Objective: This study aims to evaluate 30 phytochemical compounds from Tetragonula sp. propolis as a PAK1 inhibitor using molecular docking. Methods: Thirty propolis compounds were initially confirmed before docking to comply with Lipinski rules. This simulation was performed against PAK1 using AutodockVina, while interaction profile visualization was conducted between the ligand and receptor through Ligplot+and PyMol. Results: Based on the docking score, inhibition constants, and interaction profile analyses, glyurallin B, glyasperin A, and broussoflavonol F were found to be the most potent compounds used as PAK1 inhibitors. According to several literature studies, the propolis compounds were synergistic, leading to adequate collective utilization. Conclusion: These results implicated the potentials of Tetragonula sp. propolis as a therapeutic agent against COVID-19; however, further studies are still needed.
