid residues of the receptor molecule. The distance between the bonds is calculated and estimated for studying the favourable interactions between the ligand and the receptor molecule. Various interactions such as the alkyl bonds, pi bond, and the respective distance are calculated for the receptor distances are calculated the receptor-ligand complex. The ten compounds are

ADMET result analyses and interpretation
The seven natural compounds of Flavonoids, caffeine ,papaya leaf and grape seed are Subjected to ADMET (Adsorption Distubution, Metabolism, Toxicity studies) studies which gave 6 ligands satisfying the ADMET rules out of 10 compounds. The ADMET results for all the 6 compounds was shown in the given Table -1. (Fig.4).The plot highlights for BBB penetration levels Blue: Very high penetrant; High penetrant;cyan: Medium penetrant; Orange: Low penetrate.An optimal drug should not penetrate the BBB level as it can cause side effects in the CNS. Thus, drug compounds with BBB values 2 and 3 are considered optimal for a drug to be administered.

A higher score in all the above values shows a highly stable molecular interactions, Polar attractive interactions,Polar repulsive interactions, solvation of the protein and ligand and an entropy term for the ligand.
Solvation analysis of target protein
The variation of solvation entropy as a function of solute charge has been used to investigate hydrophobic and hydrophilic ordering and the structure-making and structure breaking effects of ion.The solvation energy, free energy, entropy, etc. are defined as the difference in these quantities for the box containing the water molecules and the solute molecule and two separate isolated boxes of volume V, one with the water molecules and one with the solute molecule.

Simulation result of kinetic energy graph for cyaniding
Molecular dynamics(MD) is a computer based method for the study of physical movements of atoms and molecules. The atoms and molecules can interact for a fixed period. The trajectories of atoms and molecules are determined by numerically solving Newton’s equation of motion. The PDB structure of Docked receptor-ligand is applied for Force field with CHARmm. Using Standard Dynamics method (SD) saves the current location of the coordinates from iteration to iteration. This method is useful for small changes, such as the removal of unfavourable steric contacts .Maximum steps: 2000,RMS:0.0001.Heating- A minimized structure represents the molecule at a temperature close to absolute zero. the equilibrium procedure is continued until various statistical properties of the system become independent of time. Steps:2000,time step:0.001.Save Frequent results-1000.
For the final molecular dynamics simulation, Charm takes the equilibrated structure as its starting point. In simulation, the trajectory traces the motions of the molecule through a period of at least several hundred picoseconds. Just as with energy minimization, provision is made to update the list of nonbonded interactions periodically. Additional options for handling nonbonded interactions and the environment are available, which makes the dynamics facility quite flexible.
Max step:1000000.Save frequent result -:true.
