Corresponding author. Graphical abstract Various computational methods are employed to analyze the various non-synonymous single nucleotide polymorphisms (nsSNPs) in the AKR1C3 gene, that is shown with the protein based approaches along with suitable inhibitors. ga1 Abstract Objective The Aldo-keto reductase family consists of a number of enzymes which are essential to the catalysis of redox transformation and which are also involved in intermediate metabolism and detoxification.

Several studies have been reported that the catalytic-dependent function of AKR1C family members isoforms and their essential roles in various cancer types including prostate cancer and play a key role in drug resistance and drug detoxification. The aim of the current study was to predict and analyze the deleterious single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) that is highly associated with prostate cancer. In addition, to find the potent bioactive compounds as effective inhibitors against prostate cancer.
