The cytokinin dehydrogenase enzyme plays an important role in the high grain production of rice. This enzyme interacts with the FAD ligand. This study shows the domain region of the enzyme which was identified by protparam tool, generated homology models using modeller9.12 tool, models were validated using errat, procheck saves server, prosa and anolea server. Then the active sites were predicted by using castP server. Finally the interaction was studied between the FAD and cytokinin dehydrogenase and with its domain part. The stronger interaction was found between the FAD and the domain of the cytokinin degydrogenase with the binding enegy of -10.91. ALA6, ARG1, AR536, TYR10, ASP55, ALA57, CYS38 of FAD is binding to the domain part of cytokinin degydrogenase in rice.
