Abstract


Objective: Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), a transmembrane protein with cytoplasmic kinase activity, transduces growth factor signaling
from the extracellular space to the cell. EGFR downstream signaling increases proliferation and reduces apoptosis. Agents that are targeted at
intracellular tyrosine kinase are tyrosine kinase inhibitor small molecules, which have a mechanism of action that affects adenosine triphosphate
binding to the receptor. The exploration of bioactive compounds from marine materials, including marine fungi, has become a major interest lately
for anticancer treatment.
Methods: In this research, a database was created and in silico screening was conducted using AutoDock and Vina to obtain potential marine fungi
bioactive compounds as EGFR-tyrosine kinase (EGFR-TK) inhibitors, which act as antiproliferative agents on tumor cell growth.
Results: This research has concluded that the three marine fungi compounds with the lowest binding free energy, FU0015, FU0051, and FU0202, have
great potential as inhibitors of EGFR-TK.
Conclusions: Three active compounds were identified as inhibitors of EGFR-TK, which were Fiscalin A, derived from Neosartorya paulistensis
KUFC 7897 (FU0015); Aspergiolide B, derived from Aspergillus flavus (FU0051); and Sporothrix A, derived from Sporothrix sp. (FU0202).
