Resumo: The extract of Mauritia flexuosa, popularly known as “buriti” is rich in bioactive compounds and is characterized as a rich species with antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiplatelet, antitumor, and antilipemic activity. Our methods include using in silico tools to assess biological activities, dynamics, and toxicity prediction. We also performed pharmacophore modeling studies. We found phenolic compounds, flavonoids, carotenoids, fatty acids, and phytosterols. Five flavonoids have predicted chemoprotective activity and affinity for receptors and spatial alignment between the chemical marker present in the M. fleuxosa species and the five ligands with lower IC50 values capable of interacting with their respective targets. In silico pharmacophoric analyzes showed that the most promising structures present in the extract were kaempferol, quercetin, luteolin, apigenin, and caffeic acid, which presented structural alignments according to the analyses. This work opens perspectives to direct future studies in vitro and in vivo with the molecules found during the investigations.
