AccD6 (acetyl coenzyme A (CoA) carboxylase), plays an important role in mycolic acid synthesis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). Induced gene expression by isoniazid (isonicotinylhydrazine - INH), anti-tuberculosis drug) shows the expression of accD6. It is our interest to study the binding of activated INH with the AccD6 model using molecular docking procedures. The study predicts a primary binding site for activated INH (isonicotinyl acyl radical) in AccD6 as a potential target.
