In this study, 82 aurone compounds, a subclass of flavonoids were investigated towards to human pancreatic lipase inhibitory activity. Molecular docking of the aurones was done successfully into the catalytic position of lipase (Pdb: 1LPB) using AutoDock Vina software 1.5.7.rc1. The results showed that 62 compounds interacted well with residues in the catalytic trial Ser152-Asp176-His263 and Phe77 of protein 1LPB. In particular, A32 was selected as the best binding compound (docking score: -10.6 kcal.mol-1) and suitable for oral drug following the 5-Lipinski rule. Combining the results of docking and molecular dynamics simulation of A32- protein complex during 10 ns, this study performed that the A32 compound bound well and formed a stable complex with 1LPB protein. Therefore, the A32 compound was considered as the lead compound which could be synthesized and tested for pancreatic lipase inhibitor.
