Core Tip The manuscript describes the screening of active metabolites in citrus fruit extracts against hepatitis c virus genotype3a non-structural protein 3 (HCV-G3a NS3) protease. In this study, conditions have been optimized to get highly purified and functionally active protein HCV NS3. Further, fluorescence resonance energy transfer assay was used to screen the citrus extracts against NS3 protease. By using liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry/ mass spectrometry analysis and bioinformatics modelling approaches, the observed activity of citrus extracts against HCV genotype3a NS3 protease was ascribed to hesperidin. Fluorescence resonance energy transfer assay confirmed the inhibitory potential of hesperidin against NS4A-NS3 protease domain with an IC50 value of 23.32 µM.
