Cancer is a big issue that affects people all over the world. It develops as a result of uncontrolled cell growth. The interaction between developed ligands and thymine phosphorylation was investigated in this study, which was computationally optimized. The aim of this study was to examine the anticancerous activity of designed ligands in thymine phosphorylation (PDB ID: 1UOU) in order to minimize the cost and time required to develop a novel anticancer drug with minimal side effects. All the designed ligands showed mild to excellent binding with proteins. Most of the ligands exhibited better interaction compared to reference compound Tamoxifen with pdb files. Some of the designed ligands among (1-7) in qunoline derivatives and (1-5) in Chalcone derivatives showed excellent docking scores with PDB file (1UOU) of thymine phosphorylation. All the designed ligands and Zinc databases were docked with 1UOU PDB files of protein, and it was found that out of twenty-five designed ligands in Qunoline series, ligand 25 showed the best binding (docking score −8.268) with 1UOU PDB of protein thymine phosphorylation. And that out of ten designed ligands in Chalcone series, ligand K1 showed the best binding (docking score −9.433) with 1UOU PDB of protein thymine phosphorylation. Docked ligand cavity of ligand ku 25 in qunoline series and K 9 in Chalcone series showed important hydrophobic/non-polar residues such as Ile199, Ile316, Trp119, Phe168, Ile198, Cys172, Tyr188, Tyr398, Tyr435, Phe343, Tyr60, Leu328, Leu171, and showed pi-pi interaction with Tyr326. Further wet laboratory studies are continued in our laboratory to confirm and find out the efficiency and activity of target compounds.
