A general method of assessing the significance of scored best local alignments, particularly suited to protein sequence comparisons, is described. The method establishes the parameters describing the distribution of the best results from any search program, provided that the set is sufficiently large and the majority of the alignments arise from unrelated(More)
Neo-adjuvant chemotherapy is an integral part of multi-modality approach in the management of locally advanced breast cancer and it is vital to predict the response in order to tailor the regime for a patient. The common final pathway in the tumor cell death is believed to be apoptosis or programmed cell death and chemotherapeutic drugs like other(More)
The rational design of enzyme catalysts for chiral chemistry and of drugs which bind to proteins would be facilitated if rules for the recognition of one partner by the other could be formulated. This communication suggests and tests one generalization: arginine forms a tighter ion pair with a carboxylate group than does lysine and is always used for(More)
