In the current study, the Asinex and ChEBI databases were virtually screened for the identification of potential Lyn protein inhibitors. Therefore, a multi-steps molecular docking study was carried out using the VSW utility tool embedded in Maestro user interface of the Schrödinger suite. On initial screening, molecules having a higher XP-docking score and binding free energy compared to Staurosporin were considered for further assessment. Based on in silico pharmacokinetic analysis and a common-feature pharmacophore mapping model developed from the Staurosporin, four molecules were proposed as promising Lyn inhibitors. The binding interactions of all proposed Lyn inhibitors revealed strong ligand efficiency in terms of energy score obtained in molecular modelling analyses. Furthermore, the dynamic behaviour of each molecule in association with the Lyn protein-bound state was assessed through an all-atoms molecular dynamics (MD) simulation study. MD simulation analyses were confirmed with notable intermolecular interactions and consistent stability for the Lyn protein-ligand complexes throughout the simulation. High negative binding free energy of identified four compounds calculated through MM-PBSA approach demonstrated a strong binding affinity towards the Lyn protein. Hence, the proposed compounds might be taken forward as potential next-generation Lyn kinase inhibitors for managing numerous Lyn associated diseases or health complications after experimental validation.
