Azodyes poses a great threat on public health due to their toxicity and carcinogenicity. Azoreductase enzyme plays a pivotal role in the degradation of azodye released by industrial effluents and other sources. However data available on the degradation pathways in organisms expressing this enzyme is very scarce. Our study attempts to analyze the interaction between the azoreductase enzyme and other accessory interacting proteins alr2106, alr1063, alr2326 in cyanobacterium Nostoc sp PCC7120. Insilico methodologies like structure modeling by I-Tasser server, Protein-Protein docking by ClusPRO were instrumental to attain the objectives. Our investigation shreds light on the possibility that the accessory interacting proteins in cyanobacterium Nostoc sp could enhance azoreductase activity and thus facilitating better dye degradation. Our future aim is to explore similar prospects in algae for enhanced azo dye degradation ability.
