Background: Corona Virus is biggest family of viruses with causes of illness ranging from mild to severe symptoms. Monascus sp. is used to ferment which has the potential as a Nutraceutical. Studies on Monascus sp. developing rapidly, including the discovery of new pigments, namely 57 derivatives of the pigment Monascus sp. Codes 5LHD and 6VW1 were used as anticoronavirus receptors.

Material and Methods: Ols and SwissDock and then validated by performing Molecular Dynamic. The final conformational results were then visualized using the Biovia Discovery studio, analyzed the effectiveness of the docking program, pharmacokinetics, toxicity, and dynamic programming using the Ramachandran plot.

Results: analysis showed that the compounds derived from Monascus sp. On average it has a small binding affinity value, but the Monankarin E compound has a so good binding affinity value (5LHD: -8.7). Conclusion: Monankarin E from the pigment derivative Monascus sp. can provide good potential to use as a candidate for the anticorona virus.
