  Study interaction of Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) for probable inhibition presents an efficient way to contribute to elucidation of drugs used in treatment of Heart failure (HF). Captopril analogous present one of the most used ACE inhibitors. In this work we study the molecular interaction between Angiotensin Converting enzyme (ACE) and different substrates (bioactive molecules) including solvatation parameter. To carry out this work, we used different molecular modeling approaches as molecular mechanics, molecular dynamics and molecular docking. The introduction of bulky groups causes a conformational rearrangement in the active pocket site, which will probably reinforce and thus complements its activity. Theoretical studies were done using molecular operating environment software (MOE). Obtained results show considerable improvement. Successful docking simulations were found when including flexible water molecules solvating hydrogen bonding groups of the ligand. Taking into account obtained results from study of Angiotensin enzyme interaction with molecules, we can conclude that Moexcipril (Similar of Captopril) present better interaction of Angiotensin Converting Enzyme in presence of water molecules while docking and consequently can be the best inhibitor candi- date to be in vitro and in vivo investigated.
