PURPOSE Large copy number variations (CNV) can contribute to increased burden for neurodegenerative diseases. In this study, we analyzed the genome-wide burden of large CNVs > 100 kb in primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), a neurodegenerative disease of the eye that is the largest cause of irreversible blindness. METHODS Genome-wide analysis of CNVs > 100(More)
INK4 locus at chromosome 9p21 has been reported to be associated with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and its subtypes along with the associated optic disc parameters across the populations of European, Japanese and African ancestries. The locus encodes three tumor suppressor genes namely CDKN2A, ARF, CDKN2B and a long non-coding RNA CDKN2B-AS1 (also(More)
CONTEXT Hypotension following spinal anaesthesia for caesarean delivery may decrease uteroplacental perfusion and produce foetal acidosis. The optimal anaesthetic technique for mothers with foetal growth restriction and impaired Doppler flow is unclear. OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of low-dose spinal anaesthesia and general anaesthesia on neonatal(More)
Somatic variation in DNA can cause cells to deviate from the preordained genomic path in both disease and healthy conditions. Here, using exome sequencing of paired tissue samples, we show that the normal human brain harbors somatic single base variations measuring up to 0.48% of the total variations. Interestingly, about 64% of these somatic variations in(More)
Glaucoma is the largest cause of irreversible blindness affecting more than 60 million people globally. The disease is defined as a gradual loss of peripheral vision due to death of Retinal Ganglion Cells (RGC). The RGC death is largely influenced by the rate of aqueous humor production by ciliary processes and its passage through the trabecular meshwork(More)
2S albumin is a low-molecular-weight seed storage protein belonging to the prolamin superfamily. In the present work a small 2S albumin (WTA) protein of ~16 kDa has been purified from the seeds of Wrightia tinctoria.The WTA is a heterodimer protein with a small subunit of ~5 kDa and a larger subunit of ~11 kDa bridged together through disulphide bonds. The(More)
In cancer patients early institution of therapy placed a very important role and delay in the diagnosis and treatment can cause catastrophe. Affirm step to cut shot this delay requires detailed information about each step of patient referral journey and for fulfillment of above aim, we interviewed 101 patients, to calculate the elapsed time at each step.(More)
Globulins are a major class of seed storage proteins which were thought to be enzymatically inactive. These proteins belong to the most ancient cupin superfamily. They can be graded into 11S legumin type and 7S vicilin type based on their sedimentation coefficients. Members from both classes share structural homology are thought to have evolved from either(More)
Editing in microRNAs, particularly in seed can significantly alter the choice of their target genes. We show that out of 13 different human tissues, different regions of brain showed higher adenosine to inosine (A-to-I) editing in mature miRNAs. These events were enriched in seed sequence (73.33%), which was not observed for cytosine to uracil (17.86%)(More)
