Multiple cytokines play a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of Rheumatoid Arthritis by inducing intracellular signaling and it is known that the members of the Janus kinase (JAK) family are essential for such signal transduction. Janus kinase 3 is a tyrosine kinase that belongs to the Janus family of kinases. Drugs targeting JAK3 in the treatment of Rheumatoid arthritis is relevant. Therefore, it is of interest to design suitable inhibitors for JAK3 dimer using molecular docking with Molegro Virtual Docker. The compound possessing the highest affinity score is subjected to virtual screening to retrieve inhibitors. The compound SCHEMBL19100243 (PubChem CID- 76749591) displays a high affinity with the target protein. The affinity scores of this compound are more than known drugs. ADMET analysis and BOILED Egg plot provide insights into this compound as a potent inhibitor of JAK3.
