Non-synonymous single nucleotide changes (nSNC) are coding variants that introduce amino acid changes in their corresponding proteins. They can affect protein function; they are believed to have the largest impact on human health compared with SNCs in other regions of the genome. Such a sequence alteration directly affects their structural stability through(More)
Indiscriminate application of pesticides like chlorpyrifos, diazinon, or malathion contaminate the soil in addition has being unsafe often it has raised severe health concerns. Conversely, microorganisms like Trichoderma, Aspergillus and Bacteria like Rhizobium Bacillus, Azotobacter, Flavobacterium etc have evolved that are endowed with degradation of(More)
Inappropriate activation of the Hh signaling pathway has been implicated in the development of several types of cancers including prostate, lung, pancreas, breast, brain and skin. Present study identified the binding affinities of eight established inhibitors viz., Cyclopamine, Saridegib, Itraconazole, LDE-225, TAK-441, BMS-833923 (XL139), PF-04449913 and(More)
Degradation of Petroleum-plastics like Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a budding challenge due to increasing white pollution. The present investigation has focused the aspect through microbial assisted biodegradation. Various indigenous microorganisms were isolated from collected municipal landfill soil. Growth medium enriched with 0.2 g of LDPE powder(More)
BACKGROUND A subset of asthmatics shows refractoriness to Salbutamol owing to ADRB2 gene C.T polymorphism (rs 1800888) that substitutes Thr to Ile at the position 164 in the β2 adrenergic receptor leading to sub-optimal binding of Salbutamol. The present study aims to associate the Salbutamol (200 mcg) refractoriness with the polymorphism and select the(More)
Global QSAR models predict biological response of molecular structures which are generic in particular class. A global QSAR dataset admits structural features derived from larger chemical space, intricate to model but more applicable in medicinal chemistry. The present work is global in either sense of structural diversity in QSAR dataset or large number of(More)
Psoriasis is one of the most prevalent chronic inflammatory diseases of the skin. The Wnt pathways have been documented to play essential role in stem cell self-renewal and keratinocyte differentiation in the skin. Antagonizing the Wnt5a protein would emerge as a novel therapeutics in psoriasis treatment. In this view, we have developed and characterized(More)
Since the discovery of Hsp90, a decade ago, it has surfaced as a potential target in breast cancer therapy along with other cancers. In present study, we have selected seven established Hsp inhibitors viz., PU3, CCT-018159, CNF-2024, SNX-5422, NVP (AUY-922), EGCG and IPI-504 used in the treatment of cancer. Considering these seven inhibitors as a parent(More)
The Translationally Controlled Tumor Protein (TCTP) has been investigated for tumor reversion and is a target of cancer therapy. Down regulators which suppress the expression of TCTP can trigger the process of tumor reversion leading to the transformation of tumor cells into revertant cells. The present investigation is a novel protein-protein docking(More)
Inhibition of EGFR-EGF interactions forms an important therapeutic rationale in treatment of non-small cell lung carcinoma. Established inhibitors have been successful in reducing proliferative processes observed in NSCLC, however patients suffer serious side effects. Considering the narrow therapeutic window of present EGFR inhibitors, the present study(More)
